Emily Carr University is pleased to welcome David Zink Yi, who will join us in early 2015 as the Audain Distinguished Artist-in-Residence. The Audain Distinguished Artist-in-Residence Program, funded by Michael Audain and the Audain Foundation for the Visual Arts, enables the University to bring the world’s leading contemporary artists to live and work in Vancouver for a one to three month period. Guest artists and visiting lecturers are an integral part of the Emily Carr community – artists complement students’ education, work with existing faculty and bringing new opportunities for collaboration and engagement.
