UBC Visual Art Grad Show – TODAY’S SPECIAL

UBC Visual Art Grad Show - TODAY'S SPECIAL
Where: 650 Industrial Ave, Vancouver, B.C. (near 2nd Ave and Main St)
Dates: Friday April 18 – Sunday April 27
Hours: 11am – 6pm daily

TODAY’S SPECIAL is an exhibition showcasing artworks from UBC BFA/BA visual arts students.

These graduating students’ artworks reflect a socially critical perspective and an acute art/historical/cultural awareness. Many common threads link these aesthetically diverse works: e.g. the construction of identity: childhood, gender, race, sexuality; reflections on digital technology; city planning, urban construction, and the coming Vancouver Olympics; the environment, ideas of nature, and the landscape tradition; nostalgia; labour.

Joanne often gets really excited when she talks about Science. Luckily, she works in the Advanced Molecular Biology Laboratory, the educational arm of the Michael Smith Labs. She likes all kinds of science but has a special spot in her heart for biology, technology, and well, sports. As a scientist and educator at UBC, she hopes that she never becomes so specialized that she loses her global perspective. (When she gets around to writing an intro post, I'm sure that she'll link to it here).
