The Department of Arts, Culture and Media at the University of Toronto Scarborough is excited to announce Breakout, an exhibition and publication featuring works by graduating students in the Studio Art program. Breakout explores states of transition—of splintering and proliferation, of emergence and escape—as opportunities to investigate reality from a new vantage point. The artworks in the exhibition use process, abstraction, humour, and play to examine topics such as cultural erasure, the climate crisis, mental health, social connection, and the passage of time. Responding to a world marked by turbulence and uncertainty, this exhibition offers a space to contemplate change as an affirmative and generative force.
