Ken Lum and Hubert Damisch

Guided by an interest in ethnography, Ken Lum creates works that are politically charged and that frequently address the experience of culture clash. Seeking to engage the viewer in dialogue, Lum's installations and sculptures often immerse his audience in a foreign locale, miming the experience of an immigrant or of an earlier time. A monumental globe featuring national boundaries, the public art commission January 1, 1960 was erected in a troubled, multiethnic neighborhood in Utrecht, provoking questions of multiculturalism and globalization. Lum has represented in Canada at the Sao Paolo Biennial, the Sydney Biennial, and the Johannesburg Biennial and was a Guggenheim Fellow in 1999.

French philosopher Hubert Damisch frequently works within the fields of art history and aesthetics. His melding of semiotics, psychoanalysis, anthropology, and art criticism creates thoughtful scholarship and rich analyses. A resident scholar at the Getty Research Institute, Damisch has also taught at Cornell University and at Columbia University.
