TRACE is a graduate exhibition brought together by 6 curators and 14 interdisciplinary artists as they launch into their graduate studies at OCAD University — join us at OCAD University’s Graduate Gallery in a celebration of works by established and emerging artists developing their contemporary art and design practices that challenge the concept of TRACE.

 

On Thursday, November 16 at 5 p.m., 205 Richmond’s Graduate Gallery will feature new works in a multimedia exhibition exploring the contingent experience of presence as TRACE, evading the ‘real’ and pointing to its constitutive outside: the unreal. Trace, a sign for everything elusive, has no site, but rather is change of site marked by its erasure, making it disappear in its appearance. International artists Adrienne Matheuszik, Coco Guzman, Dori Vanderheyden, Ellen Snowball, Kirstie McCallum, Kristi Poole-Adler, Lida Shanehchiyan, Lingxiang Wu, Philip Sparks, Randa Reda, Sarah Carlson, Shannon Lee, Tal Sofia, and Vanessa Jackson capture these dynamic themes of TRACE — hinting to the existence of something, a residue we cannot ignore. Light refreshments and appetizers provided.

 

An artist talk will take place at 100 McCaul in Room 187 on Wednesday, November 15 at 12 p.m. featuring artists Sarah Carlson, Lingxiang Wu, and Coco Guzman in a discussion about their individual processes and body of works. Moderated by curator Elizabeth Handley-Derry, the talks will be followed by a question and answer period to encourage insightful engagement. Fellow curators Liz Ikiriko, Panya Clark Espinal, Jeff Tallon, Erica Cristobal and Keiko Hart encourage a dialogue around subverting assumptions and discovering intentions to help identify the investigations taking place in TRACE.

 

The OCAD University Graduate Gallery is home to thesis shows, speaker series, and one of a kind events, making it the primary exhibition space for graduate students and Faculty of OCAD University. The primary gallery space in room 104 is connected by a hallway to the media gallery in room 106 that can be used for projections. In TRACE all spaces will be activated with art, including a live drawing in the grad gallery corridor space by Coco Guzman.
