Winner of the inaugural Sobey Art Award in 2002, Canada's largest prize given to an artist under the age of 40, Brian Jungen has been acclaimed for producing evocative work that transforms ubiquitous consumer items into inventive sculptural forms, often linking his First Nations heritage to issues of cultural identity and the global economy. This visually stunning book is the first to chronicle the oeuvre of one of Canada's most compelling young artists and includes essays from five internationally respected curators plus an interview with the artist himself. Accompanying the texts are spectacular reproductions of Jungen's most acclaimed works, including many new works created in 2004 and 2005. Brian Jungen is an authoritative volume on one of Canada's most fascinating new artists.

Brian Jungen was educated at the Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design, Concordia University and the Banff Centre for the Arts. He lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia, and exhibits internationally.

This book was published in partnership with the Vancouver Art Gallery.
