His Art

Allan Sekula's art and photography has been exhibited all over the world. His last solo show was This Ain't China at Simon Fraser University Gallery in Vancouver, Canada, in late 2012. Also a filmmaker, Sekula last directed the documentary The Forgotten Space with Noël Burch. The film essay seeks to understand the contemporary maritime world in relation to the symbolic legacy of the sea.
