“These awards celebrate one of our core missions,” she said, going on to note that many of Concordia’s Strategic Directions are directly linked to teaching.

Opening of the 3rd Global Print 2017
On Tuesday, August 1, at 17:00, the Côa Museum inaugurates the 3rd Global Print 2017: "GLOBAL PRINT, GLOBAL ART, COMMUNICATION AND ... WHAT ELSE?", within the the International Print Douro Biennial, which will be on exhibition until September 30.

"The exhibition “3rd Global Print 2017”, inaugurated this year, offers visitors a collection of 543 artists from 67 countries from all the continents. Prints by renowned artists, professors, but also by many young graduates and students, are exhibited together in various collective exhibitions, emphasizing, cultural diversity, technical diversity, virtuosity and creative innovation, but above all else, the richness and excellence of communication through art, which is the true purpose of its existence and of the DOURO BIENNIAL.

Assuming the responsibility of being the unique Biennial of graphic work of the country, its evolution since its origin in 2001 placed it on an unimaginable level today, abreast of the most important biennials in the world. To prove this, we highlight the exhibition tribute to world-renowned artists such as Antoni Tàpies, Paula Rego, Vieira da Silva, Octave Landuyt, Gil Teixeira Lopes, Nadir Afonso, David de Almeida, Bartolomeu dos Santos, Júlio Pomar and others, but also by the breadth and internationality reached.

The partnership with the Côa Museum also proves the scale of this project, transforming the Douro into a true world capital of prehistoric engraving and contemporary printmaking."

From September 3 to October 16, the Stewart Hall Art Gallery is pleased to present the works of 27 artists participating in the Xylon hors normes exhibition. In 2014 Xylon-Québec invited artists from all mediums to submit projects showcasing unconventional uses of relief printing. Joining the 24 selected artists are the three accomplished guest artists known for their practices that are as innovative as they are demanding. Without renouncing its origins, with the Xylon hors normes exhibition, the association is presenting a non-exhaustive look at the ground-breaking practices and helping to situate relief printing in a contemporary context.

Jane's Journey est une partie d'une série para-autobiographique décrivant Jane comme un archétype de la beauté féminine. Son personnage solitaire se détourne de la caméra examinant le rôle du glamour et de la perte d'individualisation dans l'expression artistique. La série questionne la capacité des sociétés à isoler leurs propres expériences de l'existence fictive dépeinte par l'industrie de la culture, de la peinture et de la photographie au théâtre, à la littérature et au cinéma. C'est l'étrangeté dans les mises en scène, la dislocation du style avec le temps qui insistent sur l'individualité de Jane, sa conscience de soi, sa maturité malgré la pression sociale de se conformer. Son glamour vient de son mystère et vit malgré les postures délibérément non provocatrices qu'elle adopte. Elle ne cherche à plaire à personne sauf à elle-même.
