    The Writing Lesson is an exhibition by Raymond Boisjoly (06) at Republic Gallery.

    The Writing Lesson* looks to the visual component of the heavy metal subgenre of black metal as a vernacular mode of writing to illustrate place names with indigenous origins. A significant amount of black metal music seeks to recuperate pre-Christian spiritual elements in the face of the forceful encroachment of monotheistic faiths. Through a rudimentary photographic process, the light of the sun has burned the names of places such as Masset, Skidegate, Chilliwack and Yakima into plain black construction paper with the hope more will be revealed than concealed.

    Equinox Gallery presents an exhibition of new paintings by Gordon Smith (46).

      "...Gordon Smith's current practice, which revels in the transformation of memory and vision into concrete objects, puts a positive and dialectical spin on our interior and exterior relationship to the world. Rather than view these works as black or white, we need to understand how much the two bodies of work depend on each other. It is only by seeing how colourful and steeped in memory his black paintings are and how entangled and twisted his white paintings can be that Smith's project comes into full focus as a critically engaged modernist practice."

    - from "Black and White" by Patrik Andersson, 2011

    Krista Jahnke ('09) has been invited to participate in New Biology, Moore Gallery's first Artist Invitational.The exhibition showcases work from ten emerging artists from across Canada with special guest, Harold Feist.

    Jahnke is a photographer and multi-disciplinary designer based in Vancouver. Much of her practice is informed by her interests in modern ideologies in art and design, and the trivialities of everyday life. With an interest in the histories, functions and psychologies behind place and popular commodities, her photographs depict overlooked landscapes and objects. A consistent link throughout Jahnke's work is the exploration of consumerism and the power of representation.

    Curated by Michael Adams.

    grunt gallery is pleased to present Rebecca Chaperon’s latest suite of paintings, entitled Like a Great Black Fire. In this series, an elongated and detailed landscape stretches across canvases populated by foreboding, black, geometric forms and meticulously rendered figures. Her current paintings portray the narrative of a female protagonist within a surreal landscape. Chaperon’s subject matter ranges from ethereal and dream-like to darkly humorous; she often deals with the feminine perspective from an autobiographical point of view.

    Chaperon graduated from Emily Carr in 2002.

    Are you an artist, a revolutionary, an owner? Questions of ownership permeate our culture – sample a sound, claim the East Van sign, remix a logo… Whether you’re an artist playing with images or sound, a coder or an activist, at some point you’ve probably asked yourself whether what you are doing is legal.

    The Artists’ Legal Outreach (ALO) in association with New Forms Festival 2011 and W2 Community Media Arts presents Art, Revolution and Ownership, a multidisciplinary exploration of the ideas that inform art and the law. The performances, exhibitions and conversations explore the idea of the public domain, copyright and cultural consumption.
