ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE AT THE ART GALLERY OF ONTARIO

June 8 – July 31, 2015

The Artist-in-Residence Program forges a new channel of creativity and audience engagement for the Art Gallery of Ontario. The first of its kind at a major Canadian art institution, the program engages with the art community directly and meaningfully, while creating an experience for visitors that is intimate and unique. Drawing on links to partners in the contemporary art scene — including practitioners, curators and galleries within Toronto, as well as nationally and internationally — the residency program allows the AGO to contribute significantly to the evolution of individual artistic endeavours, leading the way for experimentation and growth in the field of contemporary art practice.

WORKSHOP AT NATIONAL INSITUTE OF DESIGN, AHMEDABAD, INDIA

Leading a workshop with undergraduate students in order to create social engaged photographic projects with seniors in the local community. Focusing mainly on portraiture, students will look to work with one or more seniors for the duration of the workshop and use their cameras to create narratives about seniors who defy socially contrived limitations of age. The workshop will revolve around discussions about portraiture, ageing, photographic representation + identity and how photography can be a socially engaged practice, not just an aesthetic one.
