Curated by Tom Barker

CodeX is an exhibition of playable and disruptive digital artworks that explore human-machine relationships, and how society is influenced by technology, innovation and design.

Since the 1950s, digital and technological art has evolved and diversified into a broad range of almost magical art forms with many labels, such as: video art, internet art, post-internet art, hacktivist art, cybernetic art, algorithmic art, and information visualization art. CodeX places its artworks under the collective term, “eArt”, which embraces all of these sub-categories.

In our rapidly evolving digital age, artists and designers continue to apply creative ideas using new technologies. CodeX brings together eight recent and engaging eArt pieces. The diverse technologies and interactions raise questions about the human condition, exploring our attitudes, differences and similarities with machines. The exhibition proposes three themes to codify eArt: Algorithms, Identity, and The Nature of Reality.

The art machines in CodeX offer spontaneous carnival-like excitement while prompting visitors to reflect on the nature of being human - through sometimes playful, other times uncomfortable interactions with the works.

All art is ultimately defined by its audience. In CodeX the artworks go a stage further: they are incomplete as creative pieces without you as a player or participant.

Winter 2022 President’s Speakers Series

Curated by President Ana Serrano, the President's Speakers Series showcases leaders in art and design who identify as Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) in conversation with OCAD U faculty members, sharing their international experience with our community. The series is presented by The Sherman Foundations.  
 

Sustaining Black Creativity: A conversation with Dr. Zoé Whitley 

January 11, 2022, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  
Registration is now open for this virtual event 

The first event in the series, Sustaining Black Creativity features Dr. Zoé Whitley, one of the UK’s most influential art curators.  

Dr. Whitley, whose work as an exhibition maker and art historian focuses on contemporary artists from Africa and the African diaspora, will discuss the future of Black art with Associate Professor in the Faculty of Art, Dr. Andrea Fatona. 

The free-ranging conversation will focus on sustainability in the arts community, specifically, how to build a future where BIPOC artists thrive.  

Los Angeles-born, London-based Dr. Whitley began her career examining representations of Blackness in creative industries. Today, she is a Black leader in the arts and is at the forefront of empowering diverse voices.  

In 2007, while a curator at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, she presented Uncomfortable Truths, an exhibition that commemorated the bicentenary of the abolition of the British slave trade and examined traces of this history in contemporary art and design. 

She went on to curate Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power in 2013, which showcased artworks by more than sixty artists in the United States, responding to the Civil Rights and Black Power movements. She is currently the Director of Chisenhale Gallery.  

Moderator, Dr. Andrea Fatona is a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Canadian Black Diasporic Cultural Production and is the Director of the Centre for the Study of Black Canadian Diaspora. Dr. Fatona's expertise focuses on issues of equity and representation in the arts. 
 

How to Dress a Terran Emperor:  
A Respectful Dialogue with Costume Designer Gersha Phillips 

Postponed. Please check back for new scheduled date/time (formerly scheduled for February 11, 2022 at 10 a.m)

The second event in the series, How to Dress a Terran Emperor: A Respectful Dialogue with Costume Designer Gersha Phillips features the award-winning costume designer in conversation with the Dean of the Faculty of Design, Dr. Dori Tunstall.  

The discussion will be rooted in Phillip’s experience working on a range of film and television productions including, Star Trek: Discovery and the role 3D printing and other advanced technologies play in her design process.  

Born in England to parents of Caribbean and African descent, Phillips and her family moved to Canada when she was 12 years old. Since then, she has worked in costume and wardrobe design with Hollywood's A-list including, Angela Bassett, Benedict Cumberbatch and Dwayne Johnson. She is currently working on the film, The Woman King, starring Viola Davis, set to be released in 2022.  

Her costume design work has been shown in exhibitions including Otherworldly: The Art of Canadian Costume Design at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in 2011. In 2022, her designs for Star Trek: Discovery will be on view at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC. 

Together with moderator, Dr. Dori Tunstall, Phillips will address diversity and inclusion in film and television and offer tips on where design students might find professional opportunities in Toronto’s entertainment industry.

Can Machines Be Flawed Enough to Be Human?
Wednesday, March 4
6:30 p.m.

Onsite Gallery
199 Richmond St. West

Free event as part of Onsite Gallery's public event program for CodeX: playable & disruptive futurist eArt.

