From the Art Experts: Starting an Art Collection

OCAD Alumni: Navigating the Contemporary World

Success as an Artist: What is it? And How to Get There?

Dr. Vladimir Spicanovic

Leah Sandals

Dr. Vladimir Spicanovic, Artist and Dean of Art at OCAD University, interviews and engages in a lively exchange with four recent OCAD University alumni to hear what they are doing now! This group of graduates will present their recent work and discuss their art practices in the context of contemporary culture shaped by new technology, social media and hyper aesthetic images.

Success as an artist can be difficult to define. Is it simply finding the time to produce work, which can be an accomplishment in itself? Is it selling artworks, and if so to what extent? Is it garnering media attention? Leah Sandals, the online editor of Canadian Art magazine, joins a panel of artists in discussing these questions and exploring how their answers may change over time.

Saturday, February 22 4–5 pm

Sunday, February 23 3–4 pm
