Events coming up at ACAD
I am involved in a variety of events coming up at ACAD in the next few weeks…
TOMORROW MARCH 19, I will be presenting on some of my current research along with my colleague Jennifer Salahub as part of the ACAD Liberal Studies Speaker Series. Our talks begin at 1230 in room 520 at ACAD.
THURSDAY, MARCH 20 is the closing reception for ACAD’s Fibre Fortnight and Mini Show and Silent Auction from 5 until 630 pm in ACAD’s Main Mall. The exhibition is really great this year and includes work across a variety of media including silk-screen, mixed media, video, weaving, papermaking and a lot more. (Bids for the Mini Show close at 6 pm and there are some amazing works to be had!)
ALSO ON THURSDAY, MARCH 20 I am moderating an alumni panel discussion titled Underwater Basket Weaving: Risk, Entrepreneurship and Strategies for Success. This event is hosted by the Fibre Program and the School of Craft and Emerging Media. We have a really excellent panel of Alumni working in a variety of media including:
- Natalie Gerber (Fibre)
- Kari Woo (Jewellery + Metals)
(Kari and Natalie collaborate on the New Craft Coalition)
- Tim Belliveau (Glass) from Bee Kingdom
- Jennie Vallis (Media Arts + Digital Technologies), a new media designer, interdisciplinary artist and member of Studio Cartel
- James Jensen (Print Media) from Atom Graphics
This event begins at 7 pm in the Stanford Perrot Lecture Theatre and promises to be an engaging and illuminating conversation with some of our best and brightest.
Finally, on MONDAY MARCH 31, I am giving an artist talk at 1 pm in the ACAD Boardroom (off the main entrance) about my recent trip to Japan and my exhibitions Frequency and Air Over Land at GalleryGallery in Kyoto.
All are welcome to all events. (Email me if you are interested in tomorrow’s talks as I will have to meet you to bring you upstairs to the fifth floor.)
