Digital Futures Grad Students lauded as "artists to watch" on BlogTO

 

Friday, May 5, 2017 - 10:30am

It's an exciting time of the year at OCAD University as the creative works of over 900 emerging artists are showcased at the 102nd annual GradEx. The exhibition runs May 3-7 and features several graduate students who's work is catching the attention of local and national media, including the very popular BlogTO. We congratulate Digital Futures graduate students; Fusun Uzun (medal winner), Jordan Shaw and Jazmine Yerbury, for their excellent work and for making BlogTO's list of artists to watch at this year's GradEx.

The 102 annual GradEx showcase is on at OCADU until May 7th, and it features installations from 900 up-and-coming artists throughout three different buildings. You can visit this awe-inspiring exhibition for free until Sunday, May 7 at 5 p.m. There's so much to see, so be sure to take your time.
