Indigenous Visual Culture hosts artist Michael Belmore for its inagural Nigig Visiting Artist Residency @ OCAD U Student Gallery from November 2 -20.

 The Nigig Visiting Artist Residency, hosted by the Indigenous Visual Culture Program at OCAD University, is a new program that provides an opportunity for an Indigenous artist to visit OCAD University for a 3-week period to focus on a short-term project and explore in a collaborative environment, issues impacting their work. The visiting artist will engage and interact with students and faculty in the capacity of mentorship, critique, lecture and a public workshop / demonstration.

If you are interested in scheduling a visit with Michael, please contact Ryan Rice rrice@faculty.ocadu.ca.

The Nigig Visiting Artist Residency supports the dynamism located in Indigenous contemporary art practice and is a tremendous educational opportunity for the artist and students.
