2023 University of Toronto Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition
On view starting May 16, 2023
Curated by Jessica Fisher, Meredith Lorimer, and Neshan Tung
The University of Toronto Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition is an annual exhibition celebrating the diverse artistic excellence of undergraduate students enrolled in visual studies programs across University of Toronto’s three campuses.
The nineteen artists included in the 2023 Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition respond to the ramifications of the pandemic and explore the ways our relationships to our environments are digitally mediated. The collection of artworks fosters connection and community, inspiring each of us to contemplate and examine our sense of self in the virtual realm.
Amongst these artists, Hiu Ting Charlotte Lam, Billie Raphael, and Helia Honarmandi were selected for awards by art historian, critic, and curator Charlene K. Lau.
The 2023 Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition is curated by Jessica Fisher, Meredith Lorimer, and Neshan Tung as part of their Master of Museum Studies Capstone Project at the Faculty of Information, University of Toronto. Their project mentor is Dr. Liora Belford.
