Wednesday October 29, 6:00pm
Audain Gallery

As part of his residency, Ricardo Basbaum will teach a course within SFU’s School for the Contemporary Arts with Sabine Bitter titled, The production of the artist as collective conversation. The course will provoke a conversation amongst students through reading, writing, editing and speaking, on how the role and image of the artist is constructed. The culmination of this collective conversation will be performed live in the Audain Gallery. A recording of the performance will then be installed in the gallery for the remainder of the exhibition.

Exhibition Tour
Amy Kazymerchyk and Sabine Bitter
Saturday November 22, 1pm
Audain Gallery

Join us for a tour of the exhibition led by curator Amy Kazymerchyk and SCA Assistant Professor Sabine Bitter. Afterward, walk with us to the Satellite Gallery for a 2pm tour of The Port, led by curator Cate Rimmer, then continue to Contemporary Art Gallery for a 3pm tour of Shimabuku, led by director Nigel Prince.

Since the early 1990s, Brazilian artist Ricardo Basbaum has incited artistic encounters by inviting people to engage with and respond to systems of symbols and rules embedded in objects, scripts, diagrams, maps and games. In his projects, Basbaum quotes artistic and graphic communication tactics that are both vernacular and abstract, thereby easy to learn, interpret and memorize. Through interaction with these fluid sets of visual and linguistic terms for the production of an artwork, Basbaum seeks to collectively consider the material, social and spatial membrane between artist, contemporary art system, art object and participant.

The Production of the Artist as a Collective Conversation is an emerging exhibition that frames the gallery as a critical site of pedagogical and artistic production. Over its eight-week installation, the project will accumulate conversations, experiences, and audio, visual and print documents initiated by Basbaum with students and invested publics.

As the School for the Contemporary Arts’ Audain Visual Artist in Residence, Basbaum will also facilitate reading, discussion, writing and editing towards the presentation of a public conversation and publication that considers how the image of the artist is constructed and what the prevailing forces on artistic production are.

Basbaum lives and works in Rio de Janeiro. His work has been exhibited at Logan Center Gallery, Chicago; Secession, Vienna; The Showroom, London; Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Santiago de Compostela; the 30th Bienal de São Paulo; 2012 Busan Biennale; and documenta 12. Basbaum is the author of Manual do artista-etc (Azougue, 2013) and Além da pureza visual (Zouk, 2007). He is also a Professor at the Instituto de Artes, Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, and was a visiting Professor at the University of Chicago (2013).

MA & MFA Information Session

Hosted by Professor Laura Marks, Acting Graduate Chair. With optional facility tours at 6:00 and 8:00 pm.

The MFA in Interdisciplinary Studies is an innovative program that offers the rare opportunity for artists from across the fields of dance, film, music, theatre, video, and visual art to develop their work in shared studio and theory forums. Both disciplinary and hybrid practices are welcomed. MFA students pursue a program of original research and studio work, culminating in a graduate artistic project. The two-year program is full-time, requiring students to be in the Vancouver area.

The MA in Comparative Media Arts is at the forefront of an emergent intermedial approach to the arts. Seminars give students a strong grounding in interdisciplinary research methods and new developments across moving-image media, performance studies, visual culture, and digital art. Students also have access to graduate courses across the university and the opportunity to pursue a practical placement. The four-semester program prepares students for careers in the arts and for doctoral studies.

To attend, please send an email to mfagrad@sfu.ca with the following information by Monday, November 24:

ABOUT 605 COLLECTIVE
605 Collective is a Vancouver-based dance company dedicated to producing new dance work through a shared creative process. As part of a new generation of creators inspired by the exchange between urban and contemporary dance, 605 places emphasis on movement innovation and physically demanding works, valuing collaboration as an essential tool for new directions in dance. With the group’s extreme versatility, the collective creates by using one another as the canvas for their ideas and visions, and invites guest choreographers to make new work with the company. Through constant collaboration with all involved artists and performers, 605 continues to push into new territories and awaken a fresh and exciting aesthetic, together building a highly athletic art form, with extreme physicality derived from the human experience.
