    Malaspina Printmakers is pleased to present alumnus David Khang’s exhibition The tank, the poem, and the uniform.

    The exhibition examines various colonial histories through new work that expands on performances and installations he created over the past ten years. The printed triptych, diptychs, postcards, and game board reference the game Monopoly through their use of colour, composition, and graphics. By replacing the content of Monopoly with new content including depictions of military characters and slogans relating to historical events of national and international conflict, Khang draws attention to the relationship between militia, capitalism, colonialism, gameplay, and propaganda.

    Black Hole Sun presents new works by Blaine Campbell ('07 & former sessional faculty) and Scott Massey ('03) combining their interests in astronomy, cosmology, and quantum physics. The various photographs, installation works, and sculptures investigate the very small and the very large, as the works urge us to ask questions about the nature of existence and the troubling duality of light as both medium and pure energy. They examine figurative and literal aspects of the seemingly unknowable, unfathomable, or invisible, brought to light through sustained engagement and investigation.

Process/Expression: Prints/Impressions challenges perceptions while inspiring a new appreciation for light and shadow by investigating the unique, creative and innovative use of print media to express individual artistic points of view.

    Please join us as we present an exhibition showcasing beautiful moccasins created by the Emily Carr University community. This year-long initiative invited staff, faculty and Aboriginal students to participate in a Moccasin making workshop. Through demonstrations, videos and guest artists, participants were shown how to design and sew their own pair of moccasins. Beadwork was a new challenge for most, and one that was eagerly met by these first time beaders.

    The pre-cut Elk hide templates and other supplies were supplied and organized by the Aboriginal Gathering Place and held weekly drop in times. It was a wonderful opportunity for staff and faculty across disciplines and departments to interact and engage with each other and our Aboriginal students.
