March 2–31, 2012 in the Main Space

Kayla Cady, Alexandra Emberley, Anna Gaby-Trot, Megan Hahn, Megan Hildebrandt, Patricia Huijen, Annie King, Galia Kwetny, Nathalie Lavoie, Colin Lyons, Faye Mullen, Sam Pettengill, Kim Thomas, Alma Visscher, and Sam Walrod.

Curated by Alysha Creighton, Tessa Hawkins, and Andrea Kastner.

This group show, selected from an open call for works that deal with moments of rupture as catalysts for change through mechanical instability, provides the launchpad for The University of Alberta Art and Design Graduate Student Association's symposium, Instability in Visual and Material Culture, taking place on March 16-17, 2012.

The symposium hosts several panels taking place at the university, including a keynote speaker and graduate papers which will promote an understanding of instability as a pervasive condition that can be exposed and even harnessed to productive critical ends
