OCAD alumus, Christian Bernard Singer’s exhibition incorporates Singer’s trademark materials of earth, moss, and clay all formed into symbols for dance and language – these symbols are then displayed as museum artifacts in ornate wooden cabinets. Singer’s works also raises complicated questions about cultural interpretations, contrasting cultural ideals of possession and renunciation, as well as the problematic notion of placing another culture on display. Cabinet of Curiosities will show in the Dr. Douglas Wright Education Gallery.

20/20—from retrospect to prospect, a participatory Design Wo/ManiFesT.O. for the next decades
20/20—from retrospect to prospect, a participatory Design Wo/ManiFesT.O. for the next decades Design is both an evolving and evocative creative process permeating all aspects of social, economic, and political life, and it is shifting the way our city operates, and functions. With human-centred values and diverse perspectives, advocacy, and calls to action, we are collectively and individually changing the social and physical fabric of Toronto, often with design as the catalyst.
Art and Design Education (ADEL): Community investigated various concerns around how we might achieve a healthier art and design education community at OCAD U.
