Nuit Blanche draws more than 20,000 visitors to OCAD University

 

Tuesday, October 2, 2018 - 5:00pm

Record crowds visited OCAD U during Nuit Blanche 2018 to view FORWARD, an immersive digital work by Daniel Iregui and a group exhibition, Diagrams of Power, at Onsite Gallery.

More than 14,500 visitors came through the doors of 100 McCaul St. to view FORWARD, an installation of two “tunnels” that generate infinite ways to get to a distant point on the horizon. Curated by Linda Columbus, Programs Coordinator, Onsite Gallery, the work was created by Daniel Iregui, a new media artist who creates interactive sculptures, spaces and architectural interventions using technology as a tool and an aesthetic.

Onsite Gallery attracted close to 6,000 visitors for its Diagrams of Power exhibition, which ran from July 11 to September 29, 2018. Curated by Patricio Dávila, Associate Professor, Faculty of Design, OCAD University, the exhibition showcased art and design works using data, diagrams, maps and visualizations as ways of challenging dominant narratives and supporting the resilience of marginalized communities.
