Fall 2019 Berlin-Toronto Exchange Exhibition Opportunity
During the fall term, an exchange exhibition will take place between Photo students at OCADU and the University of Europe in Berlin. Student work from each school will be installed at the partner school, printed from selected digital files. OCADU Photo students in the 300 and 400 level are invited to submit up to 5 images from a series.
This exhibition is planned in coordination with the teaching exchange between Professors Peter Sramek of OCADU and Walter Bergmoser of the University of Europe, who will teach this fall at the opposite school. The OCAD works will be installed in Berlin by Peter Sramek and the UE Masters students.
For the OCADU students, there will not be a pre-determined theme, rather students are invited to submit work that represents a key conceptual direction in their own photographic output. Selection will be coordinated by Peter Sramek. Not all work will be included.
Files will be uploaded as a folder with the student’s name into the folder Exchange OCADU in Berlin:
Image files must be named ‘FirstinitialLastname_Imagenumber’, in tiff or jpeg format and set to 300 ppi and approximately 20×24 inches in dimension.
Files which are too small will not be considered for printing.
A text document with the student’s name, year level, project title and up to 50 word statemen.t is to be included. Not all of the submitted works will be selected and you may wish to include fewer than 5 as a more specific edit.
Deadline: September 15, 2019
Note: Accepted students will be required to assist in printing and installing the show of Berlin students in the Ada Slaight Gallery with the supervision of Prof. Walter Bergmoser.

Beyond Borders is a curated exhibition of OCAD University student work from the Faculties of Art and Design. These moving and still images all defy or define boundaries, borders, margins, and edges. A lens inherently serves to create a border between artist and subject. Simultaneously, it provides a platform to describe and/or transcend and transgress physical, societal, political, personal, historical, cultural, racial, gendered constructions. While some choose to bridge borders, others may examine their defined edges. The still and moving images in this exhibition flirt with thresholds of the borders we so often struggle to define.
DEADLINE: APRIL 1, 2018
