ART NOW - Meryl McMaster 12:00pm Free

FRI, JAN 19, 2018 12:00 PM TO 12:50 PM
FREE, Bring a brown bag lunch

Visual artist Meryl McMaster will discuss her artistic practice as well as the works within her traveling solo exhibition “Confluence” first shown by Heather Anderson in 2016 at the Carleton University Art Gallery. The exhibition brings together photographic works from three bodies of work titled Ancestral (2008-10), In-Between Worlds (2010-15) and Wanderings (2015).

Meryl McMaster is an Ottawa-based artist and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the Ontario College of Art and Design University. Through her work McMaster explores the evolving self in distinct ways through portraiture and self-portraiture, incorporating projected light, sculpture and costume to question how we construct the complicated sense of who we are.

McMaster is the recipient of the REVEAL Indigenous Art Award, Charles Pachter Prize for Emerging Artists, the Canon Canada Prize, the Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship, the OCAD U Medal and was long listed for the 2016 Sobey Art Award.

ART NOW - Katie Bruce 12:00pm Free

WED, JAN 24, 2018 12:00 PM TO 12:50 PM
FREE, Bring a brown bag lunch

Katie Marie Bruce is an artist and educator, working primarily in printmaking, who recently relocated to Lethbridge from Toronto. She received her MFA from York University in 2015, where her thesis work examining empathy, "felt knowledge" was supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. She has presented her work across Canada, in exhibitions, residencies, and projects, and is presenting a new body of work for 'surface to surface,' a two person exhibition with Christie Kirchner at Alberta Printmakers Gallery in Calgary, on January 5th, 2018. Katie’s art is held by many private collections across Canada and the United States, as well as in the permanent collection of the Schulich School of Business in Toronto Ontario. Over the past two years, Katie has found herself preoccupied with two things: empathy and printmaking. Her contribution toThis Is Water: Emerging Practices in Contemporary Art presented at the SAAG in 2015 was the beginning of an internal shift, expressed in her practice as more personal, emotive projects. Considering folds, bodies, and anxiety, Katie will be sharing her most recent print-trajectories and some of the research (written and felt) that she has drawn on.

Out of Our Skins

The adoption of 3D imaging techniques into fine art practice redefines conventional typological distinctions, including image and object categories, and proposes new methods of composition and aggregation. How do the instrumental tools of technologized sensing inflect knowledge production? Archaeological imaging practices, in this case photogrammetry, have been brought into the apparatus of art practice producing technical objects with a distinct and contingent temporality that operates between the mnemonic and the affective. What might be produced and deduced from accidental outcomes of the 3D process and through provocative misapplications?

Data objects and algorithmic cultures produce entirely new paradigms for artists, dissolving conventional disciplinary boundaries, producing temporal slippages and material problems. If digitised ‘pre-historical’ objects take on new lives, economies and qualities, and post-historic (contemporary) informatics cultures produce new materialities and collectivities, then my research seeks to articulate the interplay between the forensic practices of archaeologists and the pathologised spaces, weaponised imaging and vernacular modelling of gaming communities.

Louisa Minkin is an artist based in London, UK. Her work includes collaborations with Francis Summers as LM/FS, and with Ian Dawson, Andrew Jones and Marta Diaz-Guardamino on ‘Making a mark: imagery and process in the British and Irish Neolithic’, the first holistic analysis of decorated artefacts from the British and Irish Neolithic period.

Recent work has been included in events at Ashkal Alwan, Beirut; ICA, London; Modern Art Oxford; and CalArts, USA. She has exhibited at the Ritsurin Gardens, Japan; The British Library, London; Foxy Production, New York; LLS 387, Antwerp. Minkin studied at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art and New College, University of Oxford, and at The Royal College of Art (MA Painting). Awards include an Abbey Fellowship in Painting at The British School at Rome and the Art Foundation Fellowship in Painting.

She is Course Leader for MA Fine Art at Central Saint Martins .

While on-campus, Louisa Minkin also speaks in the Women’s Scholars Speaker Series on January 24, 2018 at 3 pm in Andy’s Place (AH100). The title of this talk: Annihilation Event.
