Publication Date 2008
Description Perspectives 161: Tim Lee exhibition featured work by the Vancouver-based artist who uses video, photography, and performance to insert himself into cultural events and icons. Lee makes one of the fundamental principles of 1960s Conceptual Art—the belief that the artist can function as an amateur cultural theoretician—the heart of his complex, analytical, and often hilarious work in video and photography. Playing the role of Sunday philosopher, anthropologist, and ethnomusicologist, Lee dissects and re-envisions revealing aspects of popular culture, film, and music. Tim Lee was born in Seoul, Korea, in 1975. He received an MFA from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, in 2002. Includes an essay by Toby Kamps; documentation of the artist’s career.
