    DEADLINE EXTENDED!

    DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS MONDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2017 AT MIDNIGHT

    ACAD Students’ Association is seeking applications for the 2017 Hear/d residency. Part of the ACADSA mandate is to provide professional development opportunities for students while also helping to facilitate the development of a strong student artist community + culture. The ACADSA Hear/d residency invites individuals and collectives from all discipline areas to work together to collaborate on the research, development, creation and curation of an exhibition.

    The residency will have its own central theme of resilience, relating to the journey of mental health issues currently experienced by many post-secondary students. Given this theme, participants are invited to explore and share their journeys in a creative and innovative way. Through group discussions, reflection, individual studio time, critiques, and workshops, this residency will provide a platform for a diversity of creative activity. The residency will aim to raise awareness towards the health + well-being of post-secondary students, while also connecting members from different disciples who will help to build a stronger sense of inclusion and comradery in the ACAD community. For more information on the Hear/d residency visit www.acadsa.ca/heard.

    RESILIENCE

    Being in good health means more than feeling physically well; it also means feeling mentally well. Today, we are more aware of how our mental and physical health affect each other. Setting aside time to focus on mental health is important – to you and those who care about you. Life is full of change, risks and challenges. Good mental or emotional health helps us find our balance and stay in control, even during turbulent times. – Canadian Mental Health Association (2017)

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    The plasticky, junky found objects of Ambiguities of the third dimension are discarded items past their prime, rescued as sculptural objects. These found components are at turns obfuscated, elevated and even narrativized as both sculptural work and the subject of five prints.
    As sculpture, these objects’ material qualities take precedence. But through the process of silkscreening, the objects’ dimensionality is traded in for colour and halftone, and this flattened representation is redistributed through takeaway prints. Both processes are in pursuit of the status, history and future of these things that have come from our consumerism.

    Kerry Maguire is an artist and musician living in Calgary, Alberta. She is in her final year at the Alberta College of Art + Design, and works mainly with found objects and sculpture.

    Exhibition Runs: Oct. 2 – Oct. 27, 2017

    Reception: Oct. 19, 6 pm – 8 pm

    Main Mall, at the Alberta College of Art + Design

    These images are from a video performance of a modern Venus that is derived from Sandro Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus (1480). This reborn Venus is devouring and destroying art historical icons (pomegranate and papaya) that negatively represent females then cleansing herself in milk to reclaim her body. The aggression and power shown in these photos show a new Venus who is not concerned about fulfilling a purpose for others, but solely focuses on her desires and needs.Natalie Stevenson (b. 1995) is a mixed media artist living and working in Calgary, Alberta. Her work focuses on her own femme identity and negotiating the implications around her experiences. She is currently working towards her BFA at the Alberta College of Art + Design with a major in drawing.
