An exhibit produced by two UBC graduate students is now on display in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. The Pose Stands for Potentiality – featuring works by Jordy Hamilton and curated by Toby Lawrence – juxtaposes UBC’s presidential portraits with a series of smaller works, fostering a conversation between contemporary and traditional forms of painting.
Jordy Hamilton and Toby Lawrence are pursuing an MFA and MA, respectively, in UBC’s Department of Art History, Visual Art and Theory.
The Pose for Potentiality is located on both levels of the Ridington Room, located on the third and fourth floors at the north end of the Learning Centre.
