A panel discussion between BEING+ curator, and University of Waterloo Fine Arts student, Abisola Oni and the exhibiting artists (Biba Esaad, Noah Lima, Miles Ingrassia, Roxana Parsa, and Michelle Rodrigues) will happen February 1, 2022 at 7 pm. Please register on Zoom in advance for this event.
Abby was the recipient of the Flavio Belli Curator Award at the 2021 Toronto Outdoor Art Fair (TOAF). The award provided mentorship opportunities for an early-career curator to create an online exhibition in cooperation with TOAF and Propeller Art Gallery. The resulting exhibition BEING+, focuses on the theme of situating the self within society and features the work of six emerging artists selected from the TOAF Emerging Artists roster. The works, by artists Biba Esaad, Noah Lima, Miles Ingrassia, Roxana Parsa, Michelle Cieloszczyk, and Michelle Rodrigues, can be viewed on both the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair and Propeller Gallery sites.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
