2016 University of Toronto MVS Studio Program Graduating Exhibition

March 18–April 9, 2016

University of Toronto Art Centre

The Art Museum at the University of Toronto is pleased to exhibit the graduating projects of the 2016 Master of Visual Studies graduate students: Gillian Dykeman, Elisa Julia Gilmour, Daniel Joyce, and Fraser McCallum.

Gillian Dykeman is a Canadian artist whose research and projects describe the sexual politics of landscape through and intersectional feminist and post-colonial framework. Dykeman seeks inroads to subjectivity and agency by working across mediums and disciplines such as performance, sound, installation, and art criticism. Her work has been exhibited nationally and abroad, and she is the host and producer of Working (it) Out, the ArtSlant podcast.

Elisa Julia Gilmour is an emerging Canadian artist producing cinematic installations. Her latest work, Éperdument (Madly), investigates how a Corsican mythological figure has enlivened and reproduced a contemporary sense of identity. She has exhibited at the Ryerson Image Centre in Toronto and the Art Gallery of Mississauga.

Daniel Joyce is an interdisciplinary artist currently residing in Toronto. His works often utilize found objects, re-appropriated forms, and the participation of others. Joyce is interested in art’s social functions, as something with the ability to bring communities and histories together.

Fraser McCallum is a Toronto-based artist. His graduating project Come Live With Us exhumes and critically examines the history and legacy of Rochdale College, Toronto’s infamous experiment in alternative education and communal living. He was a recent participant in Demos: Life in Common at the Banff Centre (2015), and a research fellow for the Curatorial Incubator program at Vtape (2013).
