The Ontario College of Art & Design (OCAD) is gearing up for its 95th annual Graduate Exhibition, which takes place May 6 to 9.
Enter OCAD presents the thesis work of the class of 2010, an eclectic mix of more than 500 graduating students working in 12 undergraduate programs. The work ranges from drawing and painting, printmaking, photography, criticism and curatorial practice, integrated media and sculpture/installation in the Faculty of Art to advertising, environmental, industrial and graphic design, illustration and material art and design (jewellery, fibre and ceramics) in the university’s Faculty of Design. Enter OCAD will transform the university’s main building and the acclaimed Sharp Centre for Design into the biggest exhibition of the year.
New this year, OCAD will match collectors, new and old, with the hottest emerging artists and designers through the exhibition and sale The Next Big Thing, sponsored by Aboveground Art Supplies, at the OCAD Student Gallery. The Gallery, located on Dundas Street West, is right around the corner from OCAD’s main building on McCaul Street. The Next Big Thing opens April 28 and continues until May 22.
Guests can also purchase works from OCAD’s printmaking, photography and material art and design programs at Enter OCAD.
