OCAD U graduate students of curatorial studies, Collective 7511, is pleased to announce, thresholds, a multi-media exhibition featuring selected works by graduate students in Interdisciplinary Art, Media and Design (IAMD): Valerie Carew, Mille Isrealsen, Wensi Li, Bindu Mehra, Amy Meleca, Esmaa Mohamoud, Yasemin Oncu, Ryan Pechnick, Tamara Skubovius, Ashley Snook, Kimberley White, Jennifer Wigmore, Richard Williams and Garnet Willis.
thresholds is an open investigation into the contingencies of human experience and expression through various forms and formats of art, media and design. In particular, thresholds explores how the interplay between the absence and presence of the body marks the negotiation of physical, political and/or psychic spaces, and considers how we might interpret contested meanings of difference as both liminal and mediated. In order to highlight and critically engage states of emergence, absence, transformation, being and becoming, thresholds offers an assemblage of diverse artistic works that collectively challenge the mutable boundaries of space, time, emotion, identity, ideology, perception, technology and the body.
The curators of Collective 7511 are: Archana Dalmia, Jennifer Lorraine Fraser, Suzanne Fulbrook, Erica Manetta, Tak Pham, Barbora Raceviciute, Alana Traficante, Kimberley White, and Sylvia Zhang.
Collective 7511 would like thank our sponsor, Above Ground Art Supplies, for their generous donation to the exhibition.
