A showcase of the Canada Line Poster Exhibition.
A look at Vancouver’s history through the eyes of Design graduates from different decades. This poster exhibition recognizes the pioneering role Emily Carr University played in the development of the cultural identity of Vancouver. In partnership with InTransit BC Public Art.
As symbols that represent time and place, names reflect the prevailing attitude of the culture in which they are given. While full of meaning, the attempt to capture complex traditions in a single word often neglects the numerous, conflicting characteristics of a city and its people.
Like many other cities, Vancouver’s diverse, multicultural background has given way to the creation of several alternate names. These names given in admiration, as matter-of-fact descriptors, or in jest observe the many facets of our local industry, culture and geography. Bestowed by both residents and visitors, they suggest the multitude of histories that collectively define Vancouver.
By Any Other Name considers the unique narratives hidden within some of these alternate names. The exhibition comprises seven Vancouver-based graphic designers, all graduates of Emily Carr University, who occupy an important role in shaping Vancouver’s visual culture. byanyothername.ca

Animated is part of Creative Content - a series of exhibitions and events celebrating the significant contributions of Emily Carr University of Art + Design and its graduates throughout 86 years of Vancouver’s 125 year history. Emily Carr has one of the most recognized university film and animation departments in Canada. This retrospective will reveal the contributions of our talented artists to the significant landscape of Vancouver film & animation and its international reputation.
Emily Carr, under its first incarnation as the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts opened in 1925, and is one of the oldest post secondary institutions in British Columbia. The Vancouver School of Art Animation Department opened in 1968 and is one of the oldest animation schools in Canada. With that in mind we developed Animated, delving back as far as our current archives allowed: to the 1980s when the school changed its location to the newly developed Granville Island and changed its name to Emily Carr College of Art + Design. When Emily Carr opened its doors again, it included a new media department providing courses in animation and film. We have chosen to highlight our animation graduates in this edition of the series.
