Join the Ontario College of Art & Design in welcoming ORLAN as its third artist in residence. As part of the residency, ORLAN will deliver a free public lecture on Tuesday, September 30 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Auditorium (Level 1, 100 McCaul Street.)
From plastic surgery interventions and performances to photography and digital works, ORLAN has been a formidable presence in contemporary art for over four decades. Since the 1960s, her work has transcended the numerous “posts” and “isms” of the art world’s different movements, all the while interrogating our bodies and identities, questioning art’s relation to life, and testing the lines between the real and the virtual.

ORLAN’s work has been exhibited around the world and featured in the Paris, Venice, Istanbul, Lyon and Sydney biennials. In 2006–2007, she was a scholar in residence at the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles. Last year, the Musée d’Art Moderne in her hometown of Saint-Étienne, France, organized “Le Récit” (“The Account”), a major retrospective celebrating her sixtieth birthday.

ORLAN teaches at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and the École Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Paris-Cergy, splitting her time between Paris, Los Angeles and New York. She is represented by Galerie Michel Rein (Paris), Ace Gallery (Los Angeles), Stux Gallery (New York), B&D Gallery (Milan), Sjul Gallery (Seoul), and Holmes à Court Gallery (Perth, Australia).

ORLAN’s week-long OCAD residency is part of the Faculty of Art’s Nomadic Residents program which is generously supported by the Partners in Art. Nomadic Residents launched in April 2007 with acclaimed artist Rikrit Tiravanija. In September 2007, the program welcomed the internationally renowned artist Ann Hamilton. ORLAN’s residency is the final installment of the Nomadic Residents program. ORLAN’s visit is additionally supported by the Consulate General of France.
