Indigenous Visual Culture hosts artist Michael Belmore for its inaugural Nigig Visiting Artist Residency @ OCAD U Student Gallery from November 2 -20.

The Nigig Visiting Artist Residency, hosted by the Indigenous Visual Culture Program at OCAD University, is a new program that provides an opportunity for an Indigenous artist to visit OCAD University for a 3-week period to focus on a short-term project and explore, in a collaborative environment, issues impacting their work. The visiting artist will engage and interact with students and faculty in the capacity of mentorship, critique, lecture and a public workshop / demonstration. The Nigig Visiting Artist Residency supports the dynamism located in Indigenous contemporary art practice and is a tremendous educational opportunity for the artist and students.

Michael Belmore is a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts and graduated with an A.O.C.A. in sculpture/ installation from Ontario College of Art & Design in 1994. Belmore's work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is represented in the permanent collections of various institutions and numerous private collections. His most recent exhibitions include Land, Art, Horizons, North American Native Museum, Zurich, Shapeshifting: Transformations in Native American Art at the Peabody Essex in Salem, MA, Close Encounters: The Next 500 Years, an international exhibition of contemporary indigenous art in Winnipeg, MB and HIDE: Skin as Material and Metaphor at the National Museum of the American Indian – George Gustav Heye Centre in New York.
