Entitled Arrivals and Departures, this year-end show runs from April 26 to May 7, 2010 at the FOFA Gallery at Concordia University in Montreal. An umbrella exhibition that brings together artists from the three programs within Concordia University’s Design and Computation Arts Department, it is entirely produced and curated by students in the BFA in Design program for the purpose of connecting Concordia’s emerging pool of talent to new audiences. The selected works demonstrate intensive development and innovative practices that incorporate industrial, graphic, interactive, and theoretical design, while exploring contemporary issues in the field. Themes of sustainability, social responsibility, and ethical production are common currents in the show, highlighting Concordia University’s unique and unparalleled position as a leader in conceptual and environmental design.
The exhibition reflects the evolving nature of design as a cross-disciplinary field of research and practice through a series of community-oriented programs and events.
The exhibition opening takes place from 5:00pm to 9:00pm on Friday, April 30, 2010.
