Drawing inspiration from course readings, research, and previous projects as points of departure, the theme of “multiples” provides the unifying theme for this annual VA116 student exhibition. Examining the space, nooks and crannies of the gallery and the psyche, the culmination of completed works will be installed into a unified installation with the objective of simultaneously engaging the audience with a physical, visual, psychological and sentient experience.

This exhibition explores the role of photography in our culture as a means of artistic expression, reflecting on the meaning behind the pictures we take. The exhibition presents an amalgam of digital and analogue images produced by first and second year students taking photo courses in the Visual Arts program at UFV. The works are based on assignments given throughout the year, which explore various digital and wet darkroom techniques rooted in the genres of portraiture, landscape, documentary, and experimental photography.
February 16-March 8, 2016
Showcasing screen-based art works, this exhibition aims to bring students and international artists together in an installation-based setting where the screen takes over the viewing space.

Inspired by a woven blanket, we have created a large scale art installation, made out of hundreds of items reclaimed from Residential Schools, churches, government buildings and traditional and cultural structures including Friendship Centres, band offices, treatment centres and universities, from across Canada. The Witness Blanket stands as a national monument to recognise the atrocities of the Indian Residential School era, honour the children, and symbolise ongoing reconciliation.
