Over the two week period of the online residency in 2020, residents crafted and created series of artworks of the theme “care” based on their unique knowledge and backgrounds. Coming from different insititutions, the residents shared their art-making process not only to produce engaging artworks, but also as a way of passing on care. By playing and exploring various forms, mediums and materials, they opened up the discussion and possiblity of what it means to “care”. This page features a number of selected artworks and artists from the first OCAD University Virtual Residency Contingencies of Care 2020.
Please visit the artists’ pages below to take a closer look at their artworks and their art making philosophy.
