OCADU Graduate Students Represented at Art Toronto 2018

 

Friday, September 14, 2018

The OCAD University Curatorial Team will be participating as a cultural partner at the Art Toronto International Art Fair this year. As Canada’s largest international contemporary and modern art fair, Art Toronto will be taking place at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre, from October 26 - 29, 2018. Alongside faculty lead Professor Natalie Waldburger, and coordinator Tak Pham, OCAD U will have a booth at Art Toronto curated by graduate and undergraduate students: Erica Cristobol, Kristi Poole-Adler, Jessica Turner, and McKenna Gray.

This project provides a platform for the curatorial students to display their curation efforts. It also provides the selected artists an entrepreneurial opportunity to sell work, and gain exposure to international markets and galleries. Following an intense selection process, the curatorial team has carefully selected graduate students who define up-and-coming talent in the contemporary art market today: Christine Yunk, Adelaide Thorhallsdottir, Kristin Morthens, Court Gee, Brandon Fujimagari, Julia Balfour, Laura Dawe, Gabrielle Leighton, Josi Smit, Maisha Marshall-Ende, and Mira Marie Pedari.

Winning designs in 'I Voted' sticker competition
In the lead up to the upcoming 2019 federal election, OCAD University and Instagram have teamed up to encourage Canadians to participate in the election. This past spring, OCAD and Instagram launched the “I Voted” sticker competition, which provided design students at OCAD U and NSCAD with an opportunity to design an Instagram Story sticker that will allow Canadians to share their voting experience with the rest of the Instagram community. The sticker will also link to timely Election Day information on when and where Canadians can vote.
