Plethora Artist Guild is comprised of a group of students and emerging artists who see a need for expansion and experimentation beyond the definitions of post modernism into Meta-modernism. Our collective focuses on Remediation, Collaboration, Experimentation and Collage. We aim to create a community that engages interdisciplinary practice and research by welcoming different media and processes.

Plethora is about:

  • Collaboration
  • Experimentation (use of different media)
  • Craftsmanship
  • Remediation
  • Collage (within the work or media)
  • Expanding experience
  • Collective influence
  • Public engagement
  • Meta-modernism

As a collective, we provide exposure and awareness to unrecognized talents/ ideas within the city of Calgary through hosting events and creating opportunities for those who are students and emerging artist in hopes of increasing the arts community within the city. We provide feedback (to all those who apply), experience and exposure; as well as posting theories and articles of current events in the realm of contemporary art.
