Emily Carr wishes to thank the many donors whose generosity funded student awards for The Show 2013, and acknowledge the jurors for graciously providing their expertise and time in support of emerging artists and designers.
If you missed The Show 2013, you will be able to see the works of many of award recipients at the Winsor Gallery exhibition, "Emily Carr University Award Winners" from June 27 to July 13.
Congratulations to the 2013 Award Recipients:
You Came Here By Chance is a group exhibition, highlighting select 2013 photography graduates from Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
The selected images aim to address the idea of space in relation to environment, both from a physical stand point and a state of mind. Through the included photographers considered contributions, the binaries of transience and permanence when occupying space are evaluated by the photographic medium and supplementary materials. As viewers interact with the works exhibited, it is intended that they in turn will begin to think about their personal relationships with the spaces they occupy.
We are very pleased to announce the generous establishment of the André and Marita Nudelman Awards for Visual Arts. Three awards, totaling $5,000 in prizes, will be presented during The Show (formerly Degree Exhibition). These awards are intended to acknowledge excellence in visual arts such as painting, drawing, photography and sculpture.
The University is pleased to announce that fourth year industrial design student Andreas Eiken is the recipient of the newly established 180° Thinking Student Leadership Award.
The award was created to acknowledge an undergraduate student or Masters candidate who has demonstrated active and sustained commitment to sustainability on campus and within the Vancouver community. This award is graciously sponsored by Renewal Funds.
In This Together is an exhibition evolving from an independently organized colloquium between students in three Masters of Art programs at the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University and Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
The artists in this exhibition collaborated across institutions to share their knowledge and diverse experiences of life in art school. The colloquium, which took place in March 2013, centered on discussions around the pressure of professionalization and the growth and understanding of shifts in the artists’ praxis. With this in mind, In This Together evokes a formidable space of suspension between different modes of artistic production.
Congratulations to Annie Briard (MAA Candidate) who was selected as one of 25 top winners of SSHRC’s Research for a Better Life: the Storytellers Challenge.
Founded by Danish craftsmen and cabinetmakers, Jens Ærthøj and Tage Mølholm in 1952, BoConcept has consistently set the standard for pairing fresh, innovative design with community involvement. This is reflected in one of their most recent ventures, a collaboration with Emily Carr University’s Industrial Design Program.
Fourth year Illustration major Patrick Wong received a runner-up nomination for CQ31 in Creative Quarterly: The Journal for Art & Design for his piece Death Rituals.
The illustration was created in Associate Professor Justin Novak's VAST 400 senior studio class as an art directed project. Death Rituals explores the capacity for chimpanzees to grieve for their dead and that through this common experience, it serves as a reminder that humans are also connected to the animal kingdom.
Patrick's work will be featured in the online gallery shortly.
Quantum Entanglements: Manifestations in Practice is an exhibition of selected works from a Visual Arts Studio course taught by associate professor Ingrid Koenig.
