A conversation. More open-ended than a discussion, deeper than a chat; more nuanced than gossip and more sensitive than a debate. Rich in complexity, fluid, porous, a process of reciprocal engagement. In this sense, a conversation is dynamic, malleable, the antithesis of monomania and rigidity. No especial dogma prevails and there is nothing particular to achieve, except for the encounter itself—a coming-together of people, ideas, gestures and experiences. Such are the notions informing the 21st Annual Graduating Fine Arts Students Group Exhibition (aka the Grad Show), an encounter marked by movement, intersection and exchange. 

The voices in Conversations belong to the seven young women forming the graduating cohort as they present the works that mark the completion of their program. Over the last four years, each has fine-tuned her unique artistic identity. Their sources of inspiration are diverse, their ideas, heterogeneous and their approaches, multivariate; yet each is motivated by the same desire to engage, not just with her art world peers, but also with society at large. Art is essentially a matter of communication, after all. 




The Foreman Art Gallery is proud to present the 2019 edition of the Bishop’s University Film Festival in conjunction with the exhibition conversations. The Bishop’s University Film Festival (BUFF) celebrates and publicizes the creativity and skill of Bishop’s students, no matter what program they are in, through an annual competition in digital filmmaking. A selection of BUFF films is presented at the Festival Cinéma du Monde de Sherbrooke held annually in April, and one BUFF film competes in the student competition at the Festival du Nouveau Cinema in Montreal in October.
