Meryl McMaster: Confluence

Curated by Heather Anderson

02 May – 28 August 2016

Curated by Heather Anderson

Keeping Record: The Documentary Impulse in Inuit Art

Curated by Amy Prouty

02 May – 28 August 2016

This exhibition examines traditional subjects addressed by Inuit artists as acts of cultural resilience, in which they record their knowledge during periods of seismic change.

Adrian Göllner: small Trinity

Curated by Heather Anderson

Presented in collaboration with the University of Ottawa’s Department of Visual Arts MFA program.

15 August – 28 August 2016

Over the course of his MFA program, Göllner has shifted from poetic to explosive renderings of time, motion, and matter. Stemming from his Cold War military upbringing and evoking fears of our present societal condition, these recent sculptural works capture the shape and energy of explosions as tactile, cast forms.
