Intersections: Art + Research

The Union Gallery is pleased to invite graduate and undergraduate students to submit presentation proposals for its program, Intersections: Art + Research. This is a cross-disciplinary opportunity to present research in conjunction with artists exhibiting in the gallery.

We are looking for brief proposals (200-300 words) from graduate and senior undergraduate students whose research speaks to themes present in gallery exhibitions. This program encourages a cross-disciplinary approach in sharing and understanding the work being produced in the Queen’s community. Intersections: Art + Research is a recurring program throughout the year, and as such, proposals may be submitted at any time. The gallery will then select researchers whose work links thematically to exhibitions.
