Monday, April 27, 2015 - 4:00am

OCAD University Photography students are papering the town with their art this spring.

Twenty-seven graduates of OCAD U’s Photography program (thesis option) will showcase their images in this year’s centennial Graduate Exhibition as well as the prestigious Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

The CONTACT show – The Fortune of Having Been There – will be divided into three “volumes.” Each will be curated by a third-year student from OCAD U’s Criticism and Curatorial Practices program:

  • Volume I: May 14 to 24 (Opening reception: May 15)
  • Volume II: May 25 to June 2 (Opening reception: May 28)
  • Volume III: June 3 to 10 (Opening reception: June 5)

The volumes will unfold at The Project Gallery (1109 Queen St. E.), and the curators will attend their respective opening receptions.

Before that month-long exhibition gets underway, those 27 visionary photographers will present their work at OCAD U’s Graduate Exhibition – the biggest in the university’s history. The hundredth anniversary of this annual gathering of graduating students’ art, design and digital-media projects is open to the public from 6:30 p.m. on April 29 until 5 p.m. on May 3.

Four of the 27 also have works included in another CONTACT show: Revolution. All the participants in Revolution are students in OCAD U’s International Collaboration Studio course. Visit the exhibition at the Open Gallery, 49 McCaul St., from May 10 to 25.
