The OCAD University Curatorial Team will be participating as a cultural partner at the Art Toronto International Art Fair this year. As Canada’s largest international contemporary and modern art fair, Art Toronto will be taking place at the Toronto Metro Convention Centre, from October 26 - 29, 2018. Alongside faculty lead Professor Natalie Waldburger, and coordinator Tak Pham, OCAD U will have a booth at Art Toronto curated by graduate and undergraduate students: Erica Cristobol, Kristi Poole-Adler, Jessica Turner, and McKenna Gray.
This project provides a platform for the curatorial students to display their curation efforts. It also provides the selected artists an entrepreneurial opportunity to sell work, and gain exposure to international markets and galleries. Following an intense selection process, the curatorial team has carefully selected graduate students who define up-and-coming talent in the contemporary art market today: Christine Yunk, Adelaide Thorhallsdottir, Kristin Morthens, Court Gee, Brandon Fujimagari, Julia Balfour, Laura Dawe, Gabrielle Leighton, Josi Smit, Maisha Marshall-Ende, and Mira Marie Pedari.
