Proud At OCAD U Art Show

Monday, April 9, 2018 - 11:00am to Monday, April 23, 2018 - 9:00pm

Proud at OCAD U coordinators, Casey Helm and Teddy Schaub curated this exhibition and here is their perspective on this art show:

The PROUD at OCAD U Exhibition features the work of LGBTQ+ identifying students here at OCAD. Art Exhibition spaces can be inaccessible spaces, especially for those whose identities intersect in different ways. The theme is simple: there is none! The participants were encouraged to bring in work they felt like showing off. PROUD is a community space and focuses on claiming our own space here at OCAD. Copies of the PROUD Community Zine are also available for free in the Learning Zone!

List of participants:

Casey Helm
Jazmin Cordon-Ibanez
Rachel Finlay
J. Lee Bertram-French
Heidi Ku
Abigail LaChapelle
Vincy Lim
Rachel McCormick
Emily Saunders
Teddy Schaub

On until April 23
