OCAD University stands out at Art Toronto

 

Thursday, November 12, 2015 - 4:45pm

You couldn’t miss them: A dozen OCAD U students and alumni displayed their works at a prime location at Art Toronto this year – just inside the front doors. Considered Canada’s international modern and contemporary art fair, the event at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from October 23 to 26 drew thousands of gallerists, collectors and art lovers who couldn’t help but notice OCAD U’s showcase.

Participation in the art fair was made possible by a generous donation from Ada Slaight to the Contemporary Painting and Print Media Program, with the booth curatorial team led by the Ada Slaight Chair of Contemporary Painting and Print Media, Natalie Waldburger.

Criticism and Curatorial Practice graduate students Tak Pham and Barbora Raceviciute curated the exhibition booth with undergrads Janine Arellano and Hannah Zanovello. The exhibit included the work of Michael Badour, Cat Bleumke, Atleigh Homma, Maxwell Hyett, Rebecca Ladds, Sarah Letovsky, Kesang Nanglu, Kristen Plewes, Molly Prime, Alex R. M. Thompson, Kelly Uyeda and Jennifer Wigmore. The artists in the OCAD U booth collectively sold more than $12,000 work of art over the weekend, including alumna Sarah Letovsky, who sold a work to a prominent New York Gallery.
