NEO Exchange, Canada’s next-generation stock exchange, have partnered with OCAD U to co-create the NEO Commissioning Program and the Curatorial Coordinator Career Launcher. Five emerging OCAD U artists, working in a variety of mediums, will be commissioned to provide original works of art to commemorate the listing of a corporate client or the launch of a new fund on the NEO stock exchange.
We are happy to announce that Sagan MacIsaac has been selected as the Curatorial Coordinator. Her role will support commissioning-related activities and she will act as a liaison; leading communications between participating artists, NEO Exchange and its listing clients.
