This exhibition serves as an introduction to the work of the five faculties in the Visual Art Program at the School for Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University. While our practices cover a range of media and interests we share the conviction that our work as artists is fundamental to our teaching. These few works chronicle paths of inquiry through materials, research, theory and practical experience. Artwork is a conduit between teacher and student, not least because the struggle which the student experiences in making an artwork, is never, in fact overcome. Rather, art is itself the preservation of this struggle. We see the Audain Gallery as one aspect of a learning environment, for our students, ourselves, and the community near and far.

Exhibition dates: September 7 - September 26
Hours: Tuesday - Saturday 12 - 6 pm and during Open House:

About the Audain Gallery

Named in honour of arts supporter Michael Audain, the Audain Gallery will serve as a vital aspect of the Visual Arts program at Simon Fraser University's School for the Contemporary Arts, particularly in relation to the School's pedagogical practices, its emphasis on critical thinking, and its engagement with international contemporary art practices.

The Audain Gallery's mission is to advance the aesthetic and discursive production and presentation of contemporary visual art in Vancouver and internationally through a responsive program of exhibitions in a flexible project space and in support of an engaged pedagogy of art within the university and in the public sphere. The Gallery's mission will be primarily fulfilled through The Audain Visual Artist in Residence Program and SFU student exhibitions. The Audain Gallery is curated by Sabine Bitter and is part of the SFU Woodward's Cultural Unit.
