As part of the library’s ongoing site-specific art intervention project, selected students from Colette Laliberté's "Painting in the Expanded Field" (DRPT-4011) are exhibiting artworks in the Dorothy H. Hoover Library running from February 27th to March 9th. Each work conceptually interacts with a theme, practice, or policy in the library as an institution and emulates studio-based models in information literacy.
At the outset, students attend a seminar in the OCAD Library where guiding library philosophies and organizational practices are presented and, most importantly, critiqued. Afterwards, as students begin processing ideas, they present a description of their projects to OCAD U reference librarians to ensure that the works do not compromise daily circulation and reference services; a situation that would, in effect, demonstrate a failure to grasp the ultimate objectives of the entire exhibition project. Finally, we request that final critiques be held in the Library space with the full participation of a reference librarian.
