Carleton hosts The Evidence Room

The Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism is currently showcasing The Evidence Room, an exhibit containing over 20 of the documents used to prove Auschwitz was a death camp.   The all-white exhibition presents casts of drawings, photos, and correspondences that have been covered in plaster to replicate the real pieces. The death camp was, and is coined as the “The greatest crime ever committed by architects.” The exhibit was created by Robert Jan van Pelt, Anne Bordeleau, Sascha Hastings, and Donald McKay.

CUAG exhibit features ‘space drawings’

Sun K. Kwak, a New York-based Korean artist, has been practising what she calls “space drawings” since 1995. As of Jan. 15, the Carleton University Art Gallery (CUAG) is the most recent space to host her work. The artist installed her exhibit called Untying Space, which is her first solo exhibition in Canada, over a two-week period. Lines of black masking tape weave across the white walls of the gallery’s mezzanine, creating bold and dramatic waves of contrast. Kwak, who was trained in painting, calls this method “drawing.” “As a medium, black masking tape freely shifts between two and three dimensional planes,” she said over email. “ ‘Untying’ means freeing the space and myself through lines, and transforms the space […]

Carleton grad up for Academy Award

This year’s Oscar field features some Carleton connections. Paul Austerberry, an architecture graduate, was nominated for best production design for his work on The Shape of Water. The movie, directed by Guillermo Del Toro, stars Sadie Hawkins as Eliza, a woman who befriends an amphibious creature held at a government facility during the Cold War. The Shape of Water also stars Michael Shannon, Octavia Spencer, and Richard Jenkins. Austerberry called the nomination “pretty spectacular” and compared it to playing for the Stanley Cup. “We’re a fairly small movie in the grand scheme of things . . . and we’re up against some pretty big-budget movies like Blade Runner 2049, so it’s quite an honour to be nominated with that calibre […]
