Incidental Folds

Incidental Folds exhibition invite

Exhibition: May 21–June 28, 2020
Visit online at the Incidental Folds exhibition

This exhibition celebrates the fruits of a year of self-directed studio and academic research by ten undergraduate senior level printmaking students, and three first-year graduate students in the Department of Art and Design, University of Alberta.

Incidental Folds features a range of printmaking media including collagraph, etching, silkscreen, lithography, as well mixed-media works. With their print projects and over a series of seminars students explored a wide range of themes including identity, body, home, mapping and place. Working closely together in the U of A print studios allowed them to discover productive linkages and folds within their practices which are celebrated in this exhibition.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the closure of the print studios and the SNAP Gallery, the students had to creatively adapt and adjust not only their individual projects but also the form of their group exhibition. Although nothing replaces the experience of being able to be with artwork in person, these students have worked together to create a virtual exhibition which is a testimony both to their commitment and dedication to the process of 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.


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