Making Out

The Emily Car Institute for Art and Design in Vancouver hosts Making Out, an exhibition of work from architects/designers who demonstrate innovative forms of practice. They treat the juggling act between paying bills and achieving creative satisfaction as a creative process of its own. Conceived by students at the UBC School of Architecture and the Emily Carr Institute, the exhibition addresses issues such as how to further explore individual design agendas while also meeting the demands of architectural practice. Nine design teams/architects from Vancouver, Seattle and Portland are featured, and the exhibition will focus on the creative production of the people involved and their practices through a mixture of exhibition materials and installations. Designers of note include Forsythe + MacAllen Design Associates, Pechet and Robb, Lead Pencil Studio and Omer Arbel. The exhibition is presented by Trace, the journal of the UBC School of Architecture, and will be held in the Concourse Gallery of the Emily Car Institute from October 7-16, 2004.
