Tonight marks the launch of Guerilla Magazine’s week-long GuerillaCRAWL, in support of the magazine’s 10th anniversary edition. Check out tons of art, media, and cultural events this week, starting at Patrick Mikhail Gallery with the art exhibition "K-14", street photography by Jonathan Lorange. Throughout the week there will be vernissages, art parties, film screenings, and more! A great way to celebrate creativity in the city.
Also tonight, Christopher Rhode, the programmer at SAW Video, has curated an evening of Dennis Tourbin’s video works, ABCDelevision: The Videos of Dennis Tourbin, in conjunction with CUAG’s exhibition Dennis Tourbin: The Language of Visual Poetry. The screening is happening at Club SAW, so head downtown to explore this other aspect of Tourbin’s artistic practice.
Speaking of supporting the art community in Ottawa, on Friday evening, the University of Ottawa B.F.A. graduating class has organized an auction at Club SAW to raise money for their upcoming final exhibition. If you’re on the look-out for young artists and looking to expand (or start) your art collection, this is a great place to start!
On Tuesday evening, the Ottawa Public Library has invited Carleton U. Art History professor Carol Payne to give a talk on the National Film Board’s photography collection, discussing in from the perspective of nation-building in the mid-twentieth century.
Have a good week!
