Formed is a series of sculptures that explore the process of translating a formal system of composition into a moving meditation. The sculptures are reflections on how Selene Huff's body moves through space and interacts with other physical entities.

Her process of making is guided by formal principles based on human themes of existence. Through the process of abstraction and simplification, individual details become lost or distorted, allowing space for the viewer to connect to the work or through the act of superimposing their own meaningful experiences over the traces that she has left behind.

This is the final visual presentation for the degree of Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture.

Littoral Zone by Daniel Evans

Littoral exhibition invite

Exhibition: September 1–25, 2020

Admission is free and by appointment only. Contact Joshua Wade at 780-492-2081 or jwade1@ualberta.ca to book an appointment.

In an increasingly data-driven and algorithmically automated world, a clearly delineated border between physical and virtual existence is at best naive; at worst a dangerous fabrication. Search histories, social media, purchases, medical records, location history, and other forms of commodified information all converge to create externalized profiles beyond the control of their originators, that nonetheless have tangible impact on experiences in the physical world.

Littoral is a speculative world-ing; a re-imagining of data visualization through the lens of folklore. Drawing upon selkie folktales as an allegorical lens, the work offers a space to explore the mediation between physical and digital worlds, and to interrogate the latent dynamics of power in an increasingly algorithmically driven existence.

This is the final visual presentation for the degree of Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking.

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.
