The Rebel Yells: Dress and Political Re-dress in Contemporary Indigenous Art traces the influence of Shelley Niro's The Rebel (1987) through successive generations of artists. In homage, works by eleven artists from across Canada are assembled, opening discussion around dress, representation, self-definition, and their accompanying politics in new and revitalized ways.
Speaking of Photography is an ongoing, annual series of public lectures on the history, theory, and practice of photography, organized by the Department of Art History. Since 2007-08 we have welcomed photographic scholars from across Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom. The series is made possible by the generosity of an anonymous donor, with additional support from the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art; the Concordia University Research Chair in Art History; members of the Art History Graduate Students Association; the Ethnocultural Art Histories Research Groug (EAHR); Ciel Variable magazine; Château Versailles Hotel; and other interested sponsors.
The FOFA Gallery is pleased to present a dynamic collection of works as part of Concordia University’s Faculty of Fine Arts Graduating Students Exhibition. The exhibition moves through both the VAV and FOFA Gallery spaces and was juried and shaped to reflect the strength and diversity of practice at the Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral levels. Concordia’s Faculty of Fine arts is recognized nationally and internationally for its artistic and academic excellence, driven by a distinguished faculty and demonstrated by the outstanding works produced by its graduating students. This year is no exception. The “Grad Show” will feature media art, installation, painting, photography, ceramics and sculpture reflecting a range of conceptual investigations, sometimes funny, at times uncanny, aesthetically captivating and poetically poignant.
