Two Exhibitions: The Transformation of Space, and Simon Fraser University Centennial Suite of BC Prints

Scope & Content

File consists of correspondence, receipts, press release, newspaper articles, photographs and slides. The two concurrent exhibitions focused on mathematical forms and ordered thought. The first exhibition examined symmetry and regular geometric bodies. Avant-garde in its concern with inter-relationships and processes rather than isolated, static phenomena, the exhibition was organized partly by the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University, and loaned by the Smithsonian Institution. The second exhibition included a series of thirteen silk screen prints commissioned by Simon Fraser University. Artists represented were Maxwell Bates, Iain Baxter, B.C. Binning, Claude Breeze, Audrey Capel-Doray, Brian Fisher, John Koerner, Michael Morris, Toni Onley, Jack Shadbolt, Gordon Smith, Joel Smith, and Takao Tanabe. The collection was organized as a Centennial gift to major museums across Canada by the SFU Centre for Communications and the Arts, and was made possible by the appointment of Bob Bigelow, Master Printer. The exhibitions were shown at the UBC Fine Arts Gallery March 21 to April 6, 1968.
