Brian Jungen: Strange Comfort
Online exhibit featuring the work of contemporary Native artist Brian Jungen, who transforms mass-produced goods into sculptures that are simultaneously fake and authentic, playful and political, common and extraordinary. Using golf bags to make a totem or plastic chairs to create a whale skeleton, he infuses the objects with meaning, riffing on Indian imagery, pop culture, and consumerism.
