The Learning Zone Gallery presents a group exhibition called Perspectives.

This exhibition was organized by International Eyes, a student group which represents a community of students from culturally diverse backgrounds. It includes work in a variety of mediums, from painting to photography.

Contributors: Kalore Jingmei Cao, Raquel Gouvea Jose Felicia da Costa, Tim Hu, Nataly Kais, Ji Woo Lim, Kaylee Meyer, Tony Mulo, Ehiko Odeh, Michelle Scholz, Zhiyi Qian and Chenjun Zhu.

‘Perspectives’ is an exhibition showcasing the work of international students at OCAD U.

This is a small insight into the diverse body of work that international students are creating that highlights their abilities, personalities and passions.
