COVID-19 has created many unique challenges for artists, but PULP Grenfell Student Gallery has adapted to take visual art to the streets of Corner Brook.
This summer, PULP has mounted two public art exhibitions in the City of Corner Brook. Each installation showcases the work of Grenfell Campus Visual Arts students and both shows are open for public viewing 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Soft. Power. is showing on the exterior of Swirsky’s on Broadway until July 25. The show explores the idea that the coastal areas can be both soft and powerful, depending on the weather, tides and sea state. This exhibition examines this dichotomy as it relates to the ocean and its impact on coastal areas and communities including Indigenous perspectives, shared public spaces, and transportation links. The selected works were created by Lorna Conquergood, Kayla George and Tiffany Lyver. The show was curated by Alli Johnston, PULP’s Curator in Residence.
PULP gratefully acknowledges the support of the Grenfell Vice-President’s Office and Teaching & Learning Fund, as well as the Ocean Frontier Institute, the Future Ocean Coastal Infrastructure fund, Speedpro Signs, and Corner Brook Mayor Jim Parsons.
Picturing Community will be displayed on the exterior of Corner Brook City Hall and the Corner Brook Public Library throughout the summer. It is a public exhibition of photographic portraits
