Mat and Lukas Glenn

The Visual Arts Visiting Artist Series program brings in a diverse variety of artists for campus talks and public gallery presentations that include visual artists, filmmakers, sculptors, painters, playwrights, essayists, interactive and digital media artists. Each artist presents a talk to students in the BFA program and the public, as well as offering critiques to students in the 4th year of the Visual Arts Program.

The Visiting Artist Series will be held in-person on Mondays at 10 am in the University Theatre (ADM 026) as part of the CCS 150 Creative and Critical Art Theory class. These talks are open to the public.

Join us on Monday, March 25 for a talk with Mat and Lukas Glenn.

Mat Glenn is an emerging artist from Kelowna BC, specializing in sculpture, installation, printmaking and digital media. His research explores materialism and ecological thought in the context of mass extinction. With a focus on visual the languages found in the outdoor-recreation-industrial-complex, Glenn uses action sports as a lens to reconsider vitality of nonhuman things and human-nonhuman assemblages. Glenn is a graduate from the University of British Columbia’s BFA program. Recent exhibitions include Earn Your Stripes at The New Gallery (Calgary), Creative Growth Centre for Spiritual Nourishment at Kelowna Art Gallery, and Equipment-Space at Lake Country Art Gallery.

Lukas Glenn is an emerging artist working in installation, digital media, and drawing. Glenn’s work proposes alternative models for human-nonhuman kinship, speculating in the context of climate collapse. Glenn works with materials like plant matter, snowmobile parts, found footage, reclaimed wood, hiking supplies, and electronics. His installations use play and world-building to explore material realities of extinction and resource extraction. Most recently his work is focused on taking materials designed for ecological domination and repurpose them as objects for ecological support and care; retools imagery, waste, and industrial equipment to create sporty irrigation systems, rugged compost shelters, and detail-rich dioramas. He attributes his resourceful, D.I.Y. approach to his upbringing in small-town BC.
