Outta This World
(Support will be available in the gallery from 12:00 to 3:00 pm on the following dates: May 13, 14, 16, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 30)
The Department of Fine Arts and UWAG present the second of two thesis exhibitions by MFA candidates from the graduate program in Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo. Outta This World is comprised of drawing, video, music, performance and installation elements. This body of work is an outcome of my thinking about the concept of the nation-state, in this case Canada, and the way that it imposes specific identities on its’ citizens. Using strategies of humour, abject beauty, social engagement and ritual, my work proposes alternate possibilities of Canada through a difficult, yet ultimately beneficial process of de-repression. The artist would like to thank: Joy of Flowers, Princess Cinema, Bang-On, and The Yeti Cafe.
The MFA Preview is a survey exhibition showcasing recent works in various media by first year candidates in the UW MFA program.
Opening reception: Thursday, May 7 from 5:00–8:00 pm
