Artist Ryan Gander: 2016 Nomadic Resident

Monday, February 22, 2016 - 5:00am to Friday, February 26, 2016 - 5:00am

The Faculty of Art is pleased to welcome internationally renowned London-based conceptual artist Ryan Gander as OCAD University’s 2016 Nomadic Resident. Gander will be a guest of the university from February 22 to 26, presenting a public talk and collaborating with students on a project and exhibition.

“Gander’s diverse and cross-disciplinary inquiries stimulate deep reflection and a critique of art that will surely galvanize and inspire many of our students, faculty and staff,” said Vladimir Spicanovic, Dean of the Faculty of Art. “We invite the public to experience Gander’s playful, yet questioning, take on art and education.”

Public Talk: LAX (Loose Associations X)
Tuesday, February 23, 7 p.m.
OCAD University Auditorium, Room 190, 100 McCaul St.

The talk sits on the border between lecture, performance and presentation. Reminiscent of an informal conversation amongst friends in a pub, its subjects roam aimlessly, linked only by seemingly trivial facts. The work attempts to question the use, interpretation and regurgitation of knowledge and information within common educational models.

Admission is free, seating is limited

Exhibition: Auto-Abstraction and Happenstance in Art Making
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 25, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
OCAD University, Ada Slaight Gallery, 2nd floor, 100 McCaul St.

During his residency, Gander will be working on a collaborative project with students exploring the idea of enforcing a methodology to creating art. Auto-Abstraction and Happenstance in Art Making is about finding systems and devices that exist in the everyday world that create art through happenstance.

The Nomadic Residents program is made possible by the generous support of the Jack Weinbaum Family Foundation. Supporting partners include the Impact Collective, Scrap Metal Gallery and the Musée d'art contemporain.

Ryan Gander’s complex and unfettered conceptual practice is stimulated by queries, investigations or what-ifs, rather than strict rules or limits. Language and storytelling play an overarching role in his work, not least in his series of Loose Association lectures or in his attempt to slip a nonsensical, palindromic new word, ‘mitim’, into the English language. Born in Chester in 1976, Gander lives and works in London.  

About Nomadic Residents – International Residencies at OCAD University
Launched in 2006, Nomadic Residents aims to inspire and influence the OCAD University community and the public by featuring artists and thinkers from around the world whose work questions issues such as travel, mobility, displacement, dislocation, and homelessness, as well as the speed or instability of modern life. In bringing these innovative and diverse individuals to take up temporary residence at OCAD U, Nomadic Residents joins here to there, the local to the global and the provisional and the permanent.
