    Showcasing personal stories of resilience, the Hear/d Residency art exhibition, presented by the Alberta University of the Arts Students’ Association (formerly the Alberta College of Art & Design), opens on Wednesday, April 3. The student art exhibition runs until Wednesday, April 17 in the main mall of the Alberta University of the Arts (AUArts), with the reception taking place on Thursday, April 11 at 6 p.m.

    The Hear/d Residency program is a one of a kind program, founded by the AUArts Students’ Association in an effort to support student mental health in an creative and innovative manner. This unique program provides a safe space for students from different disciplines within the university to talk about their lived experience and create artwork reflecting their mental health, which consequently builds comradery and a community of support. The 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 3-month 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 semester’s exhibition is titled Métamorphe, which is representative of the group’s collective experience with navigating mental health in the post-secondary context. Two time participant and current Hear/d Mentor Winona Julian outlines, “after initially participating in the Hear/d Residency, I felt liberated and unashamed in regards to my mental health issues. After participating a second time, my feelings towards destigmatizing mental health were only confirmed further. I strongly believe in the importance of this residency, especially within our school community.”

    While the program promotes the de-stigmatization of mental health on campus, it simultaneously supports students in their personal and professional development. Hear/d Mentor Syl Reddick explains their own experience as a participant, “my piece in the 2017 Fall Hear/d Residency was an embroidered comic illustrating the experience of dissociation in a bathroom. I was the only first year in my residency and I felt the need to push myself conceptually and materially in order to create work I was proud of. I learned a lot about my own practice from the Hear/d residency and now I want to pass that vital experience on to others.”

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

This unique program provides a safe space for students from different disciplines within the university to talk about their lived experience and create artwork reflecting their mental health, which consequently builds comradery and a community of support. The 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 3-month 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 semester’s exhibition is titled Métamorphe, which is representative of the group’s collective experience with navigating mental health in the post-secondary context. Two time participant and current Hear/d Mentor Winona Julian outlines, “after initially participating in the Hear/d Residency, I felt liberated and unashamed in regards to my mental health issues. After participating a second time, my feelings towards destigmatizing mental health were only confirmed further. I strongly believe in the importance of this residency, especially within our school community.”

    While the program promotes the de-stigmatization of mental health on campus, it simultaneously supports students in their personal and professional development. Hear/d Mentor Syl Reddick explains their own experience as a participant, “my piece in the 2017 Fall Hear/d Residency was an embroidered comic illustrating the experience of dissociation in a bathroom. I was the only first year in my residency and I felt the need to push myself conceptually and materially in order to create work I was proud of. I learned a lot about my own practice from the Hear/d residency and now I want to pass that vital experience on to others.”

    The Marion Nicoll Gallery (MNG) Main Space presents:

    Alice Schoenberg, Ana Villanueva, Caroline Araujo, Katelyn Liakos, Olivia Kotani, Ursula Sokol, Winona Julian – Bad Visions from Cyberspace

    Exhibition Runs:  April 8 – 19, 2019

    Reception: April 11, 2019 6 pm – 8 pm Main Mall at the Alberta University of the Arts (formerly the Alberta College of Art + Design)

    Bad Visions from Cyberspace is a group show of experimental video art curated by Winona Julian. It explores contemporary issues and visual memes of everyday cyber culture. This exhibition brings together a group of emerging artists, all of whom are members of a generation where an understanding of new media is innate. These artists share a fascination with the repurposing of cultural themes and ideology. The resulting video work surveys the bizarre and intuitive relationships between ideology and modern media. Although these video works pull from many different cultural references, they emerge through the creative process as new, hybridized, but truly original entities unto themselves. The often humorous scenes parallel those disseminated online through social media and streaming services in order to tap into the collective subconscious of a digital generation. The result is an image-based critical self-awareness, that confronts, interrogates, and and explores with the audience these expressive, and enigmatic new cultural artefacts.

