Passages: Narratives of Identity and Space
Trinity Western University Graduating Art class

March 15 - April 29, 2017

From the rhythm and patterns of our social behaviours, to the movements of communities and social groups, exhibition examines societal and cultural practices concentrating on perception and behaviour. The way we recognize patterns and how we perceive meaningful information is directly linked to our cultural environment and social identification. The universal human tendency to search for identity and space is often correlated to how we perceive cultural symbols, traditional and conventional patterns.

While investigating the occupation of space and place - in terms of geography, materiality, built environments, social institutions, the body and ideological positions - each artist inquires after the behaviours that cause us to identify with certain patterns and relations. These artistic practices are used to explore the narratives of the lived experience.

Wednesday January 18 - Tuesday February 28, 2017

This winter art exhibition was put together by several artists from the Semiahmoo First Nation. Each piece has a unique story to tell, and weave together to tell of a deep connection to place. The show explores changes to place over time, current struggles and respects ancient stories.
