September 19, 2019 - October 11, 2019 - I’m showing recent work in “Treasure” @ISNS Exhibition Space

ISZAF is proud to present “Treasure”, an exhibition featuring 15 artists who have taken the challenge to take photographs of sceneries or objects of any kind that are considered treasures in their definition and in their very own cultural backgrounds. Specifically, all photos are taken with a mobile phone in which artists are encouraged to capture moments. Being genuine, eternal and swift concurrently, the photos selected are expected to inspire you with some sense of your own treasures. 

ISZAF将于ISNS举办其“宝藏”摄影展。此次展览有15位艺术家受邀,他们用记录属于他们生活与文化中珍贵的点点滴滴。与众不同的是,此次展览要求所有作品均由手机拍摄,要求艺术家们在捕捉美好瞬间的同时免去后期修图与加工。真实、永恒且稍纵即逝,我们希望这样的展览也能让您慢慢品味您人生中宝贵瞬间。

Summer 2019 - I am featured in Urban Family Magazine about my work as an Artist & Art Educator

“Ultimately, as a teacher, supporting my students and helping them to achieve their full artistic potential is my primary goal and focus. I help the student achieve their potential in way that fits each student individually. I am available as a mentor o my student and facilitator of learning and help guide them through their projects. I help to encourage them not only as an educator, but through my real-life experience as a working artist. Through this, I provide them with the necessary tools to unleash an exploration of ideas and thoughts behind their work. This is a collaborative experience between myself and my students and is essential for them to achieve their goals as artists.” - Gloria Carnevale

Show Description:

ISZAF is proud to present “Utterance,” an exhibition featuring 14 international artists that have focused their work on the idea of language, a perception or a reality. ISZAF Utterance began with a challenge, where artists were tasked to create artworks inspired by the quote “Language is the most massive and inclusive art we know, a mountainous and anonymous work of unconscious generations” by Edward Sapir. This quote alludes to the relationship between imagery and language and how they work together both implicitly and explicitly to form a communicative engagement for the audience. All works were required to combine an audible component to fuse this play between imagery and language together. The artworks that best represented the main concepts of the show have been selected to create an engaging experience for you to connect with and enjoy.

October 27, 2018 - We're Presenting on "Padlet for Process" @ EdTechGZ

Presenters: Gloria Carnevale, Miranda Godkin and Jennifer Nicklas 

The International School of Nanshan Shenzhen's Arts department have been using Padlet for their IB MYP Arts Process Journals for several years, and would like to share this experience with you!

From documenting conceptual and technical progress to developing reflection, critical analysis, and critiquing skills, Padlet has helped to enhance the journaling process and provide a digital alternative to help match our student's needs. 


October 19, 2018 - November 16, 2018 - I’m showing my work in the ISZAF “Transient in Motion” Exhibition @ ISNS Exhibition Space

ISZAF Transient in Motion began with a challenge, where artists were tasked to create artworks inspired by the quote “All change is not growth, as all growth is not movement” by Ellen Glasgow. This quote alludes to the idea of movement and shadow, through both emotion and motion. We curated this show by examining each art piece’s use of value, variety and vividness. The artworks of 11 artists whose artworks best represented the main concepts of the show have been selected to create an engaging experience for you to connect with and enjoy.

ISZAF《Transient in Motion》从一个挑战开始,艺术家们的创作灵感来自Ellen Glasgow的一句名言“所有的变化不是增长,所有的增长也不是运动”。这句话映射了运动和阴影的概念,通过情感,静态和动态。我们通过衡量每件艺术品的价值、多样性和生动性来策划这次展览。11位艺术家的作品都代表了展览的主要理念,其中最优秀的作品被选中,为您创造一场视觉的盛宴,让你与艺术品交流并享受其中。


Curated by: Gloria Carnevale, ISZAF and the ISNS DP Year 2 Art students

The “Watson Garden” art museum in Taiyuan is the strategic partner of Art Canton. It is a non-profit art museum with important influence in north of China, which is approved by the Taiyuan municipal government. The exhibition is aimed at providing early publicity and promotion for artists who will participate in the 2018 Art Canton Contemporary Art Expo. It is also an important opportunity for Art Canton to seek foreign artists.

May 5, 2018 - I'm presenting at AmCham's International School Expo about "Forging a Community through Education" on behalf of the International School of Nanshan Shenzhen

Gloria’s presentation will highlight how she has engaged and leveraged the Shenzhen community through art and brought real-life experience back to her students. As part of this presentation, Gloria will also be talking about the integration of immersive technology in the classroom.


April 23 - May 12, 2018 - Showing my artwork @ Call + Response Exhibition @ Jardin Orange

This exhibition is made up of a series of small impressions. Each piece of art was sparked by another and born within the discourse of the ISZAF Call & Response challenge. The Challenge involved 30 artists, who together produced 250 artworks, over the course of 2 months, through a series of 3 phases. Each phase was like a ‘game of telephone’; the eggshells whispered to each artist and produced a chain effect. The eggshells provoked the phase 1 artwork, which then inspired the phase 2 artwork, which in turn elicited the phase 3 artwork. The interpretations and misinterpretations of the work produced at each phase were intriguing. The process was powerful because the artists were engaged in the discourse. Community is important. The selected works within this exhibition are vignettes of our visual conversation.


April 13 - May 6, 2018 - Showing my artwork  @ Concurrence: A Photography Show, @ OCT Loft, Shenzhen

“Concurrence” is a photography exhibition organized by ISZAF and curated by Catarina Braga.

With the work of 15 international and local photographers of Shenzhen, the exhibition is conceived as a performative space to see Shenzhen through 32 photographs and everything in-between them.

Facing the impossibility of portraying a city, by the time we make this exhibition, the landscape has already changed. 
The photographs can be thought as an extension of the relationship we have with Shenzhen, and therefore, the exhibition becomes itself that extension. It’s a moment to pause and slow down against the speed of this city, a moment of recollection and dialogue — where each photographer has brought these different moments, details, street scenes, cityscapes,… and we can think about the city as an infinity of possibilities.
Each spectator is invited to walk and look through the exhibition, much like each photographer has photographed and walked through the streets of Shenzhen.

I planned, organized and curated this exhibition along side Brittan Aebischer through  ISZAF. Please read below for details. Media links are below as well. 

Featuring 6 prominent international schools within the city of Shenzhen, the Kuku Chai International Youth Art Exhibition is a group show featuring foreign and international students of all ages 7-18. In collaboration with one of Southern China’s most infamous female visual artists, kuku Chai, students were asked to respond to her work focusing on Kuku Chai’s themes of traditional and contemporary Chinese landscapes, animals, birds, and buildings, while using any medium of their choice. Ten students from each school, of all ages, were selected by their respective art teachers to be represented in this show. It is through the call and response between Kuku Chai and the students, including the reinterpretation of KuKu Chai’s visual themes by the students that makes this exhibition unique and iconic; especially with this exhibition being held in the multi-national and dynamic city of Shenzhen. We invite you to view this amazing work and the poignant visual dialogue between the students and KuKu Chai.

 

Participating Schools:

Featured in Shenzhen Daily: Canadian enjoys teaching art in Shenzhen

Carnevale said to excel at teaching art is to help students with any project that allows them to express themselves, letting students find out their preferred artistic discipline.

“Just because you can’t draw well doesn’t mean you can’t be a good artist,” she said. “You might excel at graphic arts on a computer, abstract art, print-making, or sculpture. Any kind of project that can encourage students to find out which art medium suits them is the best because it helps them gain confidence to pursue it.”
