    Reflecting personal stories of resilience, the Hear/d Residency exhibition, presented by the Alberta College of Art + Design Students’ Association (ACADSA), opens on Wednesday, November 28. The student art exhibition runs until Wednesday, December 12 at the Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD), with the reception taking place on Thursday, December 6 at 6 p.m.

    The goal of the Hear/d Residency program is to provide a safe space for students from different disciplines to create their own community of support while simultaneously de-stigmatizing mental illness within the extended ACAD community. In line with the residency’s theme of resilience, this semester’s exhibition is titled and as it continues. The title itself is representative of the group’s collective experience with navigating mental health in the post-secondary context. Alumni and Hear/d Mentor Rocio Graham outlines, “This residency encourages students to take risks by allowing their vulnerable yet resilient voices to be heard to inform and de-stigmatize mental health within their community.”

    The three-month artist residency functions as a peer support program, while also providing professional development opportunities for student mentors who facilitate the program. Over the course of the residency, student mentors facilitate weekly meetings, studio visits and a group critique which supports the participants and the projects being made. The residency concludes with a two-week long exhibition where members of the community can observe the collection of unique works crafted, helping the mission and message resonate.

    This innovative approach to mental health support is a one of a kind program which empowers students to form valuable peer to peer relationships. Fourth year photography student and Hear/d Mentor Keiran Foster explains her own experience as a participant, “I think the most impactful part of this program was getting to be a part of a group of creatives and artists who are collectively exploring mental health in a positive and encouraging environment through our own unique practices and art forms.”

    ACADSA is a visible and vocal student-run organization that represents a creative community of students. We promote health and well-being, provide professional growth opportunities and champion students’ interests.

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.

    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)

    Caroline Araujo + Alice Schoenberg – I don’t know, I just don’t think this is like great for me, I don’t want to do it. I want to go home, like I can’t take the pressure of it.

    MNG Main Space

    Exhibition Runs: December 3, 2018 – January 11, 2019
    Reception: December 6, 2018 6 pm – 8 pm
    Main Mall at the Alberta College of Art + Design

    Through a multi-video and audio installation we present a model of voyeurism based on reality television. Quotes taken from The Inspection House (1791) by Jeremy Bentham are placed in conjunction with footage from the reality television series America’s Next Top Model (2003– ). The space is divided in two parts, that of external and internal space. While the external space presents the performative nature of reality television, theinternal space makes use of segue shots. These shots of contestants in-between anticipated events present a type of performance which embodies the feeling of being seen and not knowing. The work highlights the inherent dependency of the public image to surveillance and punishment.

    Caroline Araujo is a video artist who participates in rituals of self-care and escapism through re-enacting and altering the behaviour, language, and presentation of female pop singers and YouTubers. Born in Montreal, she currently lives in Calgary where she is a fourth-year student at the Alberta College of Art + Design.

    Alice Schoenberg is a Canadian video and performance artist in her fourth year at the Alberta College of Art + Design.  In her practice, she embodies exaggerated feminine personas that are intended to highlight the ineffective tools prescribed by contemporary feminism to challenge systemic patriarchy.

    Exhibition Runs: November 19 – December 14, 2018
    Reception: December 6, 2018, 6 pm – 8 pm
    in the Main Mall, at the Alberta College of Art + Design

    in·ter·lop·er noun. a person who becomes involved in a place or situation where they are not wanted or are considered not to belong.

    There is comfort in routine. There is security in the ritual of repeating an action so many times that you don’t remember why you started.

    in·ter·lop·er questions a routine of blending in. In the process of simultaneously concealing and revealing, I investigate the experience of feeling alienated in my own country. By painting, I perform a new ritual of reclamation; I mend the severed ties to my cultural history, despite the cost of comfort.

    Selina Martineau, born in Canmore, Alberta, creates paintings, installations, garments and performances that draw on popular culture and the history of marginalized communities to form a contemporary perspective of intersectional identity. Contrasting real and imaginary, humour and seriousness, Martineau’s constructed imagery examines relationships with familiar imagery and how identity is informed by society’s assumptions about race and gender.

      Reflecting personal stories of resilience, the Hear/d Residency exhibition, presented by the Alberta College of Art + Design Students’ Association (ACADSA), opens on Wednesday, November 28. The student art exhibition runs until Wednesday, December 12 at the Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD), with the reception taking place on Thursday, December 6 at 6 p.m.

      The goal of the Hear/d Residency program is to provide a safe space for students from different disciplines to create their own community of support while simultaneously de-stigmatizing mental illness within the extended ACAD community. In line with the residency’s theme of resilience, this semester’s exhibition is titled and as it continues. The title itself is representative of the group’s collective experience with navigating mental health in the post-secondary context. Alumni and Hear/d Mentor Rocio Graham outlines, “This residency encourages students to take risks by allowing their vulnerable yet resilient voices to be heard to inform and de-stigmatize mental health within their community.”

      The three-month artist residency functions as a peer support program, while also providing professional development opportunities for student mentors who facilitate the program. Over the course of the residency, student mentors facilitate weekly meetings, studio visits and a group critique which supports the participants and the projects being made. The residency concludes with a two-week long exhibition where members of the community can observe the collection of unique works crafted, helping the mission and message resonate.

      This innovative approach to mental health support is a one of a kind program which empowers students to form valuable peer to peer relationships. Fourth year photography student and Hear/d Mentor Keiran Foster explains her own experience as a participant, “I think the most impactful part of this program was getting to be a part of a group of creatives and artists who are collectively exploring mental health in a positive and encouraging environment through our own unique practices and art forms.”

      ACADSA is a visible and vocal student-run organization that represents a creative community of students. We promote health and well-being, provide professional growth opportunities and champion students’ interests.

    Reflecting personal stories of resilience, the Hear/d Residency exhibition, presented by the Alberta College of Art + Design Students’ Association (ACADSA), opens on Wednesday, November 28. The student art exhibition runs until Wednesday, December 12 at the Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD), with the reception taking place on Thursday, December 6 at 6 p.m.

    The goal of the Hear/d Residency program is to provide a safe space for students from different disciplines to create their own community of support while simultaneously de-stigmatizing mental illness within the extended ACAD community. In line with the residency’s theme of resilience, this semester’s exhibition is titled and as it continues. The title itself is representative of the group’s collective experience with navigating mental health in the post-secondary context. Alumni and Hear/d Mentor Rocio Graham outlines, “This residency encourages students to take risks by allowing their vulnerable yet resilient voices to be heard to inform and de-stigmatize mental health within their community.”

    The three-month artist residency functions as a peer support program, while also providing professional development opportunities for student mentors who facilitate the program. Over the course of the residency, student mentors facilitate weekly meetings, studio visits and a group critique which supports the participants and the projects being made. The residency concludes with a two-week long exhibition where members of the community can observe the collection of unique works crafted, helping the mission and message resonate.

    This innovative approach to mental health support is a one of a kind program which empowers students to form valuable peer to peer relationships. Fourth year photography student and Hear/d Mentor Keiran Foster explains her own experience as a participant, “I think the most impactful part of this program was getting to be a part of a group of creatives and artists who are collectively exploring mental health in a positive and encouraging environment through our own unique practices and art forms.”

    ACADSA is a visible and vocal student-run organization that represents a creative community of students. We promote health and well-being, provide professional growth opportunities and champion students’ interests.

    ACAD Students’ Association is seeking applications for the Winter Hear/d Residency program. 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 at the Alberta College of Art + Design 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.

    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)

    ACAD Students’ Association is seeking applications for the Winter Hear/d Residency program. 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 at the Alberta College of Art + Design 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.

    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)