    Winona Julian is an emerging artist based in Calgary who is completing her BFA atAlberta University of the Arts with a major in Media Arts. Her artwork functions as a parallel representation of normalized online behaviours. Through performance and video, she is able to use the same patterns that are commonly linked with social media, such as camera angles, filters, distorted effects, and the implication of an ever present audience to examine the relationship between her simulated online self and her non-simulated self.

    Ana Villanueva – My next door neighbour lives in a little house with weird edges

    Exhibition Runs: March 18 – April 19, 2019

    Reception: April 11, 2019 6 pm – 8 pm Main Mall at the Alberta University of the Arts (formerly the Alberta College of Art + Design)

    Two neighbours reside here.
    One knows too much about the other.
    And other wants to borrow a whisk.
    The door stands in the way of these beings.
    Because of this, they leave letters for each other.
    They sometimes make love this way.
    They know each other through words, symbols and only that.
    Letters and symbols are powerful entities in relation to architectural proximity and its effect on interpersonal relationships amongst creatures, mostly human.
    The words hold the spaces together.
    The doors within create an understanding of the other.

    Ana Villanueva is a Mexican-Canadian multidisciplinary artist currently based in Calgary, Alberta. She creates narratives through the utilization of both symbols and sounds in relation to the dynamics that happen between her immigrant identity, personal stories, and the domestic space. She is currently completing her BFA at the Alberta University of the Arts, majoring in media arts.

    Daniel Beanmash_Image_sm

    WHEN: April 23 – May 3, 2019

    WHERE: Marion Nicoll Gallery (MNG), Main Space

    Daniel Beanmash’s El Barrio is an installation exploring the political realities of life in Nicaragua. El Barrio is an interior space constructed to resemble aspects of the artist’s familial home in Managua, Nicaragua. All of the objects within the installation—old furniture, rocking chairs, a television set, small Christian icons, etc.—have been covered in layers of graffiti. Displayed on the television is footage from the 2018 protests in Nicaragua that left at least 317 dead, paired with the song Me Voy Pa’l Pueblo (I’m Going Into Town) by Trio Los Panchos. The protests began in April 2018 as a response to President Daniel Ortega’s social security reforms that proposed a decrease in pension payments and an increase in taxes, but have since become widespread demonstrations calling for the resignation of Ortega. – Declan Hoy 2019

    Daniel Beanmash’s El Barrio is an installation exploring the political realities of life in Nicaragua. El Barrio is an interior space constructed to resemble aspects of the artist’s familial home in Managua, Nicaragua. All of the objects within the installation—old furniture, rocking chairs, a television set, small Christian icons, etc.—have been covered in layers of graffiti. Displayed on the television is footage from the 2018 protests in Nicaragua that left at least 317 dead, paired with the song Me Voy Pa’l Pueblo (I’m Going Into Town) by Trio Los Panchos. The protests began in April 2018 as a response to President Daniel Ortega’s social security reforms that proposed a decrease in pension payments and an increase in taxes, but have since become widespread demonstrations calling for the resignation of Ortega. – Declan Hoy 2019

    sec·ond sight [noun]—the power of discerning what is not visible to the physical eye.
    To gain the ability of second sight an individual must meet the following conditions:
    • 1) They must be actively aware of distinct socioeconomic factors in place that grant advantage to certain dominant groups while simultaneously alienating those at its margins.
    • 2) They must understand and embrace the position as the “other” and use their differences to challenge the status quo.
    • 3) They must manipulate their discerning power to strategically topple current systems of oppression that suppress marginalized communities.

    Chelsea Yang-Smith is a visual artist and photographer currently based in Calgary, Alberta. Using analogue photography, Yang-Smith’s body of work, second-sight, examines the segregation of racially ambiguous individuals from their contemporaries. Her current research investigates the parallels between intersectional feminism and intimacy within the digital landscape.

    Yang-Smith holds a Bachelor of Design in Photography from the Alberta University of the Arts (2016) and is a former Photography Practicum of the Banff Centre for Arts + Creativity (2017).
