Rodney Graham studied at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver) from 1968 to 1971 and at Simon Fraser University (Vancouver) from 1978 to 1979 and currently lives and works in Vancouver, BC. He has worked across a variety of media, including photography, music, sculpture, books, and painting. He explores the connections between various layers of everyday life and cultural history. Using poetic irony and allusive puns his work balances a line between reality and fiction.

Most recently, he has received solo exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago, Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona, Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume (Paris), Musee d'art contemporain de Montral, among others. Graham's work is held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Centre Pompidou (Paris), and the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), among others. He is represented by 303 Gallery (New York), Hauser & Wirth (Zurich) and Lisson Gallery (London), among others.
