INTAC SILENT AUCTION

Monday, March 21, 2016 - 4:00am to Saturday, April 9, 2016 - 4:00am

INTAC (International Art Collaborations) is a network allowing those of us at OCAD University in Toronto, Canada to create collaborative artworks with partner universities in South Korea, India, Germany, Japan and Finland.

Each year INTAC curates a culminating exhibition to show the final collection of works. This year INTAC has been given the opportunity to install the exhibition in Toronto, Canada and Tampere, Finland

Although installing two shows of this scale is an incredibly exciting and welcomed opportunity, the printing and organizing of these events will be a costly endeavor. The group has therefore organized a silent auction to help cover some of the costs involved.

A silent auction will be set up on the second floor of 100 McCaul in the hallway South of Ada Slaight Gallery. If you are interested in any of these items, please write down your bid and email address/ contact information, along side which item you are bidding on. The silent auction runs from March 21st- April 9th. The winner of each item will be contacted by the April 10th. In Ada Slaight Gallery, we have our INTAC group show installed which includes work from students all over the world.

Please join us for our opening party Thursday March 24th from 6-9pm.

 

Venue & Address: 
100 McCaul St., Ada Slaight Gallery (2nd Floor)
