Biography

Working in photography, intermedia and installation, Arnold Koroshegyi is an award-winning artist who has exhibited across Canada and the United States. Koroshegyi's practice and research interests converge around the impermanence of place and the marginal in our shifting social and physical landscapes.

Approach to Teaching

In teaching university students, I seek to foster an open-minded learning environment where strong art-making practices intersect with critical discourse. When supporting students to develop their artistic practice, I encourage them to engage with their work on three fundamental levels: aesthetic, historical/cultural and technical.  As an instructor, I believe it is important to offer support and direction to students on a continual basis.  I believe that a gathering of diverse opinions and different approaches to art helps create an atmosphere in which students are able to make informed aesthetic decisions about their work.
