98th Annual OCAD Graduate Exhibition Kicks Off May 2

The class of 2013, an eclectic mix of more than 550 graduating students working in 12 undergraduate programs, will present its final thesis work to an audience of more than 26,000 guests betweeb May 2 and 5.

OCAD University’s students work in a broad spectrum of disciplines, ranging from drawing and painting, printmaking, photography, criticism and curatorial practice, integrated media and sculpture/installation in the Faculty of Art; to advertising, environmental, industrial and graphic design, illustration and material art and design (jewellery, fibre and ceramics) in the Faculty of Design. OCAD U’s annual “GradEx” transforms the university’s main building and the acclaimed Sharp Centre for Design into one of Toronto’s largest and most anticipated exhibitions of emerging talent.
