Opening Reception 5 tp 7 pm, November 16th. Exhibition runs November 16 to December 3, 2011
The Axis of Light is a joint exhibition of work by photography students from Visual Art + Material Practice, Emily Carr University of Art and Design and visual art students from the Department of Art History, Visual Art & Theory, University of British Columbia.
This exhibition brings together works and ideas about “what photography is today” by visual art and photography students at introductory, intermediate and advanced levels from both institutions.
The title, Axis of Light, suggests the array of directions – pedagogical, technical and conceptual – in which each class develops explorations of the many possibilities of that elusive aspect common to all our artistic concerns: light.
Both digital and analogue works are presented here at a time when photography is undergoing great changes. Our goal is to open a bridge for discussion and exchange and, as importantly, for meeting and encounters.
Sandra Semchuk, Manuel Pina and Barrie Jones
