exhibition in-person

‘Dying.exhibits’ is an exhibition series on end of life, inviting participants to think about their relationship with life and death. By holistically engaging with life, including death, ‘Dying.exhibits’ becomes a catalyst for getting comfortable with the uncomfortable and encourages us to start talking about what truly matters. The exhibition serves as an opportunity to engage with diverse perspectives and participate in open discussion about death and dying through engaging art and design works and participatory experiences.

The ‘Dying.series’ was founded by Maria Cheung, CEO at Taboo Health, participatory designer and researcher Karen Oikonen and Dr. Kate Sellen, Director of the Health Design Studio at OCAD University. Over the past three years, the ‘Dying.series’ has attracted over 5000 attendees, 26 speakers, including 4 opening and keynote speakers in the disciplines of design and healthcare and 29 exhibiting artists and designers.


Featuring artists include: Amberlie Perkin, Andrea Campbell, Connie Chappel, Daniel Laskarin, Daphne Vlassis, Dessa Ely, Grégory Lasserre & Anaïs met den Ancxt, Jocelyn Brown & Ramuni Luminaire, Melanie Garcia and Sandra Gregson. Curators: Maria Cheung, Karen Oikonen, Kate Sellen with support from Laura Guida
