For Artists

RBC Artist Incubator Lab

Gallery A and the RBC Artist Incubator Lab are an innovative exhibition and studio space within The Robert McLaughlin Gallery that support community activation and provide artists with professional development opportunities. The Artist Incubator Lab is a space for creativity and experimentation that strives to support the local arts ecosystem. The space provides artists with an opportunity to experiment, innovate, and grow their artistic practice. While in residence, artists are encouraged to create new work, generate bold ideas, have vision, and make meaningful connections with our visitors and our community.

Current Artist in Residence

Jordan Elliot Prosser

During his residency, Jordan will investigate a local icon of Oshawa: the famous racehorse Northern Dancer and his home at Windfields Farm. This project will continue a series of documentary video and sculpture works (Assembly, 2021 and Familiar, 2020) that map the precarious nature of Oshawa’s post-industrial life. As he continues to ponder the possibilities and impossibilities of a coherent sense of self, Jordan will apply his ongoing auto-ethnographic and documentary approach to his hometown of Oshawa in this new video and sculpture work.
