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.

Faculty mentors: Hadley Howes and Will Kwan
