Rodney Graham, a Canadian-born (and based) artist, has built a diverse body of work that has earned him enormous recognition as a leading practitioner of his generation. Associated with the so-called Vancouver School that includes Ken Lum, Stan Douglas and Jeff Wall, each renowned collectively for distinctive practices based on photography. Rodney Graham has long held a dual interest in music and visual practice. In the 1970s he was part of the Vancouver's punk new wave performing with UJ3RK5 ("you jerks", with Wall), then with the band Volumizer, and solo as a singer-songwriter. His discography and play-list equal an extensive list of international group and solo exhibitions he has participated in. Graham's points of reference range from the philosophical to the musical, tangents which coalesce in a body of work that is intellectual, absurd, and entertaining.
