About Rodney Graham

Rodney Graham is associated with the “Vancouver School” of artists’ distinctive, photography-based practices, including Stan Douglas and Jeff Wall. Graham's multimedia works frequently incorporate diverse historical, philosophic, literary, or cinematic allusions and employ circular structures or narratives. In the film trilogy Vexation Island (1999), How I Became a Ramblin' Man (1999), and City Self/Country Self (2001), the artist plays characters like a castaway and a cowboy caught in repetitive cycles of actions and gestures.

Canadian, b. 1949, Vancouver, Canada, based in Vancouver, Canada
