The University of Toronto Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition is an annual exhibition celebrating the artistic excellence of undergraduate students enrolled in visual studies programs across the University of Toronto’s three campuses. The exhibition offers a meeting place for students to exchange ideas through their diverse artistic practice.

The nineteen selected works in this year’s online exhibition respond to the ramifications of the pandemic and explore the ways our relationships to our environments are digitally mediated. The collection of artworks fosters connection and community, inspiring each of us to contemplate and examine our sense of self in the virtual realm.

The 2023 Shelley Peterson Student Art Exhibition is curated by Jessica Fisher, Meredith Lorimer, and Neshan Tung as part of their Master of Museum Studies Capstone Project at the Faculty of Information, University of Toronto. Their project mentor is Dr. Liora Belford.

Amongst these artists, Hiu Ting Charlotte Lam, Helia Honarmandi, and Billie Raphael were selected for awards by art historian, critic, and curator Charlene K. Lau.
