The CCAFCB is pleased to unveil its project "Découvertes Artistiques" ("Artistic Discoveries").
16 artists from British Columbia will create a visual art event to be presented in 4 cities around the province: Kelowna and Prince George on February 9th 2013, and Vancouver and Victoria on March 9th 2013.
The 4 cities are paired off and each represent a different region of the province: Kelowna/Victoria and Prince George/Vancouver. The selected artists will work together within these groups. They will receive $1000 for their work. Each of the cities will host the corresponding group of artists for one day.
These workshops allow for an interaction with the public so that they may familiarise themselves with different visual art techniques. This is not a question of a collective oeuvre, but more of a workshop or learning experience around a common vision formed by the collective of selected artists (a theme, an idea, a technique - eg. "use of perspective"). Each artist must follow this vision so that when the public moves from one discipline to the next they will find a common link between them.
Découvertes Artistiques challenges its artists to find a common meaning, and offers them a team spirit that is not always easy to find within the domain of visual art. Finally, Découvertes Artistiques insists on a coherent collective project in the eyes of the public.
