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.

Artscape Youngplace’s 3rd Annual Career Launcher: In Collaboration with CEAD and OCAD University
© OCAD U Career Development Career Launchers Website

Artscape Youngplace and OCAD University’s Centre for Emerging Artists and Designers (CEAD) joined forces once again to offer the 3rd annual Artscape Youngplace Career Launcher Opportunity! Artscape Youngplace is a recurring partner working with OCAD’s career development department to help new graduates enter the professional realm after school.

Congratulations to the 2016 recipient Sharene Shafie, a multi-talented artist and curator who is currently pursuing a BFA in the Criticism and Curatorial Practice program at OCAD University. Sharene has been awarded the opportunity to curate a group exhibition for select graduating OCAD U students from the Criticism and Curatorial Studies program. From this exhibition, Sharene along with a jury compromised of faculty and curatorial professionals will award one artist a solo show, set for 2017.

Sharene has pursued multiple projects ranging from sculpture, installation and printmaking to participatory experiences. Her recent curatorial and artistic work has been concerned with narratives surrounding the multicultural experience in metropolitan cities such as Toronto. Click here to find out more!

The group show is set for the 2016 summer months at Artscape Youngplace in the Hallway Galleries, beginning on June 27th. The solo show will follow in 2017 and will take place in one of our Flex Studio spaces, complimentary of Artscape Youngplace.

Here at Artscape Youngplace, we highly value both the variety of artists that we come in contact with as well as the partnerships and collaborations that foster these connections. Thank you to CEAD and the students from OCAD U’s Criticism and Curatorial Practice program for making this opportunity possible! We cannot wait to see what is in store for both the group and solo shows.
