The Department of Arts, Culture, and Media at the University of Toronto Scarborough is pleased to present Prologue, an exhibition and publication featuring works by graduating students in the Studio Art program. The prologue is a liminal zone, a space where context is established, history is reckoned with, character is developed, but also where we are offered a glimpse of a world to come. The 40 artworks in Prologue excavate different points in this temporal continuum, from poignant engagements with the past through personal history and memory, to sober assessments of current technological, social, and ecological conditions, to hopeful, forward-looking imaginings of recuperation, sanctuary, and survival. 

Faculty mentors: Marla Hlady and Will Kwan
