Artist Talk: Carmen Mattear
Sunday, March 26th at 3:30pm, 404 York Road
Are you curious about Carmen Mattear, our Hard and Soft: Ed Video Artist in Resident? Do you want to know what she's been up to and learn more about her artistic practice? Join us Sunday, March 26th at Ed Video (404 York Road) at 3:30pm for an artist talk by Carmen!
Carmen Mattear (born 2000) is a multidisciplinary artist who collects media as data and finds patterns through method, and are then translated and expressed as sound installation, sculpture, video, and VR. Her practice is informed by cinema, music, television, and family relations. For Mattear, art is about creating organized chaos, in which anecdotes emerge, revealing our positive humanism. Mattear currently lives in Guelph, ON and holds a Bachelor of Arts Honours, with Distinction, in Studio Art from the University of Guelph, where she also completed a minor in Psychology.
This internship opportunity is presented as part of the “Digital Skills for Youth” program coordinated by the Independent Media Arts Alliance and funded by the Department of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada.
