Cindy Baker: Crash Pad

Thursday to Saturday, October 20, 21 and 22 – 10am to 4pm

The Anniversary Gallery, 100 McCaul, second floor

Crash Pad is a performance/installation about the artist’s "failing," disabled, or otherwise socially taboo body. Central to Crash Pad is a large sculptural object modeled after a single-pill blister pack. This pseudo-resting place will exaggerate the the unease of finding a comfortable resting position, and will make up the main element of this quiet performance.

Adrian Stimson: 150 Blows

Saturday, October 22 - 11am to 5pm

The Graduate Gallery, 205 Richmond St.

This performance work reflects upon the 150 years of occupation of Indigenous lands by the Canadian Federation, a British colony, by creating a participatory durational piece called 150 Blows. 

Stimson’s performances often examine identity construction, specifically the hybridization of the Indian, the cowboy, the shaman and the Two Spirit being. Buffalo Boy, The Shaman Exterminator, and The Lord of the Plains are three of his reoccurring personas.

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.
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!
Interested in applying for CGS-M (SSHRC, NSERC) and/or an Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS)? This session will provide students with further information about competitions, timelines and best practices. These are prestigious awards, and all full-time graduate students are encouraged to apply.
