FINA 3110: Curatorial Studies student programmed events, three exciting art events :
Skewing the Familiar –Art Film/Video Screening: A selection of artist-made videos that use cinematic conventions, found footage, and sometime riotous imagery to take us someplace unexpected. 5:00pm-7:00pm, Fir 128
Inevitable Cessation –Art Exhibition: a juried art exhibition based on the concept of mortality. 7:00pm-9:00pm, Spruce Art Gallery (Spruce 140)
Illuminating Spaces is a pop-up exhibition exploring the transition of a fraught relationship between public and private space. Using reflective qualities to provide insight of how intimate the public space can become through human/social interaction (or lack of), and through the changes in self-awareness and perspectives. Featured student works will include photography, painting, and multimedia works. Spruce Gallery Hallway

Launched a year ago in the fall of 2017, FOTOFILMIC//SOLO is a unique mentoring program designed for emerging & mid-career photographers working on film & other analogue media. Each artist presented here received a 2-month solo exhibition this past year & met with their respective juror(s) on Bowen island as guests to their weekend master workshop. The program encourages in-person networking and aims at fostering intergenerational dialogues on contemporary issues reshaping material photographic practices in the digital age.

DisJointed Narratives  2016 Graduating Show


The Canadian Culinary Imaginations Symposium is a two-day interdisciplinary event at KPU Richmond Melville Centre for Dialogue with over 25 invited speakers, ranging from local and international academics, to artists, curators, and writers, who will explore how Canadian writers and/or visual artists use food to articulate larger historical and cultural contexts. Full schedule and list of participants can be found HERE

The symposium will coincide with the launch of the public art exhibition "Artful Fare: Conversations About Food" featuring the collaborative art projects of KPU Fine Arts and English students as they engage in creative-critical dialogues about Canadian poetry. We are pleased to feature our creative keynote speaker Vancouver Poet Laureate Rachel Rose presenting a talk on the topic of poems inspired by food. Our other featured speaker is internationally recognized Visual Artist Sylvia Grace Borda who will do a presentation on her art projects and their relationship to sustainable food systems and economies. Attendance is FREE for KPU Students and Faculty.

Telling Lies Again
Making Narrative Art
This exhibition is a selection of works produced in the Fine Arts course Telling Lies Again – Making Narrative Art that ran in the spring of 2015.  This is a third year painting course in which students explore various approaches to creating narrative imagery. Students examine the gap between text and visual imagery through the creation of work in both single-scene and serial formats. The exhibition continues in the Art Gallery in Fir 126 and in the Arbutus Gallery, Surrey Library Atrium.
