The ArtLab’s POP-UP exhibition series presents the traces of research and creative projects carried out by Bishop’s University’s student body and faculty, as well as by other groups and members of the Sherbrooke community. Following the principles of community-based museology and micromuseology, these ephemeral art events are often collective, participatory and of an experimental nature.

POP-UP EXHIBITION #3 | Mirage
April 6 to 16, 2022
Tosha Callaway, Majd Shammas, Maïthé Cyr-Morin
A mirage, a gap between two realities.
An idea, an illusion.
Bringing together the work of four Fine Arts graduating students, the exhibition Mirage explores this notion of discrepancy between the artist’s perception and that of the viewer. The POP-UP exhibition presented in the vitrines invites us to explore traces of the creative process of three of the artists exhibited in the Fore-man Art Gallery, to learn more about their vision and try to dispel the mirage.

This first POP-UP exhibition presents a series of sketchbooks, each representing the creative process of an artist participating in this year’s Fine Arts Graduating Student’s Exhibition. These pages bring you into the artists thoughts in imagery and calculations, moving from ideas and concepts to finally arrive to the results displayed in the exhibition Intuition.
Their own intuitions were tested on paper through experimentations and thoughtful creations. Observe how they followed their gut feelings and developped their conscious thoughts in the process of making the artworks presented inside the gallery.
