July 2016
An exhibit curated by the students of ANTH 431/518 "Museum Methods".
Now on at Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, Floor 2.
This student-produced exhibition considers UBC student clothing, the contexts in which students dress, and their diverse self-expressions.
We explore UBC student clothing through a range of themes. We look at:
- The history of the UBC logo and the Thunderbird mascot
- How students express individual and group identities through clothing
- The ways students display identity through club membership
- The changing demographics of the student body and how nationality affects student clothing
We hope this exhibition provokes you to think about how your clothing represents you.

Aboriginal (Un)History Month 2016

The “un” in “Aboriginal (Un)History Month” represents the continuing importance and relevance of Aboriginal peoples in Canada and around the world. Join us in June on the main floor of UBC’s Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, located on unceded Musqueam territory, for this year’s Aboriginal (Un)History Month exhibit.
This year’s exhibit is introduced by Dr. Linc Kesler, Associate Professor of English and First Nations and Indigenous Studies; the Director, First Nations House of Learning; and Sr Advisor to the President on Aboriginal Affairs:

This year’s exhibits focus on some of the programs for Aboriginal youth that take place each spring and summer at UBC, operated by a range of UBC programs and departments, but all to a single objective—giving younger Aboriginal students a great experience, and a taste of university life.

It’s About Time: A Retrospective of Asian Presence at UBC (May 3-31, 2016)

To commemorate UBC’s Centennial, the Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies Program invites you to celebrate 100 years of Asian communities at UBC. The exhibition is a relational project that showcases various stories from the Hong Kong Canada Crosscurrents Project, a trailer and photos from the upcoming film All Our Father’s Relations, creative work done by students for the ACAM Student Journal, and narratives from the ACAM Centennial Alumni Project: Retelling UBC’s History from an Asian Canadian Lens. By engaging with these existing projects, ACAM hopes to foster dialogue that includes alternative histories around the UBC community. We ask how these different yet intertwined Asian diasporic histories influence the ways in which the current student body interacts with the unceded territory upon which we live and work.

UBC Players Club Centennial Exhibit (April 1-29, 2016)

On November 2nd 1915, a group of students formed the Players Club, an avenue for theatre on the new University campus. Under the guidance of Prof. F. G. Wood, the club rose to prominence as a leading theatre company on campus and in the city.

This exhibit is a celebration of the various aspects of the club. It provides a look at the various events we have hosted over our 100 years. Most importantly, it provides a glimpse into the community that is the Players Club.

As part of the Nitobe Memorial Garden Concepts and Prospects symposium, the research curators of the Collective for the Advanced and Unified Studies in the Visual Arts (CAUSA) present a multi-site exhibition at UBC. Locations include:

- Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (Level 2, Main Foyer art gallery)
- Rare Books and Special Collections (IKBLC level 1)
- Asian Centre and Library

Developing from affiliations with the Free International University for Creativity and Interdisciplinary Research (as initiated by Joseph Beuys and Heinrich Böll), CAUSA – Collective for Advanced and Unified Studies in the Visual Arts – aims to develop autonomous scholarly analysis and interpretation of visual culture (including problems of intelligibility) within specific historical contexts. CAUSA functions in association with a ‘global village’ network of independent and institutional scholars – in tandem with a pluralistic community of socially engaged contemporary artists.
