Call for Submisisons: Collectorama at OCAD Graduate Gallery

I found this neat call on Toronto Craft Alert about a week ago.  I'd really like to talk about my record collection...! Check it out.


Collectorama is an afternoon event dedicated to the gesture, impulse, and manifestation of collecting. It is being held in conjunction with the exhibition Other People’s Collections* in the OCAD Graduate Gallery on Saturday, September 19, 2009, 11 – 3pm.

Collectorama is an event for enthusiasts, artists, and experts to collectively tease out the pertinence and resonance of collecting and collections.

Collectorama is looking for you and your idiosyncratic! populist! embarrassing! enviable! professional! amateur! imaginary! real! contemporary! historical! rare! ordinary! huge! overwhelming! modest! boring! collection and/or research to be shared as a 10-20 minute presentation. There will be a slide & video projector present as visuals are strongly encouraged.

!! call for participation !!

  • a short description of the collection you will focus on
