(IM)MATERIAL by Kimberley McCollum

Exhibition: January 21–February 8, 2020
Reception: Thursday, January 23, 2020 from 7pm to 10pm

The abstract concept of the grid is everywhere. It categorizes, measures and divides. This series of painted and woven works considers the grid as a connection between ancient weaving techniques and modern technology. Kimberley McCollum visually examines the relationships between digital and analog, old and new, the hand and the machine. This exhibition is the final visual presentation for the degree of Master of Fine Arts in Painting.

Admission is free.

About FAB Gallery

Since 1987, the Fine Arts Building Galley has presented art and design exhibitions that benefit the University of Alberta, Edmonton, the Province, and beyond. These exhibitions feature work by students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, faculty and staff, as well as by contemporary and historical artists with national and international reputations. FAB Gallery exhibitions—featuring both in-house curated exhibitions as well travelling exhibitions organized by other galleries and academic centres—attract approximately 13,000 guests a year to the Department of Art & Design.

The gallery is a valuable teaching resource, providing many Department of Art & Design students with their first opportunities to present their work publicly. Public presentation of work prepares students for involvement in the professional art and design community and increases students’ awareness of the dialogue that accompanies the public presentation of their works. As the most public face of the Department of Art & Design, the Fine Arts Building Gallery provides Edmonton and the wider community with an aesthetically enriching and intellectually engaging resource in the visual arts.

The FAB Gallery receives financial support from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Alberta Community Development.
