Soft: transformative queer love and care

Opening Reception: Thursday November 2, 2017 6pm-9pm 

Exhibition Dates: November 2, 2017 – November 24, 2017

Hours: Monday-Sunday 8am-9pm

The Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers at OCAD U congratulates Morgan Sears-Williams on the creation of this new photo documentary series and installation as the recipient of the 2017 Artscape Youngplace Career Launcher prize.

SOFT: transformative queer love and care explores the different manifestations of love and care and the intersections with politicized bodies, protest and reclamation of space. Where are the unexpected spaces where love and care manifest? What spaces are seen as more ‘legitimate’ than others? How can we challenge the idea of legitimacy of love and care within an intersectional queer lens?

As part of this Career Launcher, Madison Leeson, a graduate of OCAD U’s Curatorial and Criticism Practice program was commissioned to conduct an interview with the artist as well as a small essay to accompany the solo exhibition.

The artist would like to acknowledge the Mississaugas of New Credit, the Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat, the original keepers of this land, for hosting us during the reception and for the duration of the show. We are very grateful to have the opportunity to live and work on this land.
