    Established in 2005 by Anna Ruth (1993-96) and Juho Jappinen, House Games is a thematic art triennial that focuses on themes of home, family and house. For one week, a private apartment home in central Finland will also serve as a public exhibition space. This year's artists focus on a basic, if not primary aspect of the home: the living ephemeral experience of life (in no specific order): death, birth, play, decaying/aging, collecting and remembering. This year five lumen prints by Phyllis Schwartz (10) will be shown in House Games 2011.

    For more information, please visit House Games or visit the blog.

    Roy Arden ('82) is well known for his austere photographs of Vancouver's cityscape. UNDERTHESUN sheds light on the other aspect of his practise centred on found images, collage and the archive. The exhibition includes works in multiple media including; drawing, painting, collage, video and sculpture. Whether in his online work, artist's blog and digital collage, or his intimate handmade collages, Arden's incessant digging through the image archive always seems focused on finding the root causes for our present condition.
