    The Master of Applied Arts (MAA) professional degree prepares students to engage in the expanding fields of design, media and visual arts within the cultural and creative economies. These programs are designed to facilitate interaction between students and faculty in a supportive atmosphere of collaboration that encourages investigation of critical thinking in both traditional approaches and innovative, hybrid forms of production. While there are three streams of study, interdisciplinary practice is something that is both supported and encouraged within all areas of the program.

    For the series In ConversationKevin Hubbard (10) undertakes a formal discussion with artistic notions seemingly "lost" to the past in order to determine their contemporary and future importance. Employing art-historical and corporate iconography, as well as recurring motifs particular to his practice, the works investigate the purpose, personas, and places of artistic production and how they are transmuted through time.

    Yu-Hang Huang (06) creates errant spaces. She embodies the architectures associated with the “national,” the “monumental” and the “sentimental” and takes them out for a walk. De-territorialized in space, she subverts the notion that identity and territory can be adequately entangled in a politics of belonging that creates an entity called “home.” Rather, what is suggested is that a historical amnesia exists that is inconsistent with the narrative of the imaginary nation that is bordered and contained.

    Yu-Hang’s show provokes a different kind of image, one that exists alongside the imaginary narrative of the nation, but that counter-acts its determinable historicity. These are narratives that are out of step with time, and not always of the same place.

    If “art is in the eye of the beholder”, then surely it can be said that vision lies in the soul of the artist. And so it was with Caroline, a reserved young woman who had a passion for art and a love for peaceful colour blended in tranquil landscape scenes. At an early age, Caroline demonstrated an exceptional talent winning regional art awards and showing her work in museums, galleries and exhibitions in California, London and Paris.

    At age 17, Caroline passed away tragically, but her artistic legacy lives on through the Caroline Victoria Coldicutt Arts Foundation (CVCAF), a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting student artists in need.
