Raymond Boisjoly: The Explanatory Void
March 25 - July 24, 2022
Raymond Boisjoly works with text, photography, and images to contemplate modes of transmission and consider how language, culture, and ideas can be mediated, framed, or received. A Vancouver-based artist of Haida and Quebecois descent, Boisjoly expands on the Vancouver School’s post-conceptual photographic practices while attending to complex negotiations of Indigeneity in the context of colonialism. Interested in the ways that both images and language can break, distort, falter, or fail, Boisjoly draws on, and bends, vernacular conventions in language, photography, and fabrication.
The Explanatory Void at the List Center marked Boisjoly’s first US museum solo exhibition.
