with the role of photography within personal and collective memory. See what the photo students have been up to as some of them have experimented with the liquid light medium, a challenging and time-consuming process which allows for the application of liquid emulsion onto any surface.


Sep 24- Oct 9, Visual Arts Gallery Building B

The UFV Visual Arts Department is pleased to present the world of Aaron Moran, a Fraser Valley artist who recently completed his residency with the Ranger Station Gallery, in Harrison, B.C.

Composed principally of reclaimed materials from demolition and development projects scattering the Lower Mainland, DEVELOPMENT PROPOSAL aims to reverse the trend of erasing histories by producing tangible visual placeholders from the very materials that stand in the way of so-called progress. Mirrored in the work are glimpses into the increasing wastelands of toppled architecture and upturned land. Hard geometric lines reflect the manner in which land is zoned and sectioned off for appropriate use, seemingly with emphasis on replacing the natural environment with the most unnatural of structures.

We Insist!
