A timely, new speaker’s series, COVID-19 and the Anthropocene, taking place this fall, explores an array of unique topics during the time of COVID-19. The speakers include artists, curators, a gallerist and a librarian. 

The series is part of a fall undergraduate course in the Faculty of Art, entitled Materials and the Anthropocene in which students creatively investigate connections between anthropogenic processes and the current COVID-19 crisis. It is also linked to an OCAD U research project, COVID-19 Anxiety, led by Pam Patterson, Assistant Professor, TIS Cross-Disciplinary/Faculty of Art which aims to interconnect the larger OCAD U community and provide resources for art educators during these pandemic times.  

Students in the summer iteration of Materials and the Anthropocene produced an exhibit The Essentialists: material proofs in extraordinary times now online and running through to September 30, 2020.
