UNIVERSITY LECTURE SERIES:
Davida Kidd — Who Needs Art When You Have a View Like This
Abbotsford B121
February 1, 2013    4:00 pm
 
Davida Kidd’s latest body of work features an array of images that engage in biting double entendres.
It was inspired by a billboard Kidd read when driving across the Cambie Street Bridge that exclaimed “Who Needs Art When You Have a View Like This!” In keeping with Kidd’s practice of constructing sets and staging subjects, she creates large-scale photographic images that use digital collage to combine multiple objects, images, and views.
Davida Kidd’s practice addresses themes of the blurred line between illusion and reality. She cultivates the ambiguous moments at which subjects become invented by the viewer.
Born in Edmonton, Davida Kidd received her BFA and MVA in Print Media from the University of Alberta, where she specialized in Print Media, Photography, Digital Imaging and Installation. Kidd is currently an instructor in the UFV Visual Arts department. She was awarded the prestigious Grand Prix at the 2003 International Print Triennial in Poland and recently received a major project grant from the Canada Council of the Arts.
