Half Seen Through Interlaced Branches
FOFA Gallery is an exhibition and research space that reflects the creative diversity, activities and interest of the Faculty of Fine Arts.
The gallery is committed to supporting and profiling the research and exhibition practices of the Faculty of Fine Arts including current graduate students, faculty, technicians, and alumni from the Art Education, Art History, Contemporary Dance, Creative Art Therapies, Design and Computation Arts, Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema, Music, Studio Arts, and Theatre programmes.
In addition to traditional presentation methods (solo, group, thematically based exhibitions) the FOFA Gallery is also favorable toward proposals that engage academic interests or disciplines represented in Concordia’s larger community. Applicants are also encouraged to propose interdisciplinary and new media presentations, residencies, artist projects and other practices that extend the notions of curatorial and artistic practices, and of the Gallery itself.
