2018-19 Programming

For 2018-19, WIA is focusing on the work of artist/researchers with an international perspective view as they deal with issues, fears, phobias and challenges. 

Fall 2018: Julia Louise Pereira, Toronto, ON.

Julia Pereira is an illustrator whose work varies across the board, but focuses on telling compelling stories through images and engaging her audience in emotionally and politically engaging designs. In her exhibit for fall 2018, she, as an emerging feminist artist, re-frames myths by providing us with open narratives that challenge us to question our deepest fears, desires and beliefs.   

Julia is currently attending OCAD University, majoring in Illustration and minoring in Creative Writing, and working as a Curator-In-Residence and Designer for WIAprojects.
