Art and Art History presents The Middle Child
Third-year Art and Art History students presented the 7th rendition of The Middle Child from July 18 – 25, 2019 at the Dignam Gallery, Women’s Art Association of Canada, located in Toronto. This student-led exhibition showcases their artistic and curatorial talents.
The artists included in this year’s exhibition are Cassandra Adams, Sabrina Bilic, Jasmine Canaviri, Laura Colacci, James Legaspi, Katrina Leslie, Jennifer Liu, Christine Pacheco, Le Emma, Juliette Sherland, Veronica Spiljak, Vu Thang, Isabella Varrasso, Jessica Velasco and Alek Vuksinic.
The Middle Child exhibition began in 2009 when third-year Art and Art History (AAH) Program students Jessica Vallentin and Mallory Hazlett organized a show of their third-year class in the lobby of Annie Smith. The students came up with the clever title of The Middle Child — acknowledging third-year students’ sandwiched position in a four-year program. In 2012, we held a third-year AAH survey show at the University of Toronto Art Centre (UTAC) also called The Middle Child. Since 2012, this student-driven, third-year AAH survey show is now a tradition. The exhibition continues to showcase a critical juncture in our students’ artistic development as they move into the creation of self-directed and interdisciplinary artwork in their third year of study.
We are proud of our passionate and hard-working Art and Art History students who come together as a team to continue the tradition of The Middle Child. We extend our congratulations to them on a successful show!
