Off-shore

Sunday, June 8, 2008 - 4:00am to Sunday, June 29, 2008 - 5:00am

Edward Day Gallery is pleased to present a suite of new collograph prints on Kutorani #4 paper by Doug Guildford. The Off-shore Evidence series provides direct impressions of the artist’s crocheted colonies. Guildford states that his crocheted sculptural work "spills from an intuitive, obsessive place, and accommodates my need to task on an ongoing basis and is a means to contemplate, as I justify and record my life".
Guildford is an award-winning printmaker/installation artist who has exhibited his work extensively throughout North America and Europe including The Japan Foundation, Toronto, The Textile Museum, Toronto and the Toyota Gallery, Paris, France.

Colloque international - Faire Œuvre : transparence et opacité

Monday, May 19, 2008 - 4:00am to Thursday, May 22, 2008 - 4:00am

OCAD Faculty member Claire Brunet will present her talk "The context of sculpture generated by digital technology"

The application of a digital language in art will contribute to the development of a broader creative approach and will allow artists to experience a fusion, a spontaneous relationship with their medium of creation, expanding traditional hands-on approach to form, through an innovative use of 3D computer technologies and other relevant digital modeling system technologies.

My sculpture/installation art projects will question and layout the context of sculpture generated by digital technology. My sculpture/installation projects will develop around contemporary environmental issues and will aim to create an interaction with the viewer.

How can nature and science—the message and the medium—demonstrate unlimited creative possibilities?

Call for Submissions: LuminaTO at OCAD

Monday, April 14, 2008 - 4:00am to Friday, April 18, 2008 - 4:00am

This year's LuminaTO festival (June 7, 2008) will focus on Queen West's artistic contribution from the mid 1970s to the mid 1980s... with a special focus on OCA (now OCAD), music, and performance arts. One of my tasks is to help organize the display of artifacts from the day: posters, photos, album covers, newspaper items, weird objects ... all the things that might contextualize the time.

We have the use of the "Great Hall" at OCAD for the day of June 7 for this exhibition of what production creator Martin calls "memorabilia". I am asking for contributions to this exhibition... anything that might evoke the period that you would be willing to share for a day.

If you are interested in submitting an artifact, please obtain a form for acknowledgment and return information from Kym Pruesse, Professor, Liberal Studies, OCAD at kpruesse@faculty.ocad.ca, and drop off your submission in an envelope clearly marked with the lenders’ name and contact information to the LuminaTO box in the Faculty of Liberal Studies office, Room 315, 100 McCaul Street, Toronto. The office is open Monday Friday, 9 am to 5 pm. All artifacts will be returned!

Also, any volunteer help in managing the installation and take down would be welcome. Alumni and student involvement would be very helpful.

Artificial Synesthesia

AS invite
Tuesday, January 8, 2008 - 5:00am to Friday, January 18, 2008 - 5:00am

Synesthesia is the experience of one sense evoking another. Here it refers to the unification of aural and visual senses. The presented works are the reflection of the individual's unique explorations in the objectification of sounds and music into two dimensional surface.

Artificial Synesthesia features the work of Saba Bushnaq, Trang Dang, Margaret Nieradka and Sara Shadkami.

Interim Committee for Surface and/or Planar Re-adjustment

Wednesday, October 24, 2007 - 4:00am to Saturday, November 10, 2007 - 5:00am

Traditionally, painting completely obscures its ground, creating an
illusion that the support is not there at all. Framing delineates
between that which is painting and that which is supposedly neutral or
white cube space. The work in this exhibition will emphasize the
site and explore the experience of architectural strata, structure and
composition. Interim Committee for Surface and/or Planar Re-adjustment
is an installation-painting project with an interest in space, place,
location and layout featuring the work of recent graduates Charles
Beamish, Cameron Buy, Stephanie Curtis, Randall Gagne and Karen Kraven.
