The Vancouver Art Gallery presents Dana Claxton: Fringing the Cube, the first-ever career survey for the award-winning Hunkpapa Lakota (Sioux) artist, on view October 27, 2018 to February 3, 2019. Merging Lakota traditions with so-called Western influences, while utilizing a powerful “mix, meld and mash” approach, Claxton addresses the oppressive legacies of colonialism by critiquing representations of Indigenous people that circulate in art, literature and popular culture. Photography, film, video and performance documentation trace nearly thirty years of Claxton’s career and her investigations into Indigenous identity, beauty, gender and the body.
