Friend Zone

Artist of Indigenous and European heritage Brian Jungen draws on his Dane-zaa roots and eye for trends to create multimedia works that focus on tribal icons and allegiances across cultures. He’s known for using sports gear (Air Jordans and jerseys) to fashion totem poles and headdresses, but his solo exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Brian Jungen: Friendship Centre, showcases large-scale sculptures and 3,000 images from the artist’s archives.
