“I Am Here” blends professional art with the artifacts of ordinary lives in a big, bright multi-sensory feast

Jim Shedden (BA ’86 Innis, Cinema Studies; MA ’90), publications manager at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), has spearheaded an eclectic, new exhibition, titled “I Am Here: Home Movies and Everyday Masterpieces.”

"'I Am Here' began as a germ of an idea from Jim Shedden, the AGO’s publications manager. Although Shedden has discovered the joy of Marie Kondo’s “let it go” philosophy in his own life, he embraces a more maximalist approach to curating."
