In 2017, Qureshi received the Art and International Cooperation fellowship at Zurich University of the Arts and is currently a Doctoral Candidate at Aalto University in Finland and Research Fellow at the Center for Arts, Design, and Social Research, Boston.

Amy Swartz:  Down the Rabbit Hole

January 3 – February 11, 2017

Meet the artist: Wednesday, January 25  |  3-5pm

Using incongruous materials, Amy explores synergies between the natural world, consumer culture, fantasy and her own life experience. Similar to a plastic surgeon grafting bone and skin to reconfigure the body, she performs a related type of physical manipulation by conjoining and reforming objects. During this process, she reflects on the complexities that link living things, and in contrast, our attempts to control life through artificial means.

Passed in the Stuck

Passed in the stuck
Saturday, July 19, 2008 - 4:00am to Sunday, August 10, 2008 - 4:00am

While in Europe, OCAD alumna Tanya Cunnington began to examine the roles of the artist, both past and present, and realized that she felt extremely drawn to the past. She began to paint cityscapes as a means to express her strong interest in certain cities as they related to art history.

Passed in the Stuck is comprised of mixed media collages which the artist sees as symbolic of these pasts. They are urban landscapes broken down into pure visual abstraction.
