January 5 – January 13, 2018

The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is kicking off 2018 with the next installment of the Intermission Series featuring the work of four upcoming local artists from UBC Okanagan’s Critical and Creative Studies Department.

The multi-disciplinary exhibition will feature Arden Boehm, Angela Gmeinweser, Reta Stevenson, and Carmen Winther. Taking an object-oriented perspective on all the things that construct the gallery experience, the exhibition will complicate the traditional relationships between the audience and the artwork. By shifting the experiential nature of the gallery, the exhibition will look at how the space influences the experience. The objects in the space are rendered non-utilitarian, familiar material processes become unrecognizable, and the viewer becomes an object among an assemblage of objects without hierarchy.

The Alternator will host an opening reception on January 5 from 7 to 9pm. The event is free and open to the public. The exhibition is on show at the Alternator from January 5-13
