The Faculty of Fine Arts is opening its doors with the sixth edition of Spring Shows, a series of public displays highlighting the exceptional accomplishments of undergraduate and graduate students.

Over 25 events and exhibitions will be staged by students in all nine of Concordia's fine arts departments. Shows launch in early March and run throughout the season with a finale in mid-June featuring work by graduating students.

“The Faculty of Fine Arts never stops,” says Rebecca Duclos, dean of the faculty. “Every day, every evening, students are in the studio, in the shops, in the library, in rehearsal, in the editing suite, in the schools, in the community, out on placements — they are continually immersed in their rich investigations.

“End-of-year events give us a peek into these complex worlds as the students share their work and their research with a public audience,” she says. “They are extraordinarily agile and translational thinkers — and it shows in what they choose to show us.”

The nine departments in the Faculty of Fine Arts are: Art EducationArt History, Contemporary Dance, Creative Arts TherapiesDesign and Computation Arts, Music, Studio Arts, Theatre and the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema.
