Actually they’re nickels, giant nickels. Third year OCAD student Kevin Radigan’s intervention outside the AGO pokes fun at Bruce Mau’s blustery and sometimes pompous Massive Change exhibit which we’ve reviewed.
Fortunately for Radigan, the folks at the AGO have a sense of humour and are even talking about making the installation permanent rather than over-reacting at his tongue in cheek work. Thanks to Sally McKay for the link and photo.
Also, spring means another rash of student graduation shows. Go West, the OCAD thesis exhibitions that takes almost two dozen Queen West galleries, is the grand-pappy of them all. The student-artists will be partying at the Gladstone Friday night, the works will be up through the weekend.
