    CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

    Establishments, institutions, public areas, domestic spaces, even ephemeral situations carry with them protocols with which we are asked to comply as we encounter, enter, or pass through them. Our contemporary understanding of “protocol” is as “an official procedure or system of rules governing affairs or behaviours.” However, early definitions of the term—a provisional draft, a working manuscript—imply its opposite.

    We invite submissions of recent or proposed work from students active in any and all media, to be considered for inclusion in an exhibition project investigating this expanded space of protocol, collaboratively curated by the students of Emily Carr University’s AHIS 401 Topics in Curatorial Projects.

    A Stable World That Will Last Forever is a constructed portrait of Vancouver by Krista Jahnke ('09) in collaboration with HCMA | AIR displayed at the Olympic Village Station until April 2015.

    The photo montage is a composition using recognizable architectural elements in Vancouver organized into a new configuration, which allows the viewer to imagine our city within a new landscape and context. By rearranging line, space and forms that communicate the power of architecture within the environment and how people interact with both, the piece is a starting point that invites viewers to envision Vancouver from a different perspective while moving through the city.

    Eros and Thanatos, the life drive and the death drive. The impulses to eat, kiss, play, love, and live, or to sleep, surrender, die, and rest. They embody our curious attraction to both creation and destruction. In this show, artists Nomi Chi and Pandora Young turn inwards and meditate upon our own antipodal desires, and the morbidity and splendour of our humanity.
