Location

Graduate Gallery

The opening reception for  "Inviting the Outside In" takes place on April 25 at the OCAD Graduate Gallery, from 6-9pm. The exhibition itself runs from April 23-30, 2019. 

 

Kirstie McCallum is an interdisciplinary artist. Her work is process-based, exploring the behavior and expressive qualities of materials that she works with over long periods of time. "Inviting the Outside In" is an installation composed of precarious structures and ephemeral sculptures made from plant-based pigments, wood, plaster, and found objects. By conceptually dislocating elements from "the outdoors" and framing them in the human-centric space the gallery, the exhibition explores the the boundaries of our thinking about the power of human and non-human actions.
