Please join us for a FREE talk by Charles Gaines, presented as part of the Fall 2020 Visual Art Forum.

The Audain Visual Artist in Residence (AVAIR) and the School for the Contemporary Arts (SCA) are pleased to announce the Fall 2020 Visual Art Forum, a term-long series of free online public lectures by a diverse group of leading contemporary artists and thinkers from Canada, UK, Europe, Asia, and Latin America. The Visual Art Forum is presented as part of the SCA’s AVAIR program and forms a central element of our studio and seminar classes.

Charles Gaines is pivotal figure in the field of Conceptual Art. His body of work engages formulas and systems that interrogate relationships between the objective and the subjective realms. Using a generative approach to create series of works in a variety of mediums, he has built a bridge between the early conceptual artists of the 1960s and 1970s and subsequent generations of artists pushing the limits of conceptualism today. He lives and works in Los Angeles, where he is a member of the CalArts School of Art faculty. He has been the subject of numerous exhibitions in the United States and internationally, and his work is in prominent public collections.

The Visual Art Forum is organized by Kathy Slade in collaboration with SCA Visual Art faculty Sabine Bitter, Raymond Boisjoly, Elspeth Pratt, and Judy Radul.

The Audain Visual Artist in Residence program brings artists and practitioners to Vancouver who have contributed significantly to the field of contemporary art and whose work resonates with local and international visual art discourses. The visiting artists interact with the students and faculty of the School for the Contemporary Arts as well as the broader visual arts and cultural communities. The program is generously funded by the Audain Foundation Endowment Fund.

The School for the Contemporary Arts recognizes that we are on the unceded and occupied territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
