    In an ever growing landscape of pop-ups and shops, A Pop Up Affair was formed as a collective to try and shift the way new designers could collaborate and expose their work in Vancouver. A Pop-Up Affair is a collective of a designers and makers, whose nine founding members are all recent graduates from Emily Carr University.

    They saw an opportunity in the design community to create engaging spaces that promote the work of young designers in Vancouver. Together they build spaces that promote and expose new design and creative conversations.

    Currently the Vancouver Pop-up Affair collective are preparing for their inaugural event, Peep Show, which will be taking place from September 19 to 28, 2014, at MakerLabs.

    James Kemp ('12) was awarded a Special Judges' Award for his piece, Morphology 2, at the International Ceramics Festival '14 in Mino, Japan.

    Holger Kalberg’s ('01) latest exhibition, THE FAMILY, explores the legacy of high Modernism and its related utopian models of thinking, presenting new paintings and sculptures that examine and critique modes of Modernist vocabulary.
    Kalberg describes his own relationship with Modernism as “conflicted appreciation,” often engaging with the aesthetics of the mode while at the same time critiquing the model. The works presented in this exhibition follow Kalberg’s desire for a renewed reflection of Modernist formalism through an investigation into the artist's own studio practice, motivation, and early influences, especially Joseph Beuys and his socialist/utopian agenda.
