Maya Jain, third-year design student has been participating in CUCCR’s artist residency Living Things with original designs made from used clothing.
A new sense of care is given to the physical as Living Things reconsiders the relationship between the artist and their chosen materials. Living Things is the culmination of a three-month-long artist residency created in collaboration between the VAV Gallery and Concordia’s Center for Creative Reuse (CUCCR). Eight undergraduate Fine Arts students were selected to create works that consider life-after-art, giving old materials a new raison d’être, with objects primarily sourced from Concordia University’s waste stream.
In celebration of the Concordia University Centre for Creative Reuse (CUCCR)’s second year of operation, CUCCR and the VAV Gallery will be hosting the vernissage on Monday, March 25th from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The exhibition runs until March 29th.
VAV Gallery, 1395 Rene Levesque W.
