Exhibition of drawing work curated byIAMD Graduate Heather Nicol and including work by OCAD U faculty Ian Carr-Harris
Ian Carr-Harris and Yvonne Lammerich, Dave Dyment,
Lee Henderson, Nina Levitt and Jessica Vallentin
+ including selections from the Givins/Shaw School archival collection, and artworks by children.
Curated by IAMD MFA Graduate Heather Nicol

The echoes of children’s voices have long since faded from the halls and classrooms of 180 Shaw Street. This elegant school building has been repurposed, transforming its identity into the innovative Artscape Youngplace. As the passage of time and human interventions threaten to erase the past, collected and saved relics gain importance as portals to memory, nostalgic yearnings, and the teaching of history. Whether cracking open a box of old photographs, looking through a dusty filing cabinet of letters and documents, or double-clicking a Zip file of compressed digital information, the pleasures and provocations of encountering archival content is a catalytic moment of reorder and reappraisal.
Occupying three floors of spacious hallway, this exhibition features new works by artists who have been granted access to the rich Givins/Shaw School archival collection comprised of records and data, photographs of classes and teams, trophies and plaques, scrap books, press clippings, snapshots and more, unpacked from locked closets and an over-stuffed vitrine. This remarkable treasure trove has inspired and provoked creative responses in sculpture, installation, assemblage, text and photo based works. The exhibition also features historical and pedagogic displays, and works by students at Givins/Shaw Jr. Public School.
