    The MNG LRT Space Presents:
    Alec Brilling – Δt

    Exhibition Runs: April 2 – 27, 2018
    Reception: April 5, 2018 6 pm – 8 pm
    Main Mall, at the Alberta College of Art and Design

    Join us Thursday in the ACAD Main Mall for the opening reception from 6 – 8 pm! A bar will be on site!

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    Designed environments made to increase the flow of information often are created in a manner that promote the information seen fit by those who have designed them while inhibiting the impressions of actions by those who inhabit them. The motives of these spaces, with rigid surfaces made to be wiped clean, should be questioned and how the lasting presence can be incorporated into them. Δt explores how the nonlinear memory of a space can be accessed as well as overwritten by the presence of those passing by and how that presence can be made known to others.

    Alec Brilling is a student at the Alberta College of Art + Design studying media arts. His practice explores perception and environments, how spaces are occupied and the actions that take place within them. Often making use of sound and light, his works focus on the active presence of participants.

  • Collin Brown – Further Reductions (Reception)

    The MNG Main Space Presents:
    Collin Brown – Further Reductions

    Exhibition Runs: April 2 – 13, 2018
    Reception: April 5, 2018 6 pm – 8 pm
    Main Mall at the Alberta College of Art + Design

    Join us Thursday in the ACAD Main Mall for the opening reception from 6 – 8 pm! A bar will be on site!

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    My research and practice are concerned with problems of representation related to disparities between the map and the territory. The map, being an abstraction of site will never contain full fidelity to that which it represents. Further Reductions is an exhibition of sculptures that involve a speculative modeling of space, representations that engender thought concerning dissonance between representation and reality.

    Collin is an undergraduate in his final year at the Alberta College of Art + Design, he is a nominee for the BMO 1st Art! Prize, and ACAD Board of Governors Graduating Student Award in Sculpture. His studio- based practice is informed by process and material investigations that negotiate ways of looking.

  • Amy Hein – Gather. Preserve. Repeat. (Reception)
    6:00 pm-8:00 pm

    Alberta University of the Arts, Main Mall, 1407 14 Ave NW, Calgary, AB T2N 4R3, Canada

    Alberta University of the Arts, Main Mall, 1407 14 Ave NW, Calgary, AB T2N 4R3, Canada

    MNG - Amy Hein - Gather Preserve Repeat
    The MNG Main Space Presents: Amy Hein – Gather. Preserve. Repeat. 
    Exhibition Runs: April 16 – 27, 2018
    Reception: April 26, 2018 6 pm – 8 pm
    Main Mall at the Alberta College of Art + Design

    Gather. Preserve. Repeat. reflects on the cellar spaces and basements of old homes, made for storing foods and preparing for habitation. It is a place meant for safety, family, and storage. In this body of work, jarred natural dyes represent the preserved foods in times of hardship and the memories made from making jarred goods. Painting with natural dyes is a way I disperse memory over a surface and bring attention to the water from the land by using collected snow and rainwater. The emphasis of food and place, which reoccurs through much of my work, preserves the memory of home and my Aboriginal heritage.

    Amy Hein is a graduate from Sheridan College in Ontario and a forth year Drawing student at ACAD graduating May 2018. She is from a small town in Central Ontario called Omemee. Amy is an active distance runner, children’s art instructor, and illustrator of the children’s story, A Forever Home.
