From October 3-7, Indigenous Visual Culture’s NIGIG Artist-in-Residence Rosalie Favell will present a curated selection of images taken during her residency at OCADU. The new portraits on display will be of arts + culture professionals who participated in the three OCADU/Toronto FACING the CAMERA portrait sessions.

FACING the CAMERA will be on display from October 3-7 in the Ada Slaight Gallery at OCADU. A small, intimate reception will take place on Wednesday October 5 from 5:00-7:00pm. Rosalie will provide a brief artist talk on the series and respond to guest questions. Light refreshments provided.


FACING the CAMERA is an ever-growing national and international visual document of the Indigenous arts community. Using the portrait session as a performance space, Rosalie encourages individuals to express personal experience and history with the context of tradition and communal values.
