Useless Beauty, curated by OCAD Professor Johanna Householder and Jennifer Rudder, features work by artists KC Adams, Lois Andison and David Krippendorff that addresses notions of hybridity, gender, race, beauty, utility and fashion. The exhibition is presented in part as a response to ORLAN’S week-long residency at OCAD (part of the OCAD Professional Gallery’s Nomadic Residents program), and her video reading, presented at approximately 9 p.m.

About ORLAN, Nomadic Resident
From plastic surgery interventions and performances to photography and digital works, ORLAN has been a formidable presence in contemporary art for over four decades. Since the 1960s, her work has transcended the numerous “posts” and “isms” of the art world’s different movements, all the while interrogating our bodies and identities, questioning art’s relation to life, and testing the lines between the real and the virtual.

ORLAN joins OCAD as its third artist-in-residence in its Nomadic Residents program from September 29 to October 3, presenting a free public lecture on Tuesday, September 30, 6:30 p.m. For details and additional information about ORLAN, please visit www.ocad.ca.
