From April 2 through September 12, 2016, Emily Carr University of Art + Design participated in the XXI International Exhibition of the Triennale di Milano.
The XXI International Exhibition of the Triennale di Milano is hosted in Milan, Italy, every three years and showcases international institutions working in fields of art, architecture, design, fashion and film. Innovation and 21st century design was this year’s theme and Emily Carr University, as a leader in innovation, research and design, was invited to participate and create an exhibition space in the “New Crafts” pavilion.
Keith Doyle, Co-Director of the Material Matters Research Centre at Emily Carr University, spearheaded the University’s presence at the Triennale and with Emily Carr students, the research and faculty teams, hosted a series of events, courses, and participatory workshops geared towards a greater understanding of networked creative collaboration. Emily Carr’s exhibition challenged visitors to participate in an experiment in how the institution collaborates to not only think, but also make.
Emily Carr University’s selection in the Triennale is another example of recent accolades like the QS University World Rankings and Red Dot Design awards recognizing Emily Carr as a leader in the fields of art, design, media and research and providing diverse opportunities for students to create solutions around global issues of sustainability, health and welfare, critical making, emerging media and new models of entrepreneurship.
