Activities Guided tours

Rodney Graham. Through the Forest

03 Feb. 2010

This exhibition brings together a hundred or so works by the Canadian artist Rodney Graham done between 1978 and 2008 and taken from public and private collections in Europe and North America. Graham uses different supports (books, video, sculpture, device-machines, painting, photography, installation, printed material and music) to produce works that defy authority and some key concepts of the history of contemporary art, and play with perception.

Graham's work has a pronounced cerebral character and often includes art history and intellectual references from the time of the Enlightenment to the present day. His use of appropriation techniques enables him to pay tribute to some of the masters of the arts, literature, philosophy or pop music.
