Brian Jungen (Dane-zaa, b.1970) is a visual artist of Dane-zaa and Swiss-German ancestry. In his artistic practice, Jungen addresses complex relationships between Indigenous and global cultures through the juxtaposition of cultural signifiers. Jungen incorporates visual elements from both western consumer culture and motifs drawn from Indigenous traditions, a reflection of his mixed heritage. This hybridization of identities—present through most of Jungen’s oeuvre, from small-scale drawings to large-scale sculptures and installations— queries relationships of aesthetic, economic and social power at personal and global scales. Jungen has participated in group exhibitions including Baja to Vancouver: The West Coast in Contemporary Art, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (2004) and What Water Knows, The Land Remembers, Toronto Biennial of Art (2022). Jungen has held solo exhibitions with Or Gallery, Vancouver (2000); documenta 13 (in collaboration with Duane Linklater), Kassel, Germany (2013), the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto (2019) and the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2021). He currently lives and works in the North Okanagan region of BC.
