Our friends at Montreal-based Les Territoires have issued their annual portfolio of fundraising editions, which we are happy to share here. If you’re still looking for a gift for that special someone, check out the collection of works by nine different artists.

Shown above is the contribution by Dawit L. Petros, titled Signal (Overlapping and intertwined territories that fall from view IV). Taken from his Stranger’s Notebook series, theimage centres on a new arrival to Italy, interrogating the transhistorical entanglements that bind Europe to Africa.


Please join us in welcoming Cynthia Mykytyshyn to CDCC as our 2016-17 Curatorial Resident. Cynthia is an arts administrator and emerging curator based in Toronto. She earned a Masters Degree in Cultural Studies in 2012 from Queen’s University, where her studies focused on the intersection of art practices and natural environments and culminated in a self-directed curatorial project titled Where the Wild Things…Aren’t? (2012) exploring the relationship between the human and the other-than-human. Recent curatorial projects include If These Walls Could Talk: The Ongoing Story of 401 Richmond (2014) at Urbanspace Gallery, and Nuit Blanche Toronto Independent Projects Built for Art: A Living Archive (2015)and Built For Art: A Secret Garden (2016) at 401 Richmond. Cynthia continues to be concerned with site-responsive art practices in alternative and unexpected spaces.

We are also pleased to welcome our first OCADU Academic Placement intern, Reece McCrone. Reece is a third year Publications student who has an interest in learning more about the process of curation. We look forward to working with both Cynthia and Reece over the next several months as we share knowledge and work collaboratively on all aspects of curating, arts administration, and exhibition-making in the nonprofit environment.


Our beautiful winter show, The Path, The Divide | Brynn Higgins-Stirrup, curated by Oana Tanase opens January 19th — look for our WINTER UPDATE early in the new year, which will have much more news on upcoming events and opportunities!
