    The Jewish Museum & Archives of British Columbia presents a Philosophers’ Café discussion Are Comics the Most Jewish Medium? with guest moderator Miriam Libicki (06).

From Art Spiegelman to Will Eisner, Aline Kominsky to Harvey Pekar, Jewish artists have adopted the comic-book format as a medium of personal expression.

    Numerous Emily Carr alumni and students will be exhibiting at Nomad Gallery.

    Actualized by a group of Emily Carr grads in January 2011, with the imperative participation of some forty graduating artists, NOMAD Gallery is a self referential Art collective which currently runs for one month at a time. One of the prevailing characteristic of the project is its "nomadic" spontaneity spawning out of the participation and support of art communities not limited to city, country or continent.

    Opening night: August 12,  7-10pm
    August 12 – September 10, 2011
    Nomad Gallery
    196 Kingsway at 10th Avenue, Vancouver

    Limited to an edition of 150, the paperback book features 32 pages of abstract, digital, hypercolor mutations based upon his illusory, character-driven paintings. “The overall tone of the book could be described as ritualistic underground sex club meets cut and paste hard-edge abstraction,” notes Brian, recently visited in his studio by Marcel Castenmiller for VMAN Magazine.

    Individually signed and numbered by Kokoska, remaining books are available at
