OCAD U’s 104th Graduate Exhibition

Art and Design Events

Toronto’s largest free art and design exhibition

More than 800 promising young artists and designers are exhibiting at OCAD University’s 104th GradEx! This year, GradEx is a five-day exhibition spread across several buildings on campus including the iconic Sharp Centre for Design. The university will throw open its doors, inviting the community to see works by the creative minds of OCAD U’s Class of 2019.

Students from undergraduate and graduate programs will show their final thesis work to an audience of more than 45,000 guests, some of whom attend the show to recruit new talent for their own galleries and firms.
