  • The Museum in the Hallway / MLLC

    Cables and Squares (April 2018)

    This inaugural exhibition in Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures showcases students’ creative works this year as well as in the past. One side of the hallway is sober and pale: writing and lithophanies are placed around a small graffiti piece by local artist Mat Vizbulis. The opposite side is colourful and turbulent, with two children books made by students and the expression of our thanks to Brock Radio for its support of programs in different languages. Cables and Squares brings together texts, images, sounds and performance.
