Fine Arts EV Building
For all those who thought the invention of Photoshop changed the way we read photos, think again. Petapixel just publish an article about portraits made by AI, photos of people who never exists. This looks like the end of stock photography, but for artist, the fun times are only about to start!

THE POST IMAGE RESEARCH CLUSTER & CONCORDIA’S PHOTOGRAPHY DEPARTMENT PRESENT:
AN ARTIST TALK WITH RADEK BROUSIL
WEDNESDAY october 31, 2018 12.30-1:30
Radek Brousil was born in Nitra, in the Slovak republic. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, at the College of Communications in London UK, and the Photography program at Concordia University. He is currently a PhD Research Scholar at the Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague, and an artist in residence at the Darling Foundry, Montreal. He lives and works in Prague and Berlin.
Radek Brousil often mixes objects, sculpture, photography and video in his artistic practice. His focus, however, is based on a broader investigation of photography – namely, on its technical and artistic properties as well as its current usage and socio-economic implications. Brousil is therefore mainly interested in displacements, gestures of appropriation, phenomena of misinterpretation and the non-existence of the “natural world” in the field of contemporary cultural and economic exchanges.
“Office Space” Exhibition | Post-Image member Matthew Brooks
“Office Space consists of large-scale photographs produced in institutional and governmental spaces. Using office furniture and decor as props, varying degrees of mise-en-scène are employed to create uncanny, empty sets. In these semi-fictional environments, the viewer’s sense of the real is disoriented through the manipulation of colour and form, revealing the tensions between reality and photographic representation. Through these obsessive and neurotic interventions, the frustration, rigidity, and absurdity of bureaucracy is revealed and made relatable through a collective experience of office politics and interactions.”
12 octobre – 10 novembre
The opening reception for “Finem Aestatis” is tomorrow afternoon at 2 pm! Featuring work by several artists including post-image members David K. Ross, Thomas Knebühler and Jinyoung Kim.

see you there!
The Post-Image Lab is closed to non-members for the month of July and will resume operations and normal hours to students and non-members in August. Inquiries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org but please note that response time for inquiries will be delayed as the coordinator is also out office for the month of July.
1. Lab Closure
For the month of July, members may still use the lab but there will be no booking system available or technical support. It is on a first come first serve basis. We are well stocked with printing materials but if you still run out of your favourite paper, there is nothing that can be done. If you do use the lab, please shake White and Metallic Silver ink cartridges on the solvent printer.
2. New VR Station
There are a couple new stations at the back of the lab designed for VR research, which is being led by new post-image member Daniel Cross. Please don’t alter the placement of their setup. When the lab reopens at the beginning of August, we can rethink how to design the space for the upcoming academic year.
3. Welcome new members!
A warm welcome to new affiliate, student and faculty members to post-image! We are looking forward to a productive and exciting new year at post-image with several cross-cluster and interdisciplinary events in the works. Please do not hesitate to approach me (Pascha) about ideas you may have for events or questions concerning upcoming cluster activities for the 2018-19 academic year.
4. Upcoming end-of-summer event
We are hoping to have a meet and greet at the end of August or beginning of September at the Post-Image lab. This would be a great opportunity to share event ideas, projects-in-motion and new work among members.
We will also be launching a catalogue of the 2017 print fundraiser to coincide with this event.
More info on this event and how you can participate will be forthcoming in August.
Wishing everyone a safe and relaxing summer break. See you in August!
