Opening Reception - February 3 2016. Mark your Calendars!

A thought provoking and exciting line up of artists to be announced shortly

DJ - Lido Pimienta Known as “Colombian darling” and “Soundsister”, Lido Pimienta jumps back and forth from electronic beats, analog synths and Afro-Colombian rhythms to out-of-this-world chanting. The release of her first album Color LP opened the gate for several collaborations with artists in Canada and around the world, making her one of the most prolific song-writer, lyricist and an improv virtuoso of her generation.

Panel Talk / Discussion Save the date: Wednesday 24 February 2016 

Pixelation: interrogating the ways in which contemporary art and design perpetuate or challenge anti-blackness. This exhibition seeks to explore the ways in which Black identity has been formed, shaped, or erased through visual culture. The overarching purpose of this exhibition is to bring awareness to racial stereotypes, that shape 'what it means to be black'. With awareness, comes responsibility to make change in one's own sphere. The aim is to reclaim representations while creating a space where people are able to talk about uncomfortable topics. How can contemporary art and design be used as a tool for reclamation and decolonization?

Pixelation is generously sponsored by The OCAD U $1,500 Big Ideas Fund, The Office of Diversity, Equity & Sustainability Initiatives, Office of the President, Office of the Vice-President Academic, Faculty of Art, Faculty of Design, Graduate Studies and the OCAD Student Union

 

Food and refreshments will be served.
