Unpacking Art: Lunchtime Talks on Works in the SFU Art Collection is a speaker series that invites members of the SFU community to "unpack" the context and the questions raised by works of art in the collection.

Ivana Filipovich's career at SFU was, until recently, focused on educational media production. The productions she led and participated in garnered accolades from top tier national and international design and digital media competitions. Now in an operations role in Communications and Marketing at SFU, she is exploring analytics and data-driven decision making. 

With her experience spanning the fields of architecture, archeology, digital media and storytelling, Filipovich is interested in the intersection of technology and art. She will speak about the influence of fine arts and technology advancements on design, with a specific example from the SFU Gallery Art Collection that made a lasting impression on her, as well as some of the world's most revolutionary graphic designers.

Milton Ernest "Robert" Rauschenberg (October 22, 1925 - May 12, 2008) was an American painter and graphic artist whose early works anticipated the pop art movement. Rauschenberg is well known for his "Combines" of the 1950s, in which non-traditional materials and objects were employed in innovative combinations.

This series encourages participation from audiences that are new to visual art and to the SFU Art Collection.

Unpacking Art is free and open to everyone. No advance preparation or registration is necessary. Bring your lunch.
