    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.

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.
