Since the early 1980s, Lum has regularly been represented in exhibitions throughout North America, Europe and Asia, including such prestigious shows as Documenta, the Shanghai Biennale and, most recently, the Istanbul Biennal. This richly illustrated volume, which contains insightful essays by celebrated critics and curator Grant Arnold, accompanies a large-scale exhibition organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery that celebrates Lum's entire career and showcases important aspects of his work that have never been seen before in North America. Clearly written and sumptuously designed, Ken Lum showcases the intelligent, provocative and passionate work of one of Canada's foremost artists, recent winner of the Hnatyshyn Visual Arts Award for outstanding achievement by a Canadian artist.
