FOFA Gallery, Room EV 1.715, Engineering, Computer Science and Visual
Arts Integrated Complex (1515 Ste-Catherine St. W.), Sir George Williams
deals with the intersections between photography, walking and city space in his exhibition Every Foot of the Sidewalk: boulevard Saint-Laurent (2010-2012)
. Photography and ambulating have a conspicuous relationship to urban space - while one fixes a horizon line, where (for an instant) the present past and present future meet, the other sets a rhythm that counters the frenzy of the contemporary metropolis. Guillaume's installation will present photography, video and reference materials in an expanded exhibition of his individualized program master's thesis.
On January 16, Martha Langford, Concordia University Research Chair and Director, Gail and
Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art, and
Department of Art History professor, will engage Philippe Guillaume in
conversation. Her role as his thesis advisor, amongst other
responsibilities and accolades, will ensure a lively and relevant
conversation of the work at hand, the practice of research/creation, and
their historical interactions.Jude Griebel
In Grow Apart
, MFA in Studio Arts candidate Jude Griebel
explores the relationship between figurative sculpture and oil painting, motivated by themes of psychology, fantasy and the supernatural. Depicting bodies in states of transformation, his work examines how our imagination negotiates abstract notions such as growth, change and mortality though metaphorical and experiential avenues.
