The latest in our “From the Archives” spotlight is dated February 11, 2007: Richard Holland, Duncan MacKenzie and Meg Onli talk to Rodney Graham on the occasion of his solo exhibition at Donald Young Gallery. And hey, coincidentally, Rodney Graham has a new show up at Donald YoungÂ right now, through November 23rd, 2011!
Rodney Graham, on repeatedly recasting himself in his work:
â€œIt was just easier to do that, and it gave me a certain limit, placing limits on what I would do. It was a way of maybe trying to distinguish my work from other Vancouver artists who are really masterful at that like Jeff Wall or Stan Douglasâ€¦I thought the performance thing was maybe more my thing. It was a way of doing something that was my own.â€Â — Rodney Graham, interviewed by Bad at Sports.
