MAAD Speakers Series: David R. Harper

Thursday, October 19, 1:00-2:00 pm.
OCAD University, 100 McCaul St. Toronto, ON  M5T 1W1

The Material Art & Design (MAAD) program at OCAD U invites you to join us for our fall talk by celebrated contemporary visual artist, David R. Harper. Harper's work employs both traditional and non-traditional materials such as embroidery or ceramics, and casting materials such as salt and charcoal, to create objects or elaborate installations that grapple with notions of loss, love, belonging and control.

Harper (b. Toronto, Canada / Lives and Works in Sheboygan, Wisconsin) received his BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Fiber and Material Studies. His work has been included in group shows at museums in the US and Canada, including MASS MoCA, The National Gallery of Canada and the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and has participated in numerous solo exhibitions including My Own Personal Ghost (John Michael Kohler Arts Center), Plateau (South Bend Museum of Art) Skin and Bone (Textile Museum of Canada). In 2013, the Doris McCarthy Gallery at the University of Toronto Scarborough organized a touring exhibition of his work titled Entre Le Chien et Le Loup.

Harper’s work can be found in a number of notable collections including The Museum of Arts and Design, National Gallery of Canada, The John Michael Kohler Art Center, The Museum of Wisconsin Art, The Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation in Los Angeles, and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia to name a few.
