Art School (dismissed), 2010
Heather Nicol curated and produced a site-specific exhibition in a decommissioned pubic school in Toronto. After a decade shuttered up, the Beaux Arts style building was open to the public for a condensed program of site specific installation, sculpture, new media, dance, music, performance, painting, interdisciplinary and collaborative projects. Art School (dismissed) featured the work of 60 artists who extend their established creative practices into the realm of education as teachers and mentors at Universities and Colleges across the Greater Toronto Area. A special “Teacher’s Pet” exhibition-within-the-exhibition featured works by student artists selected by their teachers.
