On Saturday, April 2 everyone is invited to check out OCAD University’s numerous galleries, during the annual Gallery Crawl.

“Having the artists and curators in attendance to introduce their work to visitors makes this year’s event even more special,” he continues.

CodeX: playable & disruptive futurist eArt

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.

After an extensive search of candidates internationally,OCAD University has selected Berlin-based curator and biotechnologist Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, PhD, as the first curator of its International Curators Residency (ICR) program. The ambitious new program, supported with a grant from Partners in Art, will be the largest of its kind in Canada. The program will stimulate curatorial research and excellence through an original exhibition at OCAD U’s flagship professional gallery, Onsite Gallery. Curated by Dr. Ndikung, the exhibition will then travel internationally to promote Canadian creators abroad. The ICR program will also create educational opportunities for the OCAD U community and the public, introducing innovative curatorial methods while advancing cultural dialogue on contemporary curatorial practice. 

“We are delighted to announce the selection of Dr. Ndikung as OCAD U’s first curator of our exciting, new International Curatorial Residency,” said Dr. Sara Diamond, President and Vice-Chancellor, OCAD University. “The opportunity to interact closely with innovative international curators will enhance the learning experience for OCAD U students and our community, while heightening international awareness of Toronto as a vibrant contemporary art community. It will build opportunities abroad for Toronto artists. We must take our talent out to the world.”

Born in Yaoundé, Cameroon, Dr. Ndikung is an independent curator, author and biotechnologist, and is the founder and artistic director of SAVVY Contemporary Berlin. He was curator-at-large for Documenta 14 in Athens and Kassel, and guest curator of the 2018 Dak'Art Biennale in Senegal. Together with the Miracle Workers Collective, he is curator of the Finland Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2019. Dr. Ndikung is currently guest professor in curatorial studies and sound art at the Städelschule in Frankfurt; artistic director of the 12th Rencontres de Bamako, a biennale for African photography, 2019; as well as artistic director of Sonsbeek 2020, a quadrennial contemporary art exhibition in Arnhem, the Netherlands.

Dr. Ndikung was selected from a shortlist of five international curators by OCAD U’s Curatorial Advisory Committee to develop his project titled, “The Cochlea: Sonic by Nature,” which explores sonority and auditory phenomena in a world saturated with images. 

The three-phase program will begin in January 2020, with the arrival of Dr. Ndikung for his extended residency at OCAD U. The second phase will be the presentation of an original exhibition at Onsite Gallery in early 2022, curated by Dr. Ndikung. In the third phase, the exhibition will tour internationally to a venue that will be announced at the opening of the exhibition in Toronto. 

Partners in Art will support OCAD U on phases one and three. “We are thrilled to be supporting OCAD U in its first cultural residency program. Dr. Ndikung’s international experience and vision will be an incredible asset for Toronto’s multicultural landscape and will also help promote the work of Canadian artists globally,” said Antonella Vergati, Co-President of Partners in Art.  

While in Toronto, Dr. Ndikung will participate in multiple engagements that will include visits with OCAD U classes, local studios, artists and designers, as well as public talks and dialogue with multiple cultural leaders. The program will also include symposia, workshops and publications in order to support and extend scholarly knowledge on contemporary curatorial practices in art, design and new media.

Reviving Lost Histories in Indigenous and Black/African Communities - Wednesday, November 30 from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. EST

Register here: https://bit.ly/3Gkoa3W

Jordan BennettKaamil HaiderKyle SauveCamille Turner and Dr Alia Fortune Weston discuss contemporary art and design practices engaged in reviving suppressed histories through customary objects and visual culture, language and storytelling. Through their creative practices, they re-imagine, re-interpret and design artistic works that tell a story about their intersectional identities and histories. Their artistic works highlight the importance of reclaiming the power to revive their own cultural histories. Moderated by Susan Jama.

About The Panel:

Left to Right: An image of man wearing glass smiling and on the right a woman looking in far distance

Images (left to right): Jordan Bennett, photo by Richie Perez. Camille Turner, photo by Ebti Nabag.

