Cut/Paste/Resist: A Pop-Up Exhibition

The University of New Brunswick’s Creative Writing Program, in co-operation with the UNB Art Centre, Student Union Building, Arts NB and the Jack Layton Chair at Ryerson University is pleased to present Cut/Paste/Resist: A Pop-Up Exhibition.

The exhibition runs from February 10 to 12, in the Student Union Building, 103.

Cut/Paste/Resist is a community-driven exhibition of collage works focusing on the topic of “resistance.”

Featuring new works by artists, students, art students, writers, writing students, children, and collage makers from around the world, Cut/Paste/Resist seeks to bring together people in an era of divisiveness and social disruption. Through the highly accessible art practice of collage (paper, scissors, glue!), the exhibition provides a venue for participants to highlight issues that concern them while also having fun.

Everyone is welcome, and the exhibition includes a Collage Station for anyone wanting to make a work on the spot and add it to the collection.

Cut/Paste/Resist is co-curated by Canadian writer and the current UNB Writer-in-Residence RM Vaughan and Canadian scholar/author Dr. Kenneth Moffatt, holder of the Jack Layton Chair in Social Justice at Ryerson University, Toronto.

As the curators note in their Call for Submissions (which has been extended to Feb 7, due to popular demand), “All people interested in participating are welcome. We don’t care if you are an artist or not. This exhibition is open to everybody who wants to participate by making a collage – students, faculty, practising artists, non-artists, etc.”

Please join us for this exciting and open collaboration!
