A mini-conference featuring faculty, students and arts professionals discussing the meanderings of mentorship as it navigates the fields of artistic and curatorial practices, the writing and research skill requirements of art history, and the transition to graduate school.

The title “Out of Joint” refers to the Art & Art History Program—a joint undergraduate program between Sheridan and the University of Toronto Mississauga.

The landmark Canadian program in visual arts (the first of its kind between a college and a university) celebrated its 40th Anniversary in 2011 and was the focus of the Blackwood exhibition Viva Voce.
