OCAD U’s annual graduate exhibition will launch on May 3, 2021 with three different platforms: an online exhibition at, videos on OCAD U LiVE, the University’s 24/7 video channel, and outdoor public activations/projections to take place in May and June.

GradEx, Toronto’s largest free art and design exhibition, is normally a five-day in-person annual event in May, with more than 45,000 guests. While the past year has presented its challenges, this year's exhibition still aims to provide its graduates with an opportunity to showcase their talents and connect them with potential employers and buyers. 

The online platform will include an opportunity for industry members to connect with artists and designers to recruit new talent for their own galleries and firms. 

And art lovers — it’s a great opportunity for you to discover new artists and designers to add to your collections

GradEx 106 will also feature many online events for the public and industry to meet and engage with OCAD U students – stay tuned for more details.
