Hang in There Baby is the culmination of a yearlong project called the pARTy Time Learning Lab, developed, designed and curated by Caroline Macfarlane and Morgan Mavis.

This project sprung from the idea that hospitals could benefit deeply from more art, colour and creative energy. Mavis and Macfarlane wanted to connect the talent at OCAD University to the patients at SickKids Hospital. What started as a series of art workshops at SickKids (pARTies) has expanded to include an inclusive, instructional video series to provide patients who are too unwell to attend our pARTies with the inspiration and supplies to make art from their hospital beds and Hang In There Baby; a celebration of positive, restorative vibes through art and design. For the duration of the exhibition, the OCAD U Student Gallery will be transformed into a rejuvenating, tropical oasis from the dark, long winter. After the exhibition concludes, all printed work will be donated to a local women’s shelter.

The goal of these artist’s and designers is to create work, through print, video, photography, textiles or performance that will inspire, energize and uplift! Hang In There Baby demonstrates how creativity can facilitate positive social change and help to transport us from our everyday lives.

It’s a cold and crazy world out there. Hang in there baby!

Exhibition dates: February 11 – March 4,
This exhibition is sponsored by AboveGround Art Supplies + The Imagination Catalyst.
Special thanks to Sarah Milroy and The Ladies Who Launch for their generous donations.

This will be the last official party and exhibition curated by the OCAD U Student Gallery before we hand over the space to Graduate studies for their thesis exhibitions. After that, the gallery turns into a condo! Come for the magic and stay for the show!
