Among the hundreds of artists exhibiting throughout the streets for Nuit Blanche Toronto on October 1, 2016 from 7pm to 7am, are a collection of current and recent graduates of the Interdisciplinary Master’s in Art, Media and Design program.
Valerie Carew, Anna Kovler, and Garnet Willis (alumni) have work included in the Fly By Night exhibition at the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen St.). This exhibition “will showcase temporary installations with a particular focus on adaptive and ephemeral performance and installation.”
Current IAMD student Julian Majewski’s #TeeterTotter will be installed on the front lawn at Artscape Youngplace (180 Shaw St). Majewski’s “main interest in this project is how the #teetertotter encourages interaction while spreading a subtle yet powerful message towards celebrating DIY culture and aesthetic realization through recycling, repurposing, and scavenging.”
In addition, Michael Prokopow, Interim Dean, Graduate Studies is co-curator alongside Janine Marchessault of OBLIVION, one of the four city-produced exhibitions. Located in Nathan Phillips Square and City Hall there are three featured projects by Philip Beesley, Director X, and Floria Sigismondi (also an OCAD U alumni).
