Marking ten years since the Artist in Residence program at Concordia Gallery began, Turning Lessons: Models of Artist Residency Projects features works made or conceived during residencies exhibited alongside student work that the artist inspired.
Exhibition dates will be 21 March – 4 May 2024 at Concordia Gallery.
The exhibition will focus on the ways in which art is a demonstration of exchange with the world. It will look at a specific model of how artists can relate to and explain our understanding of the world and how students interact with those ideas. Artist collaborations will be revisited including those with Andrew Burns, Mitch Cairns, Displeasing the Masses, Mikala Dwyer, Agatha Gothe-Snape, Nathan Hawkes, Deborah Kelly, Claudia Nicholson, Heather Peak and Ivan Morison, Tom Polo, Jason Phu, Stuart Ringholt, Jensen Tjhung, Garry Trinh, and Anne Zahalka
A book will be printed to accompany the exhibition, with each selected project featuring the use of archival materials, communications, installation images, source materials, contemporaneous candid photography, and photography of artworks that were produced while in residence. Essays included reflect on the experience from an artist’s perspective, explore models of thinking in artistic practice and student learning, and look to the future potential of Artist Residencies in general.
