spring 2021 – visa 4f06 honours Exhibition
The pandemic of 2020-21 has affected many aspects of our lives but for the artists who have participated in CODA, installed at the Rodman Hall Art Centre between May 12-26, 2021, the opportunity to show their work collectively was an important goal. For viewers, in reality, it will be only experienced on-line in documented form. Participating artists are 4th year honours students from both the 2019-20 and 2020-21 cohorts at Brock University and two graduate students who were invited to participate in lieu of an exhibition in April, 2020 when COVID-19 produced the first lockdown and resulted in the closure of galleries across Ontario.
A year later in which artists have had to dig deep into their resources, working remotely and often under duress, the exhibition is a remarkable tribute to all involved, from the participating student artists to the instructors and staff who have extended their support and vision, with a determination to fulfil this last professional obligation, a graduation show.
