Learn more about Brendan George Ko:
Brendan George Ko is a visual storyteller that works in photography, video, installation, text, and sound. His work is about conveying a sense of experience through storytelling, and he describes the image as supplementary to the story it represents. Ko breaks traditional delineations in the medium by blurring the spaces between commercial, fine-art and documentary/photojournalistic works. Ko received his BFA from OCAD in 2010 where he majored in Photography, and practiced sculpture and curation. During his time in the Masters in Visual Arts program at the University of Toronto his practice shifted to include video and sound.
Ko has been active as a freelance photographer since he was an Undergraduate student. In addition to his editorial photography- which has appeared in numerous publications such as The New Yorker, New York Times, Vogue and Flux magazines, to name a few, he maintains an active artistic practice. His most recent solo exhibitions were Moemoea at the CONTACT Gallery and We Soon Be Nigh! At LE Gallery.

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

Jenn Long’s interest lies in the experiences of women, and the limited representations in which they are depicted. This has spurred her practice and forms a lineage from her earliest work through to her work-in-progress. For the past fifteen years, her artwork has explored issues of doubt, vulnerability, perceived ideals, and communication within the context of interpersonal relationships. Working with constructed narratives and a feminist lens, she describes the emotions and quiet moments of everyday life. Touch, gesture and gaze all play significant roles as conduits of conscious and unconscious modes of communication.
Bio: Jennifer Long is an artist and educator holding a BAA from Ryerson University and a MFA from York University. Long’s artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally and been published in numerous Canadian and European books and magazines. Long has been the recipient of grants from the Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council, and The Canada Council for The Arts and is currently working at OCAD University as an Assistant Professor and the Associate Chair of Cross-Disciplinary Art Practices.
