Distinguished NSCAD alumna Kelly Lycan is a photo-based installation artist who resides in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Lycan’s work investigates the way objects and images are placed and displayed in the world and the cycle of value they experience. She employs photography and sculpture in order to engage them beyond medium specificity. Her work has been exhibited across Canada, the US, Europe and the Middle East. Lycan also collaborated from 2005-2015 with the artist collective Instant Coffee, a service-oriented artist collective who have exhibited extensively. As part of the artist’s residency, Lycan will present a course to North Shore post-secondary students called Projects+, partially based on David Askevold’s Projects Class that was originally taught at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design from 1969-1972. It was known for its innovative approach to engaging visiting artists with students enrolled in the curriculum. Askevold invited artists to submit projects that he and his students would then carry out. Projects + Class will address the model of the original course as well as engage with Kennedy’s personal art collection as seen in the exhibition NOW BULLETIN.