A panel discussion that will examine our growing dependence on glitchy AI learning for business and culture and how this affects our daily lives.

Panelists: Jimmy Ba, Leyla Imanirad and Dr. Alexis Morris
Moderator: Tom Barker


ASL interpretation will be provided.

 

Among his many accomplishments, Jimmy Ba developed the Adam Optimizer, one of the go-to algorithms to train deep learning models. Jimmy completed his undergraduate degree, Master’s degree and PhD at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Geoffrey Hinton, Brendan Frey and Ruslan Salakhutdinov. Jimmy’s research focuses on the development of learning algorithms for deep neural networks. He was the second-ever student from a Canadian institution to win a Facebook PhD Fellowship and in 2015, his team achieved the highest place among academic labs in the image caption generation competition at CVPR.

Leyla Imanirad joined Bristol Gate Capital Partners in 2011, bringing her experience of software development and quantitative research from TD Bank. She initially led the data engineering and technology acquisition efforts to build the research infrastructure at Bristol Gate. She further worked on developing predictive models, investment strategy analysis and portfolio construction tools. As a practitioner, she believes in harnessing the power of the artificial intelligence while being cognizant of its limitations. As a communicator, she enjoys raising awareness about the technology and its impact on our collective future. She has a bachelor degree in computer engineering and a master’s degree in computer & biomedical engineering from the University of Toronto.

Dr. Alexis Morris is an assistant professor in the Digital Futures program at OCAD University, and the Canada Research Chair (Tier II) in the Internet of Things. He is the director of the Adaptive Context Environments (ACE) Lab, and is a specialist in the overlapping research domain of software engineering for adaptive systems based on the incorporation of fuzzy human-factors in socio-technical systems and conducts core research on adaptive interfaces and collaborative approaches to context awareness through mixed reality, for a host of domains, including the Internet of Things. His work engages a cross-section of approaches in artificial intelligence (i.e., soft-computing via neural networks and fuzzy logic), virtual and augmented reality, passive brain-computer interfaces, adaptive risk management, multi-agent systems modelling, organizational culture simulations, and pervasive technologies. He also aims to impart insight into the broad impact of rapid technological advances on society, through lecturing and teaching roles that engage and inspire students.

Tom Barker has worked internationally as a multidisciplinary creative in the fields of design, art, and technology for many years. Tom’s diverse and ground-breaking collaborations have included the capsule and boarding design for the London Eye ferris wheel with David Marks Julia Barfield Architects; creating the world’s first Bluetooth headset for Emkay; and projects with the late architect Zaha Hadid for buildings, dance and opera stage sets. He curated The Art of Shopping for the Arts Council of England in 2002. Tom contributed an interactive futuristic 3D walkthrough entitled Masterplanners of the Universe: Brick Lane for the Barbican Arts Centre’s blockbuster global touring show Game On: 2002-2016. Tom collaborated with Langlands & Bell on the digital interactive artwork entitled The House of Osama Bin Laden which won a BAFTA and was shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2004. He was the Founding Chair of the Digital Future programme at OCAD University 2012-2015. An author of many book chapters and papers, Tom’s book on Web App design was published by McGrawHill in 2019. A British citizen and permanent resident of Canada, Tom has lived and worked in the UK, Australia and Canada. He is currently the President and Chief technology Officer of Six Trends, a Toronto-based creative digital agency.

Peter Morin is a Tahltan Nation artist and curator. Throughout his artistic practice, Morin investigates the impact zones that occur when Indigenous practices collide with Western-settler colonialism. Morin’s artworks are shaped, and reshaped, by Tahltan epistemological production and often take on the form of performance interventions. Morin’s practice has spanned twenty years so far, with exhibitions in London, Berlin, Singapore, and New Zealand, as well as across Canada and the United States. In addition to his exhibition history, Morin has curated exhibitions for the Museum of Anthropology, Western Front, Bill Reid Gallery, and Burnaby Art Gallery. He was longlisted for the Brink and Sobey Awards, in 2013 and 2014, respectively. In 2016, Morin received the Hnatyshyn Foundation Award for Outstanding Achievement by a Canadian Mid-Career Artist. He holds a SSRHRC grant, Crossing media, Crossing Canada: performing the land we are, which explores the meeting up of media and durational performance. Morin is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Arts at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto.
