Displaying the work of Juanita Lee Garcia, this MFA Curatorial Thesis investigates the effects of curatorial and exhibition design strategies on the ability to engage an audience.

Curated by Maggie Lever, this exhibit is divided into two atmospheres, where viewers will be asked through surveys and focus groups about their experience interacting with Juanita Lee Garcia's labour intensive, vibrant and colourful prints at the Milk Glass Gallery.

This exhibit will be open from March 7 - March 13 from 12:00pm to 4:00pm daily.

OPENING RECEPTION will be held from 7:00pm to 10:00pm on Wednesday, March 8 at Milk Glass Gallery.

For a chance to learn about curatorial practices and participate in this research, focus groups will be held:
Friday, March 10 from 11:00am to 12:00pm
Saturday, March 11 from 11:00am to 12:00pm
Monday, March 13 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm

If you are interested in participating in a focus group to discuss your opinions and experience relating to this exhibit, please RSVP to maggie.OCADU@gmail.com. **

Juanita Lee Garcia, born in Bogota Colombia and currently based in Toronto, employs strategies of repetition in her process, and repurpose in her image selection to conceptually and materially investigate the potential, and limits, of ethnic décor in consumer culture. She explores the history and potential of the image and material, their cultural and social association, and aesthetic feel generated in relation to the public, private, and consumer spaces related to the consumption of cultural identity - specifically that of the Latino. Lee Garcia’s artistic practice shifts between sculptural and conceptual work that mines simple gestures, such as slicing, inserting, folding or continuous printing to build new and abstract forms that are at once unfamiliar yet comforting.
