The works in gestures were created by student artists in the Jack Weinbaum Family Foundation Global Experience Project (GEP), an expansive initiative by the Faculty of Art designed to explore and build Canada’s prominence in global communities of art and culture.

In Fall 2018, nine OCAD U students undertook a studio seminar course based on the practice of international artist and activist Maria Thereza Alves, taught by Professor Min Sook Lee. In October, Alves visited our campus to engage with the OCAD U community in a series of workshops, seminars, lectures and studio experiences. During the holiday season, in December, Alves hosted OCAD U students at her home and studio in Naples, Italy. The Naples experience included visits to museums, archives, established and independent galleries, art academies, artist studios, artisan workshops, and churches where important artifacts are kept.
