BFA Graduating Exhibition 2014
The Young and the Repless
April 17 – April 26, 2014
Audain Gallery, Vancouver
This April at Audain Gallery, the seventeen students of SFU’s School for Contemporary Arts’ 4th year class present their Graduating Exhibition, The Young and the Repless. The title humorously refers to our status as emerging artists who have completed four years of study, but who are without representation or reputations. As we organize our exhibition and make our art works, we contemplate the future with a hopeful belief in artistic freedom and experimentation, yet also a deep sense of anxiety. We are at a crossroads: the exhibition represents a moment of differentiation framed by the awareness that every year legions of art school graduates enter the world. There is no explicit common denominator across the works in the exhibition; however, a certain emphasis on materiality is evident: the gallery will be full of fabric, bricks, sticks, string, concrete, glitter and photography.
Participating artists are: Lindsey Adams, Susan Lizeth Bernal Clavijo, Dasha Boichenko, Taylor Boisjoli, Katy Slany Churcher, Adrienne Evans, Gabrielle Hill, Dana Howell, Coco Huang, Amanda Jang, Angela Lin, Sherry Ma, Kun Peng, Emily Starkey, Linnea Strom, Alex Stursberg and Krystal Wong.
Please note: Audain Gallery will be open regular hours on Friday, April 18, and Sunday, April 20, over the holiday weekend.
Presented by the School for the Contemporary Arts at SFU.
April 16, 7pm
