Althea Thauberger

Monday February 11, 2008

In conjunction with Exponential Future, currently on view at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, artist Althea Thauberger will discuss and invite questions about the works included in the exhibition—a video installation called Zivildienst ≠ Kunstprojekt (Social Service ≠ Art Project) and the large scale photo mural The Art of Seeing Without Being Seen, installed at the Walter C. Koerner Library at UBC.

Althea Thauberger’s photographs, films, videos, and performances invite reflection on self-definition, alienation, community and coercion within ‘natural’ worlds, and actual or pretend social/ political structures. Sometimes existing in the public domain, Thauberger’s works often involve short and long term collaborations with their subjects. Thauberger earned a BFA in photography at Concordia University in 2000, and a MFA in studio art at the University of Victoria in 2002. Since then, her work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions in North America, Europe and Asia.

Thauberger currently lives and works in Vancouver and Berlin.

This event is free and is open to the public. All are welcome.

Presented by the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery and UBC Library.
