More than 900 promising young artists and designers are exhibiting at the biggest GradEx ever — OCAD University's 102nd! This year, GradEx is a five-day exhibition spread across three buildings on campus including the iconic Sharp Centre for Design. The university will throw open its doors, inviting the community to see works by the creative minds of OCAD U’s Class of 2017.

Students from undergraduate and graduate programs will show their final thesis work to an audience of more than 40,000 guests, some of whom attend the show to recruit new talent for their own galleries and firms.
