The Bata Shoe Museum presents Ron Wood

Ron Wood CONTACT 2015 Exhibit

A Beautiful Step Forward: Wedding Shoe Portraits
by OCAD U faculty Ron Wood

May 23 – June 6
Opening: Tuesday May 26th from 6:30 – 8:30

The Bata Shoe Museum
327 Bloor St. West
Toronto, ON

Sun 12-5, M T W F S 10-5, Thurs 10-8

Sexy or modest, sometimes chosen with a theme in mind, and, occasionally outlandish, wedding shoes are the exclamation point in a well-crafted statement of style and individuality. Ron Wood’s portraits of wedding shoes are about love and friendship, old customs and new ones, and, of course, beauty.

As a photographer for The Bata Shoe Museum, Ron has photographed many of the museum’s historical collections. Now, in A Beautiful Step Forward: Wedding Shoe Portraits, he explores the significance of wedding shoes in contemporary culture

The Fortune of Having Been There : Volume II
OCAD University Photography Thesis Graduation Exhibition
Curated by Sara Nicole England

May 25 – June 2, 2015

The gateway into this exhibition is the idea of “doubling.” Included works incorporate subject matter that mirrors the “double nature” of photography; twinning, duplication, generation, imagined selves and masquerade are all at play. Opening: Thursday May 28, 5-8pm.

OCAD U & Timeraiser: May 30th

Eve Gane, Circle Landscape #1, 2014

Eve Gane, Circle Landscape #1, 2014

Timeraiser and OCAD University have come together to help support emerging artists, non-profit organizations, and promote civic engagement!  Timeraiser is a volunteer matching fair, a silent art auction, and a night out on the town. The big Timeraiser twist is rather than bid money on artwork, participants bid volunteer hours. 

Come out to the Power Plant on May 30th to celebrate the 29 artists selected for this opportunity to bid your volunteer hours on stunning artworks!  Tickets for this event are $20.

Keep an eye out for current photography majors:

 

Throughout the evening, participants meet with various non-profit organizations in the room to find available skilled volunteer opportunities that meet their needs. Once matches are made, the bidding can begin. Winning bidders have 12 months to complete their pledge in order to bring the artwork home as a reminder of their goodwill.

The exhibition, The Fortune of Having Been There, (The Project Gallery, May 14 to June 10, 2015) – showcases the work of 27 graduates of OCAD’s photography thesis program. This month long exhibition, curated into three distinct shows by students from OCAD’s Criticism and Curatorial Practices program, introduces the next generation of local artists and curators.

Volume I (May 14 – 24), curated by Tori Maas.

This exhibition brings together images and objects from artists’ interactions with space and site, the landscapes they inhabit, and the tension created by the collision of public and private lives.
