Judy Radul’s This is Television book launch

SFU School of Contemporary Arts’ visual arts professor, Judy Radul, is launching her new work, This is Television. The book is based on her art exhibition of the same name which was showcased in Berlin in 2013.

Radul will be joined by Allison Collins, a Vancouver-based curator, at Vancouver’s Or Bookstore. The two will be discussing Radul’s new work, which centres around the medium’s growth towards obsoletion, as well as figuring out what television “is.” As noted by Radul on her website, “Like many technologies [television] was a collection of parts, a way of viewing and a habit, as much as a being.”

Judy Radul’s book launch will be held at Or Bookstore on Tuesday, May 28, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Study Abroad — the musical! Destination: U.K.

Ever fantasize about ditching class and going abroad halfway through a semester? For our freshly dumped protagonist, Cheryl, this fantasy becomes a reality. Our heroine takes a musical journey to Brighton, finding passion, new loves, and more in her journey.

The musical will be playing for one night only, so catch these tunes while you can. Study Abroad is directed by SFU SCA student, Cheryl Olvera, as a requirement for her BFA directed study. The work also features SCA students Erica Regehr and Matt Brown.

Study Abroad — the musical! Destination: U.K. will be shown for one night only on Thursday, May 23, at 7:30 p.m. The musical will be held in SFU’s Goldcorp Centre for the Arts at the David Mowafaghian World Art Centre. Entrance is free.
