The New Paradigm:
Models, Diagrams, Proposals and Provisions

for the Coming Age

Featuring new work by artists Geoffrey Farmer, Devon Knowles, T&T, Ron Tran and Elizabeth Zvonar, The New Paradigm utilizes the context of The Pavilion as an oracle to present artworks that function as generative, reflexive tools that orient us towards our collective future.

The role of creative work, whether it be craft, assemblage, collage or collecting, is presented as a crucial element or extropy- the prediction that human intelligence and technology will enable life to expand in an orderly way throughout the universe. the playful approach to this journey that these artists have taken indicates an auspicious outcome.

Opening Celebration: March 3, 5-8 pm
Open Hours: Thurs, Fri, sat, 1-5 pm
March 4-27, 2010

Location: The Pavilion, front lawn of Langara College 100 W.49th ave

Also, The Pavilion would like to welcome Owl Alarm by Vancouver artist Kevin Schmidt. Owl Alarm replaces the shrill electronic beeping of conventional gallery and shop door alarms with the call of a spotted owl . Having migrated from Catriona Jeffries Gallery, Owl Alarm is now a permanent fixture in The Pavilion.

The Pavilion is a project by Holly Ward,
Langara College's Centre For Art in Public Spaces 2009-2010 Artist in Residence.
