“mapping a 50 kilometer loop on the rugged coastline of eastern Canada; situated in historic outport communities of Newfoundland; stimulating exploration and imagination”

We are pleased to announce Bonavista Biennale 2017, a contemporary visual art exhibition launching this summer on the Bonavista Peninsula. Curators Catherine Beaudette and Patricia Grattan bring together works by 25 leading Newfoundland and other Canadian artists for Canada’s 150th anniversary. Presented in non-gallery sites (micro-brewery, fishstore, old schoolhouse, seal plant, beach, etc) the Biennale promises a unique encounter with this spectacular area where history and traditional culture combine with art by both newer and established artists: Catherine Blackburn,  Marlene Creates, John Hartman, Iris Hauessler, Dil Hildebrand, Ned Pratt, Reinhard Reitzenstein and more.

A project of 2 Rooms Contemporary Art Projects, Bonavista Biennale 2017 is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, the Government of Canada150 Fund, the Newfoundland Arts Council and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, Fishers Loft, corporate sponsors, local businesses and individual donors.  Bonavista Biennale 2017 has been selected as one of Canadian Art magazine’s “20 Shows We Want to See In 2017.”

Open life drawing session offered by the OCAD U Alumni Association
Look Inside Canada’s largest university of art and design. Bring your friends, family and supporters and take a studio tour, watch students as they work, or talk with faculty and staff. OCAD University will provide a glimpse of emerging trends, and where art and design practice is making new connections.
Call for artist submissions during Social Justice Week programming Oct 2019. Co-curators Michelle Beck and Dana Snow are seeking submissions from artists focused on climate justice, which can manifest as: imagined futures, stories concerning the earth and the tracks we leave on her, and concepts and strategies that help activate and mobilize communities.
Visit the lobby of 100 McCaul from October 21 to 25 to browse hundreds of gently-used art and design books and more! All proceeds support the library.
OCAD University’s Faculty of Art is hosting a group exhibition focusing on climate justice, opening October 21, and culminating in a panel titled “Creative action during climate crisis,” on November 1. The submission-based exhibition, co-curated by Michelle Beck and Dana Snow, focuses on the idea of a multispecies interconnectivity that makes every organism necessary to one another in their surrounding environs. Messmates are companions – in Latin “cum panis” – who share bread and rely on each other for survival. 
A workshop rooted in oral history and community collaboration, Talking Treaties artfully shares local Indigenous history and awareness.
feelSpace is seeking artworks for our inaugural online exhibition that deals with connections and relationships in digital spaces. Submissions are due on October 21st!
