Emergence features the works of nine artists who have completed their studies at UBC Okanagan’s BFA and BMS programs in 2022. Exemplifying various approaches to research, studio practice and asserts an active hands-on attitude while creating their work. This exhibition includes painting, drawing, sculptural installations, printmaking, participatory film and immersive sound installation.
For the most part, the works in the exhibition were hand-made and as such carry strong associative elements. The works communicate ideas based on our human experience and existence, our apprehension of physical and psychological spaces. Combined with the conceptual strategies used by these artists, their approaches highlight the materiality of an art object.
