Reception: Friday, June 19th 7pm

The Tropics To The Herbarium is an exhibition of works by recent graduates from Emily Carr University and Simon Fraser University. This being the artists’ first opportunity to make work post-graduation, the pieces in the show are reflective of the changing conditions under which each artist produces work. As such, the exhibition is the liminal first step between work made as a student and work produced as a professional. The transition between works made for the ECUAD and SFU graduation exhibitions and the Helen Pitt offsite grad show serves to document the evolution of each artist’s practice.

The Tropics To The Herbarium is a continuation of The Helen Pitt commitment to provide exhibition space for emerging artists and an annual offsite grad show.