Jordan Bennett is a Mi’kmaq visual from Stephenville Crossing, Ktaqmkuk (Newfoundland) and lives and works on his ancestral territory of Mi’kma’ki in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. Bennett’s ongoing practice utilizes painting, sculpture, textiles, video, installation, public art and sound to explore land, language, the act of visiting, familial histories and challenging colonial perceptions of Indigenous histories and presence with a focus on exploring Mi’kmaq and Beothuk visual culture.

In the past 10 years Bennett has participated in over 90 group and solo exhibitions nationally and internationally, as well as created numerous public art commissions. Bennett is currently working towards several public artworks nationally as well as group and solo exhibitions.

Camille Turner is an artist/scholar born in Kingston, Jamaica and currently based in Toronto. Her work combines Afrofuturism and historical research to explore race, space, home, and belonging. Her most recent explorations confront the entanglement of what is now Canada in the transatlantic trade in Africans and puts into practice Afronautics, a methodological frame she developed to approach colonial archives from the point of view of a liberated future. Camille is a graduate of Ontario College of Art and Design and has completed a PhD at York University’s Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change. Currently, she is a Provost postdoctoral fellow at University of Toronto’s Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. Camille’s work has been presented throughout Canada and internationally and is collected by museums and private collectors. She is the recipient of the 2022 Artist Prize, awarded to recognize outstanding contribution to the Toronto Biennial of Art.

Kyle Sauve is a Rama First Nations band member artist who primarily works with quills and birch bark. Kyle began experimenting with porcupine quills in March 2020, during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. Without access to traditional teachers, he struggled to gather information about this art form. Following a few months of trial and error, Kyle began to grasp the fundamental principles of quillwork. Eventually, Kyle was able to connect with a number of talented Indigenous artists by establishing an online presence through various social media platforms, most notably Burl Tooshkenig of Sweetgrass and Cinnamon, who assisted him in expanding into various traditional mediums such as caribou hair tufting, and sweetgrass. Kyle’s goal, now that he has amassed a wealth of knowledge from a variety of sources, is to meaningfully contribute to the revitalization of quillwork art form through educational opportunities for Indigenous people.

Dr Alia Fortune Weston is a Cape-Malay (South African)-English designer, scholar and educator, born and raised in Zimbabwe. Her work examines the ways that business and creativity contribute to social change, through sustainable and creative economies, de-colonial business, and food methodologies. In this panel, Alia talks about the history of the Cape Malay community in South Africa, a unique and little-known, diasporic community formed through Dutch colonization in the 17th Century. Her design practice is a contemporary form of wearable art, that is a love letter to her family history and culture, and the multiplicious influence of her mixed heritages. As an Associate Professor of Creative and Business Enterprise at OCAD University, Alia teaches courses that support art and design students in developing socially beneficial and ethical business capabilities. She runs two jewellery businesses, Alia Weston Jewellery and Fireflies Atelier which support community projects in Zimbabwe.

Kaamil A. Haider is a visual artist, art organizer, graphic designer, and an archivist whose work examines the relationship between objects and shared meanings and heritage in contemporary Somali art with an emphasis in memory. He draws references from diverse cultural, archival and oral traditions. Kaamil is a co-founder and co-director of Soomaal House of Art, an artist-run organization and collective based in Minneapolis. He has a Master’s degree in Heritage Studies & Public History and Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design from College of Design, University of Minnesota.

Jordan Bennett’s mural, 'pi’tawita’iek: we go up river' reflects his relationships with Mi’kmaq porcupine quillwork. Its bright colours within bold, elegant forms reference the atmosphere and Earth, as well as the ancestors and future, helping to complicate and humanize our understanding of Mi’kmaq people, demonstrating that they are ancestrally grounded and continuously evolving.  

Natalie King will create an anti-colonial installation featuring her cast of Anishinaabe queer femme spirits. These bright, brave visual guardians will surround a joyous gathering place. Viewers are invited to rest, reflect, converse and celebrate around a symbolic fire.
