Thesis Exhibition of Interdisciplinary Master's Student Lisa Binnie

Please join IAMD MFA Candidate Lisa Binnie for her sensory explorations of the Port Lands

Please join the IAMD Program and the Graduate Studies Department in celebrating the IAMD Thesis Exhibition of MFA Candidate Lisa Binnie.

The Port Lands are dramatic and otherworldly, shaped by the dynamic forces of industry, recreation and nature. The Walk leads to five vantage points from which you will see these forces in action.

Lisa Binnie is leading four public walks in September. You can also tour it yourself guided by the map on the website, and onsite signs and flags.

The artist led walks are:
Sep 2nd, 11 am
Sep 6th, 11am
Sep 8th, 11am
Sep 14th, 10am

We meet at the southeast corner of the Cherry Street bridge, just north of Unwin Avenue and Cherry Beach. The Walk's duration is two hours including the return trip.

Dan Solomon is a painter and professor in the Drawing and Painting program at OCAD University. He worked full time at the David Mirvish Gallery from 1968 to 1970, and exhibited there in 1977 and 1978.

David Mirvish opened his gallery in 1963 and focused on exhibitions of Color Field artists. Since closing the gallery in 1978 he has worked primarily in the theatre and has continued to collect, building on the foundation of artists shown in the gallery. He is currently planning the creation of a museum to exhibit the collection in the Mirvish/Gehry project on King Street West. The project includes the Princess of Wales entre for Visual Arts at OCAD U.
