Join us for a free guided tour of Onsite Gallery's exhibition, How to Breathe Forever. This tour will be conducted in Farsi, led by Setayesh Babaei, multidisciplinary artist and designer in her final year at OCAD University in Environmental Design.

How to Breathe Forever underlines the importance and interconnectedness of air, animals, coral, humans, insects, land, plants and water. The belief that everything in the universe has a place and deserves equal respect is the core of this exhibition and positions our relations with others — including the natural world — as active and reciprocal. The artwork invites you to consider a personhood that attentively collaborates and exchanges with all living things.

 

Setayesh Babaei is a multidisciplinary artist and designer in her final year at OCAD University in Environmental Design. She’s previously attended the University of Art in Isfahan, Iran and Community College of Art and Design in Liverpool, England. Currently, her area of focus is on Toronto’s ravine system and its relationship with the City’s urban fabric.

 

Onsite Gallery is the flagship professional gallery of OCAD U and an experimental curatorial platform for art, design and new media. Visit our website for upcoming public events. The gallery is located at 199 Richmond St. W, Toronto, ON, M5V 0H4. Telephone: 416-977-6000, ext. 265.

20/20—from retrospect to prospect, a participatory Design Wo/ManiFesT.O. for the next decades Design is both an evolving and evocative creative process permeating all aspects of social, economic, and political life, and it is shifting the way our city operates, and functions. With human-centred values and diverse perspectives, advocacy, and calls to action, we are collectively and individually changing the social and physical fabric of Toronto, often with design as the catalyst.
