OCAD U GradEx Presents Creative Resilience / Resilient Creativity, Chancellor Jaime Watt’s Gallery, this exhibition showcases works by 20 emerging artists that explore themes related to living through a pandemic. The pandemic presented countless challenges for many but it also presented a unique environment to create in a time and space like never before. The exhibition presents works that express a range of what it meant to create during a pandemic – from themes that include profound loneliness and isolation, resiliency, innovation and experimentation.

Curated by OCAD U graduate Marilyn Adlington, the exhibition will feature artists from the recent successful GradEx 107 as well as 106 and 105. Adlington is a scholar, curator and arts writer based in Ontario. She completed an MFA in Criticism and Curatorial Practice in 2021 and was a recipient of the OCAD U Medal and President’s Award for her thesis research project.
