VISUAL ARTIST BARRY ACE JOINS OCAD UNIVERSITY FOR NIGIG RESIDENCY

The Indigenous Visual Culture Department at Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCAD U) Toronto welcomed Barry Ace as the winter 2018 Nigig Visiting Artist-in-Residence from January 9 to February 6, 2018.

From OCAD U:

“The Nigig Visiting Artist Residency, hosted by the Indigenous Visual Culture Program at OCAD U, provides an opportunity for an Indigenous artist to visit the university for a three-to-four week period to focus on a short-term project and explore – in a collaborative environment – issues impacting their work. The visiting artist engages and interacts with students and faculty in the capacity of mentorship, critique, lecture and a public workshop/demonstration.

The Nigig Visiting Artist Residency supports the dynamism of Indigenous contemporary art and design practices and is a tremendous educational opportunity for the artist and students.”
