Celebrate Memorial Hall 100

Sept. 8/15 - Oct. 27, 2023

Join us as we celebrate Memorial Hall's 100 birthday! Designed by Saint John architect F. Neil Brodie, and currently the home of the Fine Arts at UNB, Memorial Hall was originally conceived to house the Departments of Chemistry and Physics. Following the outbreak of World War I, it was decided the building would stand as a memorial to UNB's 35 fallen war heroes and the cornerstone for Memorial Hall was laid in 1923 by Lord Byng of Vimy, the Governor General of Canada.

The UNB Art Centre, the Centre for Musical Arts and Theatre UNB will take a look back with a special exhibit and performances that honour this historic building's long legacy.

Kim Vose Jones: Cirque de Vice/Lifeboat

Detail of Kim Vose Jones's piece, Swanns Way

Nov. 3 - Dec.14, 2023

These two extraordinary installations by sculptor Kim-Vose Jones spring from the artist's desire to challenge not only her technical skills but her desire to explore complex social issues and the implications of humanity's effect on the planet. While Cirque de Vice is a contemporary take on the medieval allegory of the 7 deadly vices, Lifeboat presents an unstable and ghostly vessel filled with sculpted animal forms. These diverse occupants, each exhibiting their own degrees of vulnerability, struggle together to reach a distant shore.
