If you are in the DC area and haven't seen the Brian Jungen exhibition yet, make your way over to the National Museum of the American Indian and check him out! In short, he takes found or mass-produced objects to create what seem to be authentic works, but not quite...
Jungen's work can be understood on many levels including creative and playful or slightly disturbing and political. Any way you look at his work, he will make you think.
