Sites of Reconstruction - Opening Reception

Image by Jawa El-Khash
Friday, November 17, 2017 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Ignite Gallery, formerly known as OCAD University’s Student Gallery, is excited to open its third show in its new gallery space in Kensington Market with Sites of Reconstruction, a group exhibtion curated by Karina Iskandarsjah and featuring work by Jawa El-KhashQendrim HotiMarcus A. Gordon, and Nikole Hidalgo.

Their interdisciplinary practices allude to the complexity of cultural hybridity propelled by contemporary, digital diasporas. They also examine processes of translation in geopolitics by reconstructing and producing environments that exist in a liminal space. Various screens act as portals to parallel worlds where the real, surreal, and imaginary overlap.

We invite you to join us for the opening of this new exhibition on Friday, November 17 from 6 to 9 p.m. The artists and curator will be in attendance. The event is free and open to the public.

The exhibition runs through December 9, 2017.
Ignite Gallery is located at 165 Augusta Avenue (in the heart of Kensington market).

We look forward to seeing you there!

Ignite Gallery, formerly known as OCAD University’s Student Gallery, is excited to open its second show in its new gallery space in Kensington Market with Galaxy Champion Fun Zone™, a two-person exhibition by recent alumni Qendrim Hoti and Max Lupo.

"Galaxy Champion Fun Zone™" uses the video game technology of the past three decades to create an interactive installation. By using hacked and modified video games, Hoti and Lupo insert personal migrant histories into existing virtual worlds as a means to recontextualize their familiar contents. They invite visitors to play these games as a way to explore these alternate characters and environments.

And we invite you to join us for the opening of this new exhibition on Friday, October 13 from 6 to 9 p.m. The artists will be in attendance. The event is free and open to the public.

The exhibition runs through November 4, 2017.

Ignite Gallery Launch + Inaugural Show Reception

Low Hanging Fruit
Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 7:00pm to 11:00pm

Ignite Gallery, formerly known as OCAD University’s Student Gallery, is excited to open its new gallery space in Kensington Market with “Low Hanging Fruit (The Hungry Lion Throws Itself on the Antelope),” a group exhibition featuring work by Emily Grace Harrison, Cristine Yunyk, Coutney Gillatly, and Owen Marshall.

“Low Hanging Fruit” is an immersive installation featuring sculpture, painting, drawing, and animation works that come together to form a pop-dystopian garden environment. Bright colours and multiple narratives overwhelm the senses, referencing the artificiality of curated urban gardens while challenging the “seriousness” of the white cube.

We invite you to join us to celebrate both the relaunch of the gallery and this new exhibition on Wednesday, September 20 from 7 to 11 p.m. The artists will be in attendance. The event is free and open to the public.

The exhibition runs through September 30. Ignite Gallery is located at 165 Augusta Avenue (in the heart of Kensington market).

Reflections on Culture and Identity opening reception

Poster
Tuesday, January 5, 2016 - 11:00pm to Wednesday, January 6, 2016 - 1:00am

For the final week of the acclaimed exhibition Kent Monkman: The Rise and Fall of Civilization, the Gardiner Museum will mount a lobby display of works by students in the Sheridan College Ceramics Program and in the Bead & Read Group and Indigenous Visual Culture Program at OCAD University.

Join us for the opening of an exhibition of works by students from the Sheridan College Ceramics Program, and a collaborative project created by students from the Bead & Read group and the
Indigenous Visual Culture Program at OCAD University, in response to workshops led by artists Joanna O. Bigfeather and Jim Rivera from the Institute of American Indian Arts (Sante Fe, NM) and Kent Monkman’s The Rise and Fall of Civilization. This project was made possible with the generous support of the US Consulate General in Toronto.

Inspired by Kent Monkman’s large-scale diorama highlighting the decimation of the North American bison population, the lobby installation, entitled Reflections on Culture and Identity, was created in collaboration with two artists from the Institute of American Indian Arts in Sante Fe, New Mexico—Joanna Bigfeather and Jim Rivera. Funded by the US Consulate of Toronto, Bigfeather and Rivera led workshops where students were able to explore the commonalities and differences between Indigenous visual arts practices in Canada and the United States. The results reflect a rich exploration of identity, shared history, and artistic expression.

Reflections on Culture and Identity will be on display in the lobby from January 5 to 12, 2016. Kent Monkman: The Rise and Fall of Civilization closes January 10, 2016.
