Envelopment(s) invites viewers to contemplate the rigor and dynamic processes of artistic practice. The artworks included in this special exhibition, from the 1st year Interdisciplinary Master's in Art, Media and Design cohort at OCAD University, reveal that intentionality in art-making often moves in more than one direction. Through the envelopment of artistic practice we summon new potentials and create opportunities to direct or redirect lines of investigation towards sometimes-unexpected resolutions.

Opening Reception: April 2, 7 to 10 p.m.

Featuring:
Esmaa Adam

Jay Irizawa
