opening reception September 5 (7-10pm)

Student Exhibition

Curated by Inez Genereux + Corey Moranis

fART (food+ART) is something that looks so good, you want to eat it! This show is a visual feast that consumes all of your senses. For your enjoyment, we have prepared a sweet sizzling stew by melting together a variety of experiences surrounding food.

This show celebrates how our obsession with food brings us together, and delights in that feeling of indulging in one's favourite meal, twice. Today, our consumption is heavily scrutinized. fART embraces junking-out from time to time. What would a deep fried Mars Bar be without a side of Cool Ranch Doritos? We encourage the double dip.

fART is a delectable art experience, one of mid-way esque activities and the nostalgia of snack time. On opening night, we will honour the sensation of when you were young and went to the fun fair, and ate so much cotton candy that you thought your head would explode. A sugar rush so intense, it brings you to euphoria.

Bring a BIG, HUGE appetite and your dancing shoes as SPAWN + BLAKE BLAKELY will be making us grooveisinthefart! Toonie drinks!

Florence Exhibition

Thursday, October 17, 2013 - 9:00pm

An exhibition of student work for the OCAD U Florence Program

Join the most recent cohort of the Florence Program as they share an exhibition of work created while attending this fantastic program abroad.

Meet the students (past and present) from the program and hear about the incredible impact this opportunity has had on their educational experience.

Florence program alumnus Marc O'Brien says it best by stating:
"Being in the Florence program was so critical to my development as an artist, a professional and a human being. Nowhere else can you find such a luscious, educational blend of language, history, culture, autonomy, and family than in the Florence Program. It changed my life. Pure and Simple."
- Marc O'Brien, BDes 2011, Illustration Medal Winner

Excited? Us too! Please register if you plan on joining us.

Presented by OCAD U Development & Alumni Relations
