Upcoming event at CUAG:

CU Students and friends! This winter at Carleton University Art Gallery (CUAG), we’re having an Art Picnic in conjunction with our current exhibitions, Sharon Hayes: Loudspeakers and Other Forms of Listening and Dennis Tourbin: The Language of Visual Poetry!

Friday, February 28, 2014

6 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Inspired by Tourbin’s poetry and Hayes’ interest in the power of the voice, you’ll enjoy performances by local spoken word artists and acoustic musicians from the Carleton community. Explore the exhibitions and make personalized buttons inspired by Hayes’ student protest installations. There will also be a ‘zine exchange, so bring some to swap or make your own in the gallery. All materials are provided.

Bring baked goods or other treats for the potluck picnic table! Coffee, tea, and pop will also be available.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Admission is free and everyone is welcome!

Organized in collaboration with Carleton Art History Undergraduate Society and Visual Arts Club Carleton.

On View: Dennis Tourbin, Canadian Writing Today with Matisse, from 1984, A Painted History, 1984-5. Watercolour on paper. Collection of Nadia Laham.
While in Paris through a Canada Council for the Arts residency in 1982, Dennis Tourbin’s approach to painting underwent a dramatic shift as he experimented with watercolours in place of acrylics and began incorporating images into his paintings.
Trading lightly structured lines of text for loose, collage-inspired compositions, Tourbin began painting the fragments he tore from newspapers and magazines, rather than simply employing the shape as a framing devise for his poems. He meticulously replicated the varied fonts of international new headlines alongside photographs, postcards of masterworks from museums, and ephemera like transit transfers and postmarked stamps.
You can see this work (along with the 35 other watercolours from the series) in Dennis Tourbin: The Language of Visual Poetry, on view at CUAG until 27 April.

Here are some snaps from Saturday’s Valentine’s Day Linocut + Letterpress Printmaking workshop. Thank you to all the participants for their awesome prints (so creative!) and our instructor Guillermo Trejo, who was very patient with us all.
If you’re interested in taking a letterpress workshop, the Ottawa School of Art offers day-long classes. The next one is coming up soon!

"I Want to Hold Your Hand": Watching TV footage of The Beatles’ first visit to the United States 50 years ago has us thinking of a more innocent, pre-twerking time. Visit our online gallery and see how the tender act of holding a loved one’s hand can reveal a deeper passion—I think you’ll understand.

Ottawa Art Scene: February 6 - 12

So far, this week has already been packed with visual arts events, and this city is just getting started!

Tonight, the Ottawa Art Gallery celebrates the opening of their winter exhibitions David R. Harper: Entre le Chien et le Loup and Remi Theriault: Front. Harper’s objects exemplify carefully considered ventures into the history of humankind, while Theriault’s large-scale colour photographs focus on the transformation of World War I sites. Make sure you hit up the afterparty at St. Alban’s for the Destroyer show.

Also happening tonight is SAW Video’s annual screening of new video works by members, RESOLUTION 2014. Head to the Bytowne Theatre for some drama, documentary, animation, and experimental works. This is a really great opportunity to see what local artists have been up to recently, all in one go!

If you’re in Westboro, you can also check out the opening at Exposure Gallery, above Thyme & Again (and why not pick up one of their Valentine’s Day packages). Their new exhibition, Inkerman, depicting a return to the places of old memory from photographer Michael Marquette’s small town of Inkerman, Ontario. Curated by Olivia Johnston, the photographs bring a tangible and visual recollection to the nostalgia of home.

And if that’s not enough choice, and you’re in the mood for some DIY (and karaoke), head to Shanghai tonight for some Hearts’n’Crafts, hosted by Ravenswing and China Doll.

On Saturday night, Wurm Gallery at Invisible Cinema will be hosting SOMEONE TALKED with Chris Colohan and Joseph Sulier, who will be doing readings from Negative Space and A House full of Broken Instruments.

I’m running out of time, and I’m sure there are many more artsy things happening around the city! Tweet me what I’ve missed!

On View: Sharon Hayes, I Saved Her a Bullet,  2012. Transparency and overhead projector.

From the CUAG winter exhibition Sharon Hayes: Loudspeakers and Other Forms of Listening, on view until 27 April.

I Saved Her a Bullet revisits an iconic moment of 1970s queer activism: Anita Bryant, an Oklahoma beauty queen, Top 40 singer, and anti-homosexuality campaigner becoming the first person to be “pied” in the face as a political action.

Watch the clip above. As Jenni Olson writes in Sharon Hayes’ catalogue for her Whitney exhibition, “Raw, immediate, wonderfully gay, and undeniably funny, Anita Bryant: Pie-in-the-Face…is a historic document of pre-ACT UP creative queer activism - a terrific example of gay people taking a stand against the virulent homophobes of the Christian Right. Contemporary LGBT folks may want to note that last year’s glitter bombings are situated within a proud heritage that includes this imaginative culinary political gesture.”

For more, join us for Sharon Hayes’ Artist Talk TONIGHT at 7pm. It’s free and everyone is welcome!
