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

Shannon Bool is inspired by literature, psychology, art history and decoration, among other topics, and she often works with unusual processes such as silk painting, photograms or collaboration with female prisoners. A 2004 master’s graduate of Germany’s prestigious Städelschule, Bool has a practice that draws on arthistorical studies of surface and ornamentation. Her work was featured in 

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. Barnicke Gallery. She currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany. www.danielfariagallery.com/artists/shannon-bool
