The Laxgiik Convocation Robe: Luke Parnell & Selected Prints by Working Title Press

Curated by Erica Crisobal

The Laxgiik Convocation Robe is an installation created in the style of a Northwest coast Indigenous Chilkat blanket. This project is capturing the spirit in which these prestigious blankets are given: the spirit of reciprocity. Prints will be sold and removed from the installation one by one; the Robe will be ever changing until the last print is sold. 

Proceeds will be donated to Printmaking, Publications, Sculpture/Installation & Indigenous Visual Culture programs at OCAD U.

For furniture makers, it is not always the object alone that is pursued. As students at OCAD University, we are encouraged to look beyond the final object, to explore and to develop our thinking around the context. The role of furniture as a medium for personal expression, as a reflection of social and cultural norms, and as an influence upon human behaviour becomes the focal point. This exhibition presents original furniture pieces that take these broader discussions into consideration. Growth requires exploration, the goal is to plant the seeds of passion rather than ego. This annual exhibition of furniture created by the students of OCAD University is now in its eighth year and has become a valued tradition within the school’s design department.
