Y-CAG 2013/2014 Information Sheet

Y-CAG 2013/2014 Application Form

Y-CAG offers youth interested in contemporary art, visual culture and exhibition-making the opportunity to work closely with leading artists, curators, gallery staff and educators. Co-hosted by the Contemporary Art Gallery and Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Y-CAG will offer a behind-the-scenes look into both institutions, through gallery and facility visits.

Students will engage in discussions focusing on contemporary cultural issues; participate in the production of publications, events and presentations; and gain experience producing, installing and documenting artwork. Work produced in the program will culminate in a student-initiated ‘exhibition in print’.

  • Meet bi-weekly and build relationships with other creative teens, Contemporary Art Gallery and Emily Carr University of Art + Design staff, and visiting museum professionals and artists;
  • Identify interests and questions and use these to explore art through a variety of means, from looking, researching, and discussing to art making;
  • Place contemporary art within the context of what is going on in the larger world; and
  • Work with a variety of people and teen peers to create a public art exhibition or event.

Cost

The cost of the program is $350 for the entire six months and includes refreshments at each session.

Schedule

Teens will meet twice a month from 4:00 – 7:00 PM two Wednesdays of every month for afterschool meetings facilitated by educators and art professionals. Meetings will alternate between the CAG and Emily Carr.

Wine & cheese boards — engaging critical & theoretical discussions about contemporary art in Vancouver — where do I sign up?!

Night School is a new intensive program  for anyone interested in broadening their understanding of contemporary art. Facilitated by independent curator Lee Plested, participants engage in seminars, studio visits and special events in order to unpack the concepts and thematics of contemporary practice via the history of CAG exhibitions.

Lee Plested is an engaging and charming lecturer who encourages group discussion from those in attendance. At last Thursday night’s seminar Plested introduced works by Stan DouglasRebecca Belmore, Nan Goldin and Stephen Waddell. He clearly articulates the social, political and historical themes particular to each artist. He then initiates critical discourse forming relationships between each. The round table format is very inviting and allows for insightful critical dialogue.

In addition to studio visits and talks, Night School participants will attend exhibition openings and other arts and culture events across the city! This is an amazing initiative that introduces its students to the multiple ways in which conversations regarding the philosophical, aesthetic, socio-political and creation processes of contemporary art can be articulated and received. The CAG is currently planning a second session of Night School in early 2015. This is something you won’t want to miss so stay tuned for more information regarding registration and programming!
