Materials Encounter

Material Encounters
Studio Art Gallery, Capilano University
March 1-19, 2014

Illustrating moments from a three-year art-based collaborative inquiry into materiality in early
childhood education, this exhibit explores materials as encounter and event. We consider what it
means to think with things: how each material evokes particular intra-actions and presents particular
possibilities among/with/between young children.

A joint project between the University of Victoria, Capilano University, and Douglas College
