“There are 25 students involved, though some have more than one work,” said fourth year student Amy Parks, who  is co-curating the exhibition with fellow fourth year student Ildiko Barraclough as part of their  BFA museum curating program.
“They went through a jury panel which examined many submissions,” Parks continued.

“We wanted works a that really explore  the serious issues in the world,” added Barraclough.
 “We have some really exemplary local artists.

We have  some indigenous  artists and some artists expressing the hybrid of the Japanese Canadian experience,” she continued.

The submissions not only include works from U of L art students, but other departments  as well including management students.

“We have a really diverse group of artists and diverse mediums,” Parks said.

The exhibition includes photography, painting, print, sculpture and performance exploring  the transient nature of life in its moments of elation, anguish, banality and how they affect our lives.
The opening reception is 7-9 p.m., Friday, March 3. The exhibition runs March 3-17
