MFA Graduating Exhibition 2013

August 28 – September 21, 2013
Audain Gallery, Vancouver

Disorientations/Illuminations presents the graduating projects of the 2013 MFA Visual Arts candidates at Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts. Split into two parts, the exhibition showcases new works in various disciplines, including painting, sculpture, video, dance, installation, sound, and socially engaged practices. The works in Disorientations investigate embodied relationships with institutions, hierarchies, and systems, be they religious, academic, or normative. The works in Illuminations emphasize the potential for personal, social, and political meanings to become embedded in and revealed through material practices.

Disorientations/Illuminations is presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of the Fine Arts.
