Wrik Mead: Local Hero, In Person

  • Ocad University 100 McCaul Street Toronto, ON, M5T 1W1 Canada (map)

Hosted by exhibition collective, Pleasure Dome

With a moving-image practice spanning 30 years, and a stalwart, ongoing dedication to the molding of young artist minds at OCAD University, Toronto-based media artist Wrik Mead is truly a local hero. His distinct short-form works combine an animator’s patience with the reflexivity of the DIY psychodrama, producing brilliant first-person narratives of desire, difference and accommodation. Mead’s intelligent, sensitive parables are an intoxicating, visceral mix of painstaking pixilation, fairy-tale allegory and queer-identity. This special retrospective will be held at OCAD University—Mead’s alma mater and place of work for over 20 years.
