LRC TIp of the Week: I HAVE A VISION!

Article *
Knowing what is important to you (what you value the most, or your vision for you) can make a huge difference in your attitude and choices. When you are aware of how choices you make can support or thwart your efforts to move toward what is important to you, choices come easily. When you consistently choose what pulls you closer to what you value the most, you are less stressed and anxious, because you more consistently act in accordance with your own best interest! I have a vision. Do You?

Perspectives Gallery Opening

Article *
Perspectives Gallery (Room 299) is excited to announce its first exhibition of an exciting year of programming, BIRTHE PIONTEK: LYING STILL, is now on view. A little bit about the artist:

Birthe Piontek is a visual artist living in Vancouver BC, Canada.

Originally from Germany, she moved to Canada in 2005 after receiving her MFA from the University of Essen in Communication Design and Photography.

Birthe describes her photography as an exploration of the individual and is interested in the concept of Self. Her main focus is portrait photography but she also utilizes other art forms like installation and collage to investigate the essence of portraiture and to what degree identity can be visualized.

Her work has been exhibited internationally, in both solo and group shows, and is featured in many private and public collections such as the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago and the Museum of Applied Arts in Gera, Germany.

Birthe’s project The Idea of North won the Critical Mass Book Award 2009, and was published as a monograph in 2011. She was nominated for the AIMIA AGO Award 2014, and her recent project Lying Still was shown during the Capture Photo Festival in Vancouver in spring 2015.

Her work has appeared in a number of international publications like The New York Times Magazine, Le Monde, Wired and The New Yorker among others.
