Indigenous Visual Culture at OCAD U welcomes Barry Ace as our Winter 2018

Nigig Visiting Artist in Residence.

The Nigig Visiting Artist Residency, hosted by the Indigenous Visual Culture

Program at OCAD University, is a program that provides an opportunity for an

Indigenous artist to visit OCAD University for a 3-4 week period to focus on a

short-term project and explore in a collaborative environment, issues impacting

their work. The visiting artist will engage and interact with students and faculty in

the capacity of mentorship, critique, lecture and a public workshop /

demonstration.

The Nigig Visiting Artist Residency supports the dynamism located in Indigenous

contemporary art and design practices and is a tremendous educational

opportunity for the artist and students.
