This past December, the Consulate General of Canada hosted a group exhibition in Dubai’s foremost arts hub, Alserkal Avenue, as part of the Canada 150 program. The exhibition included works by OCAD U alumni, Sara Pearson and Camille Jodoin-Eng, as well as Canadian artists, Arwa Abouon, KC Adams, Babak Golkar.

The four OCAD U alumni works on display represented a range of recent innovative work coming out of the Drawing & Painting program in the Faculty of Art at OCAD U. A guided tour of the exhibit was provided by KC Adams on Dec 15, 2017.

The exhibited works are courtesy of Art Works Consulting and were curated by Devan Patel.

OCAD U’s participation was made possible through the university’s Government Relations & Partnerships and the Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers.
