    Associate Professor, Elizabeth McIntosh, exhibits Violet’s Hair, a solo exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery.

    Primarily known for her painting, McIntosh also works in collage. In Violet’s Hair, she will work in both mediums. For this exhibition, as well as exhibiting new paintings, she builds two large-format collages: one will wrap the exterior of the gallery, using the window vitrines, and the other will occupy one of the galleries; each carrying a dimensional quality. This is not the first time Elizabeth has worked with collage in this scale, but it is the first instance in which she has built a structure as the ground.

    Brian Jungen (92) exhibits a major new sculptural installation at Catriona Jeffries. The exhibit will take form over a two month progression of exhibition making.

    Brian’s sculptural practice which shapeshifts materials claimed as both commercial products and natural resources will be enacted within a provisional workshop within the gallery, functioning as a constantly shifting site of production. As a result of this process a number of works will be completed and in turn installed in the gallery; he will work towards particular moments of production at which time the gallery will be closed for two installation periods.

    Not long ago, the thought of product design conjured images of plastic, steel and wood, but this perception has been rapidly changing – and while it’s true that the traditional materials of industrial design remain essential, textiles have been gaining attraction over the past 10 years as a material with much to offer.

    In Was there ever any domination which did not appear natural to those who possessed it?, Blaine Campbell (07 + sessional faculty) exhibits works from an ongoing series of landscape studies which seek to investigate the mythos of nature in the collective Canadian psyche. Presented as large-scale photographic prints and the beginning of a related sculptural investigation, these works examine the marks and detritus of change, use and exploitation; many exhibit the aftermath of an inherent violence within and upon the landscape.
