Opening Reception: Friday, June 20, 7 p.m.
A series of exhibitions curated by Georgina Jackson with work by alumni and OCAD U faculty member, Ginette Legaré
What does it mean when we gather? What happens? Taking [a] part uses as a starting point conversations, within collectives, between artists and artists, curators and artists, peer groups and audiences, between artworks. The exhibition unfolds throughout its five-week duration, shifting from a series of three-person exhibitions in the back gallery space to an expanding group exhibition in the front gallery.
“Walls don’t stay put as walls, things happen to them, things evolve, let it continue, and see what happens?”
- Peter Nadin in conversation with Céline Condorelli
