Underpinnings: 130 Years of NSCAD
NSCAD Biennial Alumni Exhibition
Curated by Tori Fleming

Anna Leonowens Gallery, 1891 Granville St, Halifax, Nova Scotia. B3J 3J6

This year marks 130 years since Anna Leonowens first opened the Victoria School of Art in 1887. Since then, NSCAD has maintained its reputation as one the most influential art schools under many names, locations and presidents. NSCAD has provided the educational underpinnings for the studio practice of numerous significant Canadian artists, cultural workers, and creative thinkers.

For the 2017 Alumni Biennial, the NSCAD Alumni Association invited former students to reflect on the core values and pedagogy that have created the legacy for which NSCAD is known. Coordinated by NSCAD alumna Tori Fleming, this large, salon-style exhibition includes work by more than 100 alumni artists and designers.
