MFA student Myken Mcdowell has a solo show in Calgary this weekend where she will be exhibiting her beautiful photo polymer prints and videos.
The exhibition Tagged is a selection of artworks made by Marilène Oliver since 2003 as well as a series of new works made since her appointment at the University of Alberta in Summer 2016. Included in the exhibition are: Family Portrait 2003, a series of print based sculptures made using MR scans of the artist’s family; Confusão 2011-2013, a series of artworks based on anonymized CT data about digital privilege and Tagged, Oliver’s latest works. Tagged addresses the constant and exhausting need to manage and find meaning in an endless and ever increasing stream of emails/tweets/posts we face in the Digital Age. For this project, Oliver is working with the metaphor of medical radiographic fluorescent tracers that ‘tag’ or highlight proteins in the body.
Daniel Evans, one of our new graduate students has an exhibition opening at Harcourt House on the 5th October from 7-10pm.
Resonant Progression by Sculpture/Art fundamentals instructor Roy Mills, has been added to Edmonton’s Public Art Collection and installed in Terwillegar Park.

“GIVE UP AND PARTY” // Main Gallery, SNAP Gallery 10123 121 Street, Edmonton AB.
Exhibitions run Aug 11 – Sept 9.
How do we respond to a global crisis of our own making? In GIVE UP AND PARTY, Morgan Wedderspoon brings together found objects and borrowed text to inquire into the relationship between the human subject and the changing climate in a time of anthropogenic global warming. Drawing from a list of eight responses to crisis from Margaret Atwood’s Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth, Wedderspoon uses chance operations and assemblage to create a suite of prints and a bookwork of collage poetry. This project is supported by the Edmonton Arts Council and the City of Edmonton.
