Curator: Jenny Chen

Jenny Chen is a fourth year student at OCAD University majoring in Drawing and Painting. Her personal body of work involves the representation of the human body in relation to identity in different mediums. As an emerging artist herself, she understands the difficulties artists face with finding space to exhibit their work. Her interests are in line with helping create community and opportunities that give exposure to students and aspiring artists. Where Are You Really From? is her first curatorial project as a part of her internship position at Artscape in Daniels Spectrum. Jenny also works as an acting gallery coordinator at Neilson Park Creative Centre, and assists with exhibition development and execution.
