DESCRIPTION

Officially opened in 2007, as the OCAD Professional Gallery, the name was changed in 2010 to Onsite [at] OCAD U.

Onsite [at] OCAD U features contemporary work by nationally and internationally significant artists and designers. This program of exhibits and events aims to contribute to the cultural vitality of Greater Toronto, and to enrich the educational experience of OCAD U students.

The inaugural exhibitions, organized by OCAD U curator Charles Reeve, were an untitled installation by alumnus Rirkrit in Spring 2007 and “Karim Rashid: From 15 Minutes into the Future” in the Fall of that year. Rirkrit’s show was his first solo exhibit in Canada; “Karim Rashid: From 15 Minutes into the Future,” which focused on highlights of the former OCAD U instructor’s practice from the last 10 years, subsequently travelled to the ACA Gallery at the Atlanta campus of the Savannah College of Art and Design as well as Warsaw’s CWW Domoteka.

Associated resources at OCAD U include the Permanent Collection, which features art and design significant to the university’s history and mission, and a variety of venues dedicated to showcasing student work, such as the Student Gallery and Transit Space.
