New group of work by UBC students goes on display at Alternator gallery
The next instalment of an exhibition featuring selected works by three University of British Columbia visual arts students starts today at Kelowna’s Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art.
Works in the Intermission Series The Pasture focus on creative exploration and experimentation but, perhaps unexpectedly, result in an understated, subtle and formally balanced visual experience.
Moozhan Ahmadzadegan’s work considers the boundaries of traditional painting, while Patricia Leinemann examines her process, which is filled with uncertainty and curiosity. Kara Sikora’s work investigates prevailing views of industrial materials, and the way context and process can complicate our understanding of matter. These artists were selected for the esthetically formal nature of their work and the underlying exploration of experimental processes.
The Alternator will host an opening reception for The Pasture from 7 to 9 p.m. tonight. The event is free and open to the public. The Pasture is on show at the Alternator to Oct. 21.
Intermission is a joint initiative between the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art and students of the Critical and Creative Studies Department at UBC Okanagan. It is intended to be a “show between shows” at the Alternator to assist local art students gain practical work experience in a professional exhibition environment.
