The Embarrassment Show workshop is an approach to creative thinking developed by Dutch creative director, curator and artist Erik Kessels. Originally conducted with a group of 2nd year photography students in Switzerland, the Embarrassment Show has developed into a travelling exhibition. Earlier in May, the project was brought to Sheridan College’s Trafalgar campus for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year Illustration students. Kessels led a three-day workshop and oversaw the production of the final exhibition with Sheridan Illustration Professor/Coordinator Joe Morse. Read More

Last week, Sheridan College unveiled ‘Woven Stories’, a colourful, two-storey public art mural, on the western façade of the Rob Turner Building at its Davis Campus, visible from McLaughlin Road, south of Steeles Avenue.
The project was Sheridan’s first large scale foray into experiential design, which concerns how you experience your environment and interact with space. It also created a reverse internship/co-op learning opportunity for students. On a functional level, it contributes to energy conservation, rehabilitates an unpleasant space, and adds a visually rich and freely accessible artistic experience to Brampton. Read More

Congratulations to the 2016 Art & Art History Graduates who unveiled their thesis projects at the Blackwood Gallery of UTM. Contrary to what the title of the exhibition may suggest, the artists of FAQ explored the position of art not solely as an exchange of question and answer, but as an opportunity for hypothesizing. Many of these artists investigate ideas of the cyclical and the entangled, emphasizing the futility of linear questioning. Throughout the breadth of their academic careers, these artists have continually revisited and re-examined a multitude of questions: questions of place, questions of material, and questions of self. What are constructions of personal identity? How are attachments formed to place? How are we affected by art? And of utmost importance, what art do we choose to make? Using acquired skills of visual construction and media creation, the featured artists bring dialogues of probing, process, and proposition into existence. Read More
