The Didactic/Dialectic exhibition marks the thirty-eighth anniversary of the Art and Art History Program. In 1971, Sheridan joined with the University of Toronto's Erindale College to establish what became Canada's first collaborative fine art program between a college and a university.
A show in two parts, the Art and Art History graduating class presents a subtle investigation into pedagogy and art at the end of the 21st Century’s first decade. Due to the A&AH program’s distinct curriculum of both theoretical and practical, academic and studio-based learning, the work showcased is a diverse exploration of interplaying mediums such as video, painting, performance, photography, print, design and sculpture. Unique and critical, Didactic/Dialectic offers a glimpse at art borne of the information generation.
The Art and Art History Program, Sheridan/University of Toronto Mississauga
Students graduating from the Art and History program receive the benefit of both a Diploma in Studio Arts from the Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning and an Honours Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto Mississauga. The program is designed to provide students with a strong and diverse base of knowledge that prepares them for a broad spectrum of careers within the arts community and beyond. Alumni have pursued careers in teaching, both at the secondary and post-secondary level, while others go onto to earn their Masters in Studio Art or Art History.
