The recent grad from the low-residency MFA program has been expanding on the ideas developed in her work during her degree
Class of 2020
The recent grad created an innovative and immersive art installation that caught the attention of Montréal-based Moment Factory, receiving this year’s award as a result.
The 2020 grad uses participatory design in order to make functional UX/UI design that gives young patients more agency.
The new grad emphasizes community practice by using reclaimed clay in performances that are collaborative with the audience
Vivien’s expressive paintings and sculptures showcase her interest in the festivals, folklores, and hybrid cultures of Trinidad & Tobago while addressing how the history of slavery, indentured labour, and colonialism in the Caribbean are both critiqued and celebrated through a myriad of cultural expressions.
Vincent Chorabik (BFA 2020) explores environmentalism, LGBTQ+ identity, and pride/pleasure through their work. Blurring the line and teasing apart the relationship between ‘high’ and ‘low’ art, Vincent has shifted their process to become more eco-conscious, choosing to use found materials or digital collages in lieu of traditional materials.
The majority of her work now involves the integration of illustration with design, and as an interdisciplinary designer, she enjoys experimenting with photo documentation, layering, colours, patterning and typography.
