The Department of Arts, Culture and Media at the University of Toronto Scarborough is pleased to present Wonderlust, an exhibition and publication featuring works by graduating students in the Studio Art program. Wonderlust is a minor but potent détournement that captures the desire to embrace the uncertain and the unfamiliar through imagination, inquiry, and encounter. The artworks in the exhibition probe the idea of wonder in diverse ways, asking: can the digital re-enchant the everyday? What does AI have to teach us about the inexplicable? How does memory, forgetting, and tradition shape the future of families, diasporas, and other collectivities? For the artists in Wonderlust, curiosity forges the path through real and fantastical topographies of mortality, displacement, belonging, crisis, and social transformation.

The Studio Art program in the Department of Arts, Culture and Media at the University of Toronto Scarborough offers courses in a wide range of established and emerging artistic media. Our students learn to utilize artistic knowledge as tools to engage social, political, and ecological challenges locally and globally. The artistic training and experience offered by the University of Toronto Scarborough Studio Art program provides a rigorous visual art education for students interested in careers in the cultural and design sectors as well as for those intending to pursue advanced study in art and the humanities at the graduate level.

The Department of Arts, Culture and Media is a multi-disciplinary research and teaching environment at University of Toronto Scarborough with programs in Art History and Visual Culture; Arts and Media Management; Journalism; Media, Journalism and Digital Cultures; New Media Studies; Music and Culture; Studio Art; and Theatre and Performance.
