OCAD University hosts film and video marathon and interactive mural for Nuit Blanche!

 

Tuesday, September 27, 2016 - 4:00am

Wander through the darkened classrooms and corridors of OCAD University and lose yourself in moving images, interactive art and augmented reality. OCAD U is the site of two large-scale installations for Nuit Blanche starting at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1 through 7 a.m., Sunday, Oct. 2

Multiplex, curated by The Modest Eyes collective, is an all-night video and essay-film marathon of work by local and international artists and designers.

Sit in a theatre, join an on-site slumber party or use your mobile device to plunge into the streams of image, sound and text to experience the marathon in your own way. A list of programming, artists and artworks can be seen at The Modest Eyes website.

OCAD U is also the site of The Merging. Artist Nicola Verlato’s interactive mural on the front of the main campus building at 100 McCaul St. depicts two of Toronto’s most prominent historic figures: communications theorist Marshall McLuhan and mathematician Donald Coxeter. Using an app on their mobile devices, viewers can see elements of the mural float in space like 3D objects.

A second version of the mural inside OCAD U’s Great Hall lets people enter the painting using the app. The Merging is one of 10 projects in the city-produced exhibition Militant Nostalgia, curated by Paco Barragán.  

Location: OCAD University, 100 McCaul St., Toronto. Wheelchair accessible at front doors.

A few blocks away from OCAD U at Toronto’s City Hall, Michael Prokopow, Interim Dean of Graduate Studies, is co-curating an exhibition with Jeanine Marchessault. Oblivion presents the works of three artists: OCAD U alumna Floria Sigismondi, architect Philip Beesley, and Director X. Their interconnected works encourage reflection on “the immensities, vulnerabilities and breathtakingly terrifying realities of the universe.”
