Congratulations to 2015 OCAD U Photo Program graduate Genevieve Blais, for her inclusion in the upcoming exhibition:
PARABOLIC: AN EXHIBITION OF TORONTO POP-SURREALISM
Curated by Troy Brooks
The exhibition runs August 14 – 28 at The Redhead Gallery and features to work of Troy Brooks, Genevieve Blais, Marjorie Campbell, Yang Cao, Christopher Hayes, Stepahnie MacLean, Paul Saari, and Kyle Stewart. The gallery is open Tuesday- Sunday from 11am – 6 pm.
BIO: Genevieve Blais is a photo-based artist earning great praise for her work involving art historical and theoretical narratives. The artist’s twisted representation of familiar subject matter characterizes her fantasy world. Her captivating yet sinister work draws on themes of sexuality, mortality and symbolism.
Blais’ works have been commissioned by national institutions like the Royal Ontario Museum and the Ontario Science Center, exhibited nationally and featured on a range of publications across mediums from Beautiful/Decay, the Today Show to Photo+ in Korea. She currently lives and works in Toronto.

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.
Every Object Has a Story is a partnership publication between the Royal Ontario Museum and The Walrus Foundation in celebration of the ROM’s 100th anniversary. An exciting part of this book is the inclusion of student photographers from Humber College, OCAD University, Ryerson University & Sheridan College who were selected to create works of art in response to artifacts from the ROM’s collection. From the Photography Department, I’d like to congratulate: Marvin Antonio, Sebastian Benitez, Genevieve Blais, David Clark, Christine Mclean, & Raymond Salaber on their contributions to this book.
Pick up your copy of this beautiful publication at the ROM, through the Walrus Foundation’s web store, and in other major bookstores.
