It was a full house for the Visiting Artist performance by Cassils

It is integral for students to engage with contemporary art movements and discover the personalities and work of artists from across Canada and around the world. We encourage both our students and the public to regularly attend our prestigious visiting artist program.

A diverse group of thinkers

Our program invites artists, curators, critics and other practicing art professionals to discuss their work and it's relation to the world of contemporary art.
