Exhibition: In Circulation

Part of the 2017 Capture Photography Festival

Exhibition: In Circulation

In Circulation examines the university as a public site for the deconstruction and reconstruction of knowledge. Post-secondary study fosters the development of new modes for students to be able to see and relate to one another. And as students begin to question their existing modes of thinking and perception, they also discover new modes for interpersonal organization and production. Installed throughout SFU at the Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, In Circulation comprises photographic interventions throughout the School for the Contemporary Arts. This spatial arrangement, experienced in whole or in part, presents multiple perspectives that expose the participating artists’ movements through time, the university, and the changing circumstances of their (un)shared experiences.

Curated by Oscar Alfonso and Joni Cheung.

Featuring the work of: asmaa al-issa, Patrick Blenkarn, Jessica Chu, Stephanie Gagne, Phoebe Huang, Danyal Imani, A Yeong Kim, Ruilan King, Siena Locher-Lo, Dustin Patar, Tyler Pengelly, Rui Rui Sun, Kalvin Valko, Sophie Van den Biggelaar.

Lazy Susan

BFA Graduating Exhibition 2017

13 April 2017 – 22 April 2017, 12:00pm
Audain Gallery, SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 West Hastings Street, Vancouver BC

Lazy Susan

This exhibition presents the work of visual art students graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School for the Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University.

Jessica Chu, Danni Gárate Cubillos, Kayla Elderton, Megan Fillo, Aghigh Gougani, Andi Icaza-Largaespada, A Yeong Kim, Carolina Krawczyk, Jilann Lechner, Cindy Liu, Clara Liu, Betty Ma, Emily Marston, Sana Sayahpour, Feon Yeung, Nico Yu, and Jaromir Zelazny. 

The exhibition Lazy Susan explores the BFA graduating class' shared experience of thinking about and making art. A "Lazy Susan", formerly known as the "Revolving Server", is a stationary rotating tray that is used for sharing food around a large round table, which enables people to serve themselves, and circulate food to others.

The precise origin of the name "Lazy Susan" is unknown, yet speculative etymologies often reference domestic servitude, suggesting that the introduction of the mechanism allowed for a more democratic relationship between server and served.

As a metaphor, "Lazy Susan" proposes a common platform that supports the artworks we have developed through engaging in critical thinking and making together. Just as the "Lazy Susan" passes items around, we've circulated concepts and forms that have transformed through their rotation.
