The three locations that comprise SFU Galleries offer a program of exhibitions, talks, publications and performances that appeal to everyone from the art student eager for discursive nourishment to the curious passer-by. This fall’s program is no exception.

At SFU Gallery’s Burnaby campus is a new film by Berlin-based artist Andreas Bunte. In Erosion (2016), the artist responds to the Arthur Erickson designed university’s Brutalist fusion of Greek Acropolis and Zen garden as an Anthropocenean geological formation.

At the Audain Gallery, L.A.-based artist Martine Syms draws less on the built environment than on the structure of television sitcoms, early cinema, advertising and GIFs to “address how perceptions of singular and social bodies are formed by medias, and in turn influence them.” Through video, audio and photographic work the dialectically-minded Syms demonstrates how the media is a rhythmic instrument – prone to hyperbole, exhaustion and unreliability.

At the Teck Gallery, Kwakwaka'wakw artist Marianne Nicolson’s year-long installation recognizes the city as both a social and architectural theme park that has long performed its “fraudulent promise” of success, progress and wealth for indigenous people. Featured here are Nicolson’s family photos from the 1940s and ’50s, in addition to a neon Kwak’wala text work.
