Sabbatical Talk by Dr. Barbara Rauch

Rauch, 'mesas' series 2016
Monday, December 4, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Dr. Rauch’s sabbatical report references research activities including 
•    a 2.5 months residency program at SOMA Mexico City, where she worked under the pseudonym of ‘Mesas Collective’;
•    a fellowship with ‘The Anthropocene Curriculum’ at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, in Berlin resulting in a series of workshops and seminars, and international conference presentations in Paris, France, Chicago and Los Angeles;
•    and most importantly Rauch pursued a variety of activities that re-connected her with her studio practice. Rauch deliberately embraced a practice driven by material investigation and considerations of the Anthropocene and questioning the Technosphere.

Art Intersection Meetup: Jeremy Bailey and Midi Onodera

Jeremy Bailey and Midi Onodera are two artists who are engaged with online networks as an intrinsic component of their work. They will present their work as part of the Mobile Experience Lab's  Art Intersection Meetup, a place for artists, moving image-makers, gamers and technologists who are experimenting with art-related digital content and how the moving image is presented in a connected world. Digital culture, social media and networks encourage new ways of storytelling, image making, idea sharing and collaboration. This Meetup celebrates artists and innovators who are embracing change leading the next wave of creativity.

About Jeremy Bailey:


Throughout his career, the Toronto born artist Jeremy Bailey has explored software in a performative context. As Rhizome author Morgan Quaintance has written "Since the early noughties Bailey has ploughed a compelling, and often hilarious, road through the various developments of digital communications technologies. Ostensibly a satire on, and parody of, the practices and language of "new media," the jocose surface of Bailey’s work hides an incisive exploration of the critical intersection between video, computing, performance, and the body."

Specifically, Bailey’s works consist of all manner of performances that exist as videos, software, websites, inventions, institutions and ephemera all created and presented by his alter ego, Famous New Media Artist Jeremy Bailey.

Bailey studied at the University of Toronto from 1998 to 2002 and completed his Masters in Fine Art from Syracuse University in 2006. He has participated in residencies at the Banff Centre in Alberta Canada, FACT in Liverpool UK, and Quartier 21 in Vienna Austria and has been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions internationally.

Exhibition dates: October 17 - 23, 2016

The Great Hall, OCAD U, 2nd floor, 100 McCaul St, Toronto 

OCAD University's Florence Program is proud to present CROSS SECTION, a group exhibition highlighting recent work by twenty-four students working from a wide array of mediums - drawings, prints, collages, paintings, sculpture,installation, photography, sound, video, digital imagery and jewelry. Varying in creative approach, theoretical structure and technical processes, the body of work from these students come together at a cross section as they intersect, coincide, synchronize and exist side-by-side. This international campus offers a facilitated directed study approach where students develop a body of work in a communal studio setting and study art history amidst a backdrop of the Italian Renaissance. In this 2015-16 academic year, the studio component was coordinated by Faculty of Art member Professor Michèle White in the fall semester 2015 and Assistant Professor / CLTA Linda Martinello in the winter semester 2016.

Rising to the Occasion

Rebecca Belmore
Saturday, June 7, 2008 - 4:00am to Sunday, October 5, 2008 - 4:00am

Through powerful images that implicate the body, performances that address history and memory, and gestures that evoke a sense of place, OCAD alumna Rebecca Belmore is known for creating multi-disciplinary works that reveal a long-standing commitment to the politics of identity and representation.

Rebecca Belmore comprises a selection of work that spans the course of her significant career, drawing out connections between early performances and later sculptures, photographs and videos through recurring metaphors that are as provocative as they are poignant. In Belmore’s work, the classical reclining figure, for example, is bound in cloth, suspended or scarred, disrupting an otherwise passive gaze and asking viewers to reflect on their relationship to the practice of looking.

Born in Upsala, Ontario and currently living in Vancouver, Belmore has exhibited her work both nationally and internationally, including two solo touring exhibitions, The Named and the Unnamed, Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Vancouver, 2002 and 33 Pieces, Blackwood Gallery, University of Toronto at Mississauga, 2001. She was Canada's official representative at the Venice Biennale in 2005 and has participated in the Sydney Biennial and the Havana Biennial.

Rebecca Belmore is organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery and curated by Daina Augaitis, chief curator/associate director and Kathleen Ritter, assistant curator.

Venue & Address: 
Vancouver Art Gallery 750 Hornby Street, Vancouver, British Columbia

Running with Concepts: The Choreographic Edition

SEPTEMBER 16-18, 2016


With Julia Bryan-Wilson, Mel Y. Chen, Emily Mast, Julie Pellegrin, Julien Prévieux, Sarah Sharma, and The School for the Movement of the Technicolor People

And presentations by:

Alvin Luong, Olive Mckeon, MORTIFIED (Camilla Singh & Jenn Goodwin), Angela Veronica Wong & Caroline Doherty, Francisco-Fernando Granados & Johanna Householder, Gabriel Levine, Amelia Ehrhardt & Fabien Maltais-Bayda, k.g. Guttman, and Stephanie Anderson, Kirsty Robertson & Shannon Stratton

Co-hosted by Christine Shaw and Ame Henderson

Running with Concepts: The Choreographic Edition is part-workshop, part-conference, part-crit session, part-master class, part-experiment, part-chance composition. It is also part of the Blackwood Gallery’s 2016–2017 exhibition program which animates questions of choreography and sets out to mobilize another set of terms: counterproductivity, co-immunity, choreopolitics, and care.

Performed across the UTM campus, Running with Concepts: The Choreographic Edition takes aim at the multiple connections between art and globalization and asks how we might think about the relation between choreography and politics today without repeating neoliberal demands and constraints. Running with Concepts: The Choreographic Edition will become a rehearsal space for possible ways of entering the social and of positioning oneself with others.


General Registration: $50 (full conference)
One-Day Registration: $15 (Friday), $25 (Saturday or Sunday)
Includes lunch and transport from downtown Toronto
*Free for presenters and current students (with ID)
