All Day Amy Swartz Mixed Media Exhibition: Down the Rabbit Hole (Multi-Day Event)

The Robert Langen Art Gallery's first 2017 exhibition, Down the Rabbit Hole, is a mixed media display by renowned Canadian artist Amy Swartz.

Using incongruous materials, Amy explores synergies between the natural world, consumer culture, fantasy and her own life experience. Similar to a plastic surgeon grafting bone and skin to reconfigure the body, she performs a related type of physical manipulation by conjoining and reforming objects.

During this process, she reflects on the complexities that link living things, and in contrast, our attempts to control life through artificial means.

Amy Swartz is a Toronto-based visual artist. She creates highly detailed and meticulously crafted collections that combine both natural and artificial materials in sculpture, installation and drawing. ´╗┐Her work explores the idea of obsession — not only in the practice of art, but also in humanity’s perceived control over nature, life, and death.

  • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Graduate Teaching Community

    As a graduate student teaching a course at Laurier, you know that support from colleagues is an integral part of your experience as an educator. The Graduate Teaching Community will give you the opportunity to foster supportive relationships with other graduate student instructors.

    The community will come together four times during the term so that you can draw upon and learn from the experiences of fellow early-career educators. Share your ideas, challenges, and successes with a supportive group of peers.

    In addition to the in-person discussion sessions, you will also be invited to communicate and collaborate through a Graduate Teaching Community MyLS page.

    1:00 PM - 3:00 PM Faculty Reads - Teaching Naked
    Teaching Naked: How Moving Technology out of Your College Classroom Will Improve Student Learning by Jose Antonio Bowen Faculty Reads is a book club initiative that brings together Faculty members and other interested members of our community to read and discuss notable books with a specific bearing on our teaching, research and institutional environment. "Technology is profoundly changing education. If students are going to continue to pay enormous sums for campus classes, colleges will need to provide more than what can be found online and maximize 'naked' face-to-face contact with faculty." Let's discuss.
