With the Faculty of Fine Arts’ new Visual Collections Repository (VCR) reaching its final construction phase in EV 3.703, artists and curators have charged ahead with a series of dynamic residencies in the new space.
VCR – the newly combined home of the Digital Image and Slide Collection (DISC) and the Moving Image Resource Centre (MIRC) – is currently hosting artists Meredith Carruthers and Susannah Wesley, and film curator Ezra Winton.
Both residencies are part of the ongoing Faculty of Fine Arts residency program, facilitated by the Strategic Directions Concordia In Residence Appointment (CIRA).
“The idea of the residencies is that students can come to this new space and work alongside practicing artists and curators. They can learn from them, talk with them, or even help them out,” says Pamela Caussy, Supervisor of the VCR.
