Announcing the Career Launcher Recipient
We are excited to announce that the OCAD University Career Launcher recipient is Khadijah Morley (she/her)! Khadijah will be joining us in the fall as The Scotiabank Studio and Education Assistant and we look forward to working with her in the studio.
Khadijah Morley is a Tkaronto (Toronto) based artist with a BFA in Drawing and Painting, and a minor in Printmaking at OCAD University. Through the process of etching and relief printing, Khadijah explores the complexities of Black womanhood through an autobiographical lens. She often uses self-portraiture to deconstruct the fallacy of a Black monolithic experience. She hopes that her subject matter serves to expand discourse surrounding Black subjectivity. Khadijah’s work invokes notions of hooks’ oppositional gaze and Du Bois’ double consciousness. Khadijah’s Instagram: @peenutbuttahbabe.
The Career Launcher recruited placement is made possible by a partnership with OCAD University’s RBC Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers and is generously funded by Scotiabank.
