Diagrams of Power showcases the politics of data visualization

Thursday, June 21, 2018

Opening July 11, Onsite Gallery’s newest exhibition, Diagrams of Power,features art and design works that use data, diagrams, maps and visualizations to challenge dominant narratives and support the resilience of marginalized communities. 

The expansive exhibition features the work of eighteen prominent artists, designers, researchers, cartographers, activists and collectives: Joshua Akers, The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project, Josh Begley, Joseph Beuys, Vincent Brown, Bureau d'études, Department of Unusual Certainties, W. E. B. Du Bois, Estudio Teddy Cruz + Fonna Forman, Forensic Architecture, Iconoclasistas, Julie Mehretu, Lize Mogel, Ogimaa Mikana, Margaret Pearce, Laura Poitras, Philippe Rekacewicz and Visualizing Impact.

Curated by Patricio Dávila, Associate Professor in OCAD University’s Faculty of Design, the exhibition makes visible both ‘what’ gets represented, and ‘who’ is doing the representing. “Maps, diagrams and visualizations are both artifacts and processes — they are tools that tell a story,” said Dávila. “They create ways to bring people and objects together in the telling of that story, with the outcomes made available to be viewed and inspected, and also performed so they can be heard and felt. Each creator uses this mode to tell inconvenient stories that upset and resist the status quo.”

Diagrams of Power opens with a free, public reception on Wednesday, July 11 from 6 to 9 p.m., and continues through to the early morning of September 30, 2018, including the evening of Nuit Blanche Toronto (Saturday, September 29, 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. on Sunday, September 30). 

A complete list of participating creator biographies is available at https://www2.ocadu.ca/event/diagrams-of-power.

Tables, Chairs and Other Unrelated Objects

Tables, Chairs and Other Unrelated Objects 7
Wednesday, January 10, 2018 - 1:00pm to Wednesday, January 24, 2018 - 6:00pm

Over the years, Tables, Chairs & Other Unrelated Objects has become a growing tradition within the school’s design department. For its seventh edition, and as part of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival, the exhibition will be hosted by Artscape Daniels Spectrum for the first time ever, while Ignite Gallery will concurrently showcase works from this past year’s cohort. The exhibition is curated by Ellie Oram and Jasmin Liu with the input of our long time sponsor Monarch Plywood and the furniture design faculty. 

For furniture makers, it is not always the object alone that is pursued. The role of furniture is explored; as a medium for personal expression, as a reflection of social and cultural norms, and as an influence upon human behaviour becomes the focal point. This exhibition presents original furniture pieces that take these broader discussions into consideration. Growth requires exploration, the goal is to plant the seeds of passion rather than ego.
