Upcoming Event at CUAG: Artist talk with Sharon Hayes on Tuesday, 4 February at 7 p.m.

“A special mention for Sharon Hayes for making us re-think the importance of alterity and the complexity of the interplay between the personal and public.” - Jury of the Venice Biennale, 2013

The acclaimed American artist Sharon Hayes is an attentive listener. She is attuned to present-day voices, with an ear to the reverberations of voices from the past. Her works take the form of various “speech acts” that address the intertwining of history, politics, love, and public speech. She explores such diverse topics as student activism of the 1960s and 1970s, the Patty Hearst kidnapping, and gender and sexual politics.

Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to meet Sharon Hayes! This is the first time her work is being presented in Ottawa. The artist talk is held in conjunction with Hayes’ CUAG exhibition, “Loudspeakers and Other Forms of Listening,” curated by Heather Anderson. The exhibition is an ambitious project that transforms CUAG’s mezzanine gallery like never before. It features video and audio installations, works on paper, and textiles made by Hayes over the last decade.

Sharon Hayes has exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions extensively over the past fifteen years, including at the New Museum, Tate Modern, MoMA PS1, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Deutsche Guggenheim, Venice Biennale (2013) Documenta 12 (2007), the Istanbul Biennial (2009), the Yokohama Triennial (2008), the Guangzhou Triennial (2008), and PERFORMA05. She divides her time between Portland, Maine, and New York City, where she is an assistant professor in the School of Art at Cooper Union. She is represented by Tanya Leighton Gallery, Berlin.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome!

Ottawa Art Scene: January 23 - 29

Installation is speeding up at CUAG this week, as everyone works hard to get ready for our upcoming winter exhibitions, Sharon Hayes: Loudspeakers and Other Forms of Listening and Dennis Tourbin: The Language of Visual Poetry.

While we’re closed until the official opening reception on February 3rd, there are lots of other ways to get your art kick in Ottawa this week.

Tonight, head to Voix Visuelle in Vanier, for the opening reception of Les mécanismes trompeurs a new exhibition from Thérèse Guy, in which she examines the contiguity between photography and new imaging technologies. She gets her inspiration from the news that inform us of the state of the world and make us assimilate the information from all sources.

If you couldn’t get enough of Laura Letinsky’s still life photographs, the Redwall Gallery at School of Photographic Arts: Ottawa has just the thing: a new exhibition by one of the school’s students, Zachary Pantalone, calledStill Life. Pantalone’s still life work offers vivid colours and textures of food inspired by American Mark Rothko’s transitional “multiform” or colour field paintings. The opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Friday evening.

Also on Friday night, Patrick Mikhail Gallery presents PRIMERfeaturing new works by four artists: Colin Muir Dorward, Natasha Mazurka, Amy Schissel, and Andrew Smith. This is a great chance to check out new projections and directions of some great local artists. There will also be an artist talk on Thursday, February 20th.

The National Gallery of Canada is hosting a Valuation Day on Saturday, in partnership with Heffel Auction House. You can book time with one of their professional appraisers to look at that dusty (potentially valuable) painting, sculpture, or photograph. Our own personal Antique Roadshow!

Ottawa Art Scene: January 16 - 22

Tonight, we’re really excited to be presenting the Carleton Community Performance Night. There will be everything from spoken word to synth music to video projections… Pretty cool stuff, all by Carleton students.

There are a few things happening around town as well this weekend. A new show at the Ottawa Art Gallery opened on the 11th called Bringing it Home: Abstraction and the Painters Eleven. One of the gallery’s Firestone Collection shows, the group exhibition features painters like Jack Bush and Kazuo Nakamura, and looks at the Toronto-based painting group, the Painters Eleven.

On Saturday morning, there is a Meet the Curator talk at the National Gallery of Canada. Take a tour of the excellent Artists, Artisans, and Architects with the prolific curator Charlie Hill. Even if you’ve already seen the show, it’ll definitely be worth it to go again in order to hear about how the extensive exhibition was put together.

If you’re looking for something fun to do on Monday night, head to Oz Kafe for some drinks, music and photography by local artist James Erdeg. With a name like BEAUTY SURROUNDS YOU BECAUSE YOU CREATE IT, what’s stopping you?

Have a great weekend!
