For a little while we’ve been Chair-less, but not anymore!
Emma Nishimura is the new Chair of Photography, Printmaking and Publications at OCAD U.
Here’s her bio and the link to her website so you can check out her work:
“Based in Toronto, Emma’s work ranges from traditional etchings, archival pigment prints, drawings, and audio pieces to art installations. Using a diversity of media, her work addresses ideas of memory and loss that are rooted within family stories and inherited narratives. Emma received her MFA from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2013 and her BA from the University of Guelph in 2005. Her work is in public and private collections and has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Emma is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Guelph. Previously she taught at OCAD University, Sheridan College and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
She is the recipient of the Queen Sonja Print Award 2018.”
