As part of Shakespeare Week last week in Florence Italy, OCAD University Florence program students curated and presented the exhibition Staging Reality, a series of contemporary art responses to Othello, at the British Institute of Florence.

“It was a great opportunity, with a large audience of Florentines, expatriate residents and visitors offering excellent exposure for our student's work,” said OCAD U Professor Martha Ladly, who is currently Visiting Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence. “Student curator Sarah England is to be especially congratulated.”
