The Learning Zone is a unique and dynamic exhibition space with several venues for exhibition in a variety of media, including the Main Space, External Space and the Public Media Display.
The Learning Zone encourages submissions from all areas of study at OCAD University, including undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and alumni. Professional artists and designers are also eligible, if their submission is programmed and submitted by OCAD U curators. Submissions are accepted on an ongoing basis. The Learning Zone accepts proposals for solo and group exhibitions. Students who wish to curate an exhibition of student work are also encouraged to apply.

Exhibitions in the Library
Information comes in many different shapes and forms; at the OCAD U Library, we know that art and design can be a powerful way to convey ideas, so we open our library space to site-interventions and other forms of installations. By using art to explore themes concerning libraries and access to information, we feel that these site-interventions can become a powerful way to conceptually explore issues in information literacy (http://ocad.libguides.com/InfoLit/Intro) using studio-based learning methodologies.
For more information on exhibitions in the library or to book an installation, contact Daniel Payne firstname.lastname@example.org, ext. 217
All Library art or design installations MUST
- be approved by library staff including the library director; we encourage all potential artists or designers to meet individually with library staff to discuss conceptual goals for the art installation project;
- support and conform fully to the Canadian Library Association’s “Statement of Intellectual Freedom” (http://cla.ca/wp-content/uploads/CLA_Intellectual_Freedom_Position_Stmt_27sept2015_ltrhd.pdf)
- engage with topics concerning libraries, the organization of or access to information, archival studies, book arts or the publishing industry, or any other theme related to information studies;
- not compromise the daily activities of the library;
- not rearrange, relocate of hide any materials from the library collection.
