Visual Arts Grad Exhibition Fundraiser
UBC’s AMS and AHVA Galleries present WEAREART, a collaborative show and fundraiser featuring works from Faculty, Staff, and Students from the Department of Art History, Visual Art, and Theory at UBC. WEAREART is a mixed media event centered on each artist’s interpretation of the grey monochrome. The exhibition and fundraiser will also display and sell protest posters and T-shirts, designed by 4th year BFA and BA visual arts students. The opening event will include a silent auction of all the works held at the AMS Gallery from 4-7pm, on Friday, November the 13th, followed by a show at the Gallery in Koerner Library from September 18th – 21st.
The use of the grey monochrome is inspired by the work of the group “greysquare.ca”, an organization dedicated to restoring public support for the arts and culture in British Columbia. This show takes place in the shadow of the announcement of devastating cuts to arts funding in B.C. The use of grey is meant to symbolize a future without art and culture – “a future we are working to avoid” (greysquare.ca).
Silent Auction: 4-7pm, Friday, November 13: The AMS Gallery is located in the main concourse of the Student Union Building (SUB), 6138 Student Union Boulevard, UBC.
Works on Display: Wednesday Nov. 18 to Saturday Nov. 21: the Gallery is located on the first floor of Koerner Library,
