Traces is a group exhibition at Ryerson Artspace that celebrates the work of 2016 ART CAMP Residency Participants: Ailene deVries, Alexander Rondeau, Cat Bluemke, Claire Bartleman, Clea Christakos-Gee, Dana Prieto, Kesang Youdon Nanglu, Maddie Alexander, Melanie Winter, Mara Gajic, Nicholas Aiden, Paige Lindsay, Saba Giani
ART CAMP 2016 brings together 14 emerging artists from OCAD University and Ryerson University to build community and create art during a five month residency program. Participants were selected through an open call to artists in their 2nd year of study through to recent graduates who are enrolled/alumni from a program within OCAD U’s Faculty of Art, Indigenous Visual Culture or Ryerson’s School of Image Arts. Working alongside faculty supervisors Robyn Cumming (Ryerson University), Jennifer Long & Jennie Suddick (OCAD U), the participants attended professional practice workshops, studio visits, talks, film screenings, brainstorming sessions, critiques and learned new artistic skills.
A special thanks goes out to programming support from:
The Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema
Ryerson University’s Digital Media Experience Lab
OCAD University’s Emerging Centre for Artists & Designers
This project would not have been possible without the funding support Ryerson and OCAD University.

Upcoming opportunity to contribute to a black-focused publication, created by a Fashion Entrepreneurship student. The publication IFY, a unisex Nigerian name, “serves as a medium through which black identity will be channeled. The publication critiques and contributes to the worlds of culture, art, and fashion. We challenge the cultural norms of anti-blackness and create a space for black voices”.
It will consist of 2 fashion editorial pieces, an interview piece, 2 written essay pieces, and a journalism piece. The first shoot specifically is a reinterpretation of west african silhouettes; presenting looks that are contemporary and feminine, thereby challenging perceptions of the expected black male aesthetic.
If interested and for more information, please contact Chuma: firstname.lastname@example.org
