OCAD University's Florence Program is hosting a Visiting Artist + Speaker Series which brings six international artists, critics and gallerists to our international campus to engage in artist talks, critiques and individual studio visits. This unique opportunity offers students insight into how a successful international practice is developed as well receiving critical feedback on their independent studio work. 

MARCH 9  SHANNON BOOL

Phaidon’s 2005 anthology Vitamin D: New Perspectives on Drawing and has shown widely in international venues, including CRAC Alsace, Bonner Kunstverein, MMK Museum für Modern Kunst, Sprengel Museum and Justina M.
