Emily Carr University is pleased to announce Sean Lynch as the Fall 2016 Audain Distinguished Artist-in-Residence. Please join us in the ECU Theatre on October 6th for a talk by Lynch, which will be followed by a reception in the Charles H. Scott Gallery.
The Audain Distinguished Artist-in-Residence Program, funded by Michael Audain and the Audain Foundation for the Visual Arts, enables the University to bring the world’s leading contemporary artists to live and work in Vancouver for a one-to-three-month period. Guest artists and visiting lecturers are an integral part of the Emily Carr community. They complement students’ education and work with existing faculty, bringing new opportunities for collaboration and engagement.
