Dana Claxton (Lakota)
Video Installation and Photography
Vancouver, British Columbia

Through her art practice, Dana Claxton has critiqued many aspects of government, religion and consumer culture as they affect and disaffect contemporary Aboriginal peoples in Canada and the United Sates. She has produced many single-channel works, video installations and performances in the past decade. Pieced together, these projects form a subversive societal critique using traditional knowledge and contemporary art interface. Claxton is a 2006 ImagiNATION honoree. Her artwork is in the permanent art collections of many institutions across Canada, including the Canada Council Art Bank, Vancouver Art Gallery, and Winnipeg Art Gallery. Her work is also found in numerous library collections.
