For 125 years, beginning in 1887 as the Victoria School of Art and evolving into its current form as NSCAD University, this independent art school has been the visual arts engine of the region and, arguably, for Canada. As the first contemporary degree granting visual arts institution – initially with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, then a Masters programme – NSCAD has become a creative powerhouse that supports a wide array of studio production practices balanced with programmes that promote historical, critical and contextual analysis.

Opening Reception Thursday 14 March at 8 pm
To say that the paintings of Montreal based artist Pierre Dorion are Minimalist works only tells one side of the story; to say that they are objective Realist paintings also tells just one side. But they are both; they also are imbued with sentiments of loss, memory, presence, and an ambiguous unreality that actually is based on the artist’s own photographs.
Halifax-based interdisciplinary artist William Robinson employs video, performance, sculpture, drawing and other media to investigate the culture of sound and social architecture. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, having shown in New York, Bergen and Berlin, as well as in Toronto at Nuit Blanche and in Halifax at Nocturne. His practice is conceptually based, often rooted in intimate encounters and immediate experiences.
