Visiting Artist Series (VISA): Donald Lawrence

September 25, 2023 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Come listen to Donald Lawrence in the Admin Theatre, September 25th, in a public Artist Talk and learn alongside the students of  CCS250.

Donald Lawrence uses combinations of photography, sculpture, drawing, and installation to explore the meeting place of urban and wilderness culture. Several on-water projects, such as the Underwater Pinhole Photography Project (since 1997), Kepler’s Klepper (2011), and the Coastal Cameras Obscura (since 2014), connect Lawrence’s interests in sea kayaking and the ocean environment to a long-standing fascination with early and prephotographic optical apparatuses.

Lawrence is the recipient of research grants from the BC Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), including as lead artist/researcher of The Camera Obscura Project (SSHRC) that saw an international group of artists and scholars realize the Midnight Sun Camera Obscura Festival in Dawson City, YK (2015).

Born in Calgary (1963), Donald Lawrence has a BFA from the University of Victoria (1986) and an MFA from York University (1988). He teaches in the Visual Arts program at Thompson Rivers University, in Kamloops, BC.
