The Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery is pleased to present SUPERMOON, an exhibition of work by the 2014 graduates of the University of British Columbia Department of Art History, Visual Art, & Theory’s two-year Master of Fine Arts program. The artists represented examine the practice of making art through the shared and often conflicted relationship it has with its reception with the public. As such the context in which the work is made and subsequently displayed is informed by each artist’s individual life and experience. As a diverse group of artists they collectively represent a shared interest in changing perceptions about what art is and does. 

Fabiola Carranza makes photographs, videos, sculptures, paintings and drawings that examine visual, cultural and personal phenomena. Her experimentation with materials is at once playful and imbued with art-historical frameworks. Her work aims to tease out humour and pathos from her affiliation to spaces, her familial history and her relationship to art.

Todd Evanger investigates boundaries of the body and the hegemonies that are embedded in rural histories, an inquiry which he conducts through video and print media, ancestral archival material and iconography that characterizes the Canadian prairies.  

Marie Horstead, who works primarily with textiles, draws from a rich female-centric history and explores the mythological intersections between love, desire and sorority.

Guadalupe Martinez fosters interactions that pay attention to the specificity of place using found materials with the intention to transcend the (apparent) static nature of sculpture. Embodiment is the political and lyrical potential to interrogate and reorganize meaning.

Through material experimentation, Kate Moss explores the expressive potential of writing, colour and rhythm. In her work, things, objects, materials and moments harmonize; working in conversation, they begin to perform.

Setareh Yasan investigates the dialogue between the world of the studio space where she actively creates and the outside world. Her process of exploring these worlds relies on the accumulation of material knowledge, which is gathered in the studio through the process of making, and of immaterial knowledge, which is mustered through the experience of living in the world.

The exhibition is presented with support from the Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory at the University of British Columbia.
