Similarly, In the field of forensics, Spoliation refers to the destruction or material alteration of evidence, or to the failure to preserve property for another’s use as evidence, in pending or reasonably foreseeable litigation. This exhibition aims to bear witness and trace the declaration and demise of twenty nine shipping skids as vernacular institutional stabilizers for the Art Gallery of Ontario and Bank of Nova Scotia.

OCAD University's Sculpture/Installation Program is presenting a series of seventeen exhibitions featuring the multi-media artworks of its 4th-year Thesis students in professional galleries in Toronto. This series is made possible by the generous support of the Nora Vaughan Bequest to the Sculpture/Installation program and of the Faculty of Art Innovation Fund.
