Thank you for attending!
Welcome to my graduation page - this is the right place, you've made it!
I'd like to first thank you all for taking the time to come to my site and graduation page! Your support and interest really does mean the world to me. Feel free to have a look around my site! You can do this by clicking on the "ERIN LUCEY" in the heading above and, if you'd like to stay in the loop about my artistic practice, please fill out the subscription form at the bottom of this page.
The Show is Emily Carr University's annual exhibition, featuring the work of the graduating class of the corresponding year. Typically, this exhibition is held in person at the university - thousands of people from the community attend, there are financial awards and prizes, job and exhibition opportunities are offered to some graduates, local scouts and gallery owners attend to search for new talent and emerging artists. There are bars on all four floors of the university, areas to purchase food, live performances, interactive exhibitions, and tons of art to be seen. Needless to say, it's a huge deal.
This year (and last year), The Show moved online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although there will be very little in-person activities and exhibition opportunities, there will still be an amazing amount going on on the website for The Show. there will be live performances, things to stream, games to play (yes, we have students who design games!), and so much more that I can't even imagine. It will still be juried, financial prizes awarded, exhibition opportunities offered, and thousands will 'attend'. A beautiful lining of these odd times is that all of you, my network, family, people who I care for and care for me, are able to see not only my work but the work of those I have come to know as peers in the contemporary art community.
The Show, Graduate Exhibition - Opening May 14th
The convocation will take place on May 14th at 2pm PST. It will only last an hour and a half which I am thrilled about. I typically find graduation ceremonies tedious and boring, but I suspect this one wont be. You'll hear from Gillian Siddall, the president of our university, whom I have worked closely with over the last two years in my two terms on the Students' Union in addition to Morgan Martino, the undergraduate speaker, who I greatly admire and am very lucky to have gotten to know through my three years at Emily Carr University.
