Hello from Michele, exploring learning programs at CAG

Hello, my name is Michele Davey.

Hello, my name is Michele Davey. I am in my third year at the University of British Columbia completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Art. I am happy to be interning and assisting with learning programs at the CAG  through my studio class Artists in Society at UBC. This internship is a special opportunity for me to work within an art institution in order to witness the process and rhythm of the gallery space.

I have been documenting and blogging about Burrard Marina Field House artist in residence, Keg de Souza and her temporary installation located in a former Dim Sum restaurant at 544 Main St.  After visiting Keg in the space, I began to examine and reflect on Vancouver’s Chinatown in new ways. I find Keg’s work very unique and I feel lucky to have witnessed the growth of her installation related to food culture, displacement and urban gentrification in Vancouver.

I am an artist of many mediums, including drawing, painting, printmaking, sound, video, and photography. Currently, I am learning how to communicate ideas visually and acquiring medium specific skills to be able to generate meaningful content. You can visit my website at to see more of my work. Two of my favourite mediums are photography and painting. I am excited to interact with the community and learn more about the CAG and it’s projects.
