COMMISSIONED BY Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa

 

James Luna, End of Acoustic, 2005, from a faux rock & roll multimedia installation -
All Indian All the Time

 

James Luna (Luiseno Indian, b. 1950) uses a variety of media including made and found objects, moving image, and sound in his performance/installation work. His multifaceted pieces employ humour and irony to challenge audiences to re-examine their perceptions of what it means to be Native American, calling attention to the difficulties, complexities and challenges facing indigenous people today. The resulting performances and works hold highly specific references that also respond to universal concerns of place and identity, more and more commonly experienced as a result of globalisation and increasing migration.

 

Luna is an internationally recognised conceptual artist working with installation and performance. Luna’s work has featured in the Whitney Biennale, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, the National Gallery of Canada, and the Nippon International Performance Art Festival in Japan. In 2005 he was selected by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian for the Venice Biennale.
