What is community?

December 7 – 21, 2023
Niagara Artists Centre (NAC), St. Catharines

What is community? is a student video art exhibition presented by the Department of Visual Arts at Brock University’s Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine & Performing Arts (MIWSFPA). In partnership with Niagara Artists Centre (NAC), the screening of work from Video Art (2P97) students will be held in NAC’s Microcinema lounge, a gallery transformed into a screening lounge with vintage couches and free snacks for audiences.

Led by Visual Arts Associate Professor and artist Donna Szoke, the video artworks self-curated by students relate to community service learning through their research-creation in the course. The students were mentored by Szoke and visiting artists Theo Cuthand, Gustavo Cerquera Benjumea and Camille Turner.

Through this project, Brock students have learned about self-curation and self-promotion encapsulated through summative reflection. The screening is free, all are welcome at the accessible venue. The screening runs from December 7 to 21, 2023.
