    Back Gallery Project and Pattison Art in Transit are presenting the anticipated third and final iteration of their Strathcona Billboard Project with Annie Briard’s public art work Any Day Now as part of Capture Photography Festival.

    Instructor and MAA alumna Annie Briard ('13) creates moving images and lens-focused work to confront visual perception and the interpretation of what we see. Her practice exploits elements that influence vision including embodiment, reverie, and ocular phenomena. By decontextualizing what the viewer expects of billboards, using the optical recursive void and offering a stereoscopic 3D viewing potential, Any Day Now underlines connections between visual attention, wonder, and possibility.

    The Burrard Arts Foundation welcomes Sean Mills ('10) as their new artist in residence. Sean's residency will culminate in a solo exhibition of his work at the Burrard Arts Foundation in May 2015.

    Sean will work on a new body of work that explores his interest in light, transparency and especially pushing the boundaries of paint. Sean is interested in the ability of paint to both occupy and contain space, its interaction with light, and the effects of time, labour, and process.

    For more information, please visit Burrard Arts Residency.
