ARTSIDEOUT: Bigger and Better

By Morgaine Craven

From noon until midnight on October 7th, University of Toronto Scarborough will be transformed by the 3rd annual ARTSIDEOUT festival. The largest arts festival on campus promises over thirty projects by students and alumni of different disciplines spread across the grounds of UTSC.

The theme of this year's ARTSIDEOUT is “engagement”, and most of the works encourage audience involvement. Viewers can explore the commissioned installations, where they might put on headphones and walk in the dark in Adelaide Lo's Loud Silence, or watch Emma Baron try to stop dyed water from leaking, in her Oil Painting, a piece about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. They can examine the independent projects, attend class exhibitions, or go to club projects, where UTSC groups Shutterbugs, BIOSA, Video Game Society Squared, SC:OUT, Project A and 2nd Nature have collaborated to produce some truly unique exhibits. Finally, from 4 PM to 11 PM, the audience can attend one of the six shows in the Music and Performance Program.

Curated by Tharmila Rajasingam and Leo Lam, this year's ARTSIDEOUT is a must-see.
