Danish Architect Kolja Nielsen from CEBRA at OCAD University

 Kolja Nielsen
Wednesday, January 11, 2017 - 7:00pm

CEBRA is a multidisciplinary Danish architecture office founded in 2001 by architects Mikker Frost, Carsten Primdahl and Kolja Nielsen. It's work is the alchemy of human empathy and architectural expression. It stems from the notion that the ordinary is the means of the extraordinary - and solving a program is merely a part of creating a solution. 

Some of CEBRA's projects include the award-winning residential complex The Iceberg, the Experimentarium Science Center, the masterplan for NYE, the sustainable suburb of the future, and a series of innovative school development project SKUB.

Please join us in this special lecture with Architect Kolja Nielsen, Founder Partner and CEO at CEBRA.

An Exhibition of the Weird & Bizarre: The OCAD U Library is proud to host Far Out, a multidisciplinary exhibition that explores unconventional and alternate realities. A diverse group of OCADU student and alumni artists present works which feature quirky or peculiar representations of people, memories or places and images or objects that may cause disbelief. We hope these works resonate in our Library, a space which aims to be an environment for questioning, investigating and challenging traditional forms of information and knowledge.

Featuring drawing, painting, collage, photography, video and sculpture works by Adrienne Crossman, Ana Jofre, Andre Kan, Emily Waknine, Lucas Johnson, Marta Chudolinska, Petar Boskovic, Sam Pedicelli, Sarah Munro, Tara Dorey, and Yan Wen Gillian Chang.

Call for Submissions: A Multidisciplinary Conference on Feminist Art

Feminist Art Conference (FAC) is a Toronto-based organization that brings together artists, academics and activists to consider feminist issues through art. Founded in 2013
by artist Ilene Sova, FAC began initially as an event to link feminist artists with each other, as well as to provide a forum in which to discuss our content. A call for organizing help was included in the first call for submissions and a large committee
was formed to organize FAC 2013 on March 9th for International Women's Day. The first Feminist Art Conference caught the interest of over 70 participating artists and 175 attendees from Canada and the US. With astounding interest both nationally and internationally, the FAC Committee made an on-going commitment to facilitating interdisciplinary and inclusive arenas for feminist art.

The mission for the Feminist Art Conference (FAC) was inspired by the recent spate of attacks on women’s and transgender rights in Canada, the US and abroad. Issues such as rape culture, trans phobia, racism, violence, media representation, cultural appropriation, reproductive rights, environmental degradation, impact on Aboriginal lands, missing and murdered Indigenous women, and Islamophobic policies are areas of deep concern. These infringements on our right to agency and independence have been occurring in alarming numbers in our governments, in the media and in our communities. This conference provides an opportunity for these issues to be explored and communicated artistically in a unique and inclusive space that encourages sharing, creating and discussing. In the centuries old tradition of people organizing, we believe that by coming together and communicating about these issues through our artistic practice, that we can initiate progressive change.

We aim to showcase like-minded, multi-disciplinary art including: visual art, film, theatre arts, music, dance, design, spoken word and literature. We will create a space that is celebratory, positive, intellectually engaging and provocative. We are committed to this space being trans inclusive, antiracist, and intersectional. Furthermore, by providing an opportunity for feminist artists to meet and share their work, we believe we can provide opportunities for networking and future artistic collaboration that can inspire social change and empowerment. We have the vision that the ripple effect from this type of artistic sharing and learning can provoke positive transformations in both our communities and our minds.

Submission Deadline: January 8
