Reception

Join us in celebrating the opening of three exhibits at the Art Gallery of Guelph!

Qautamaat is an exhibition of photography curated by Taqralik Partridge, who will also be our literary guest for Friday night’s lecture. Leslie McCue will be exhibiting recent work in her show titled Bagiskaagewin. We’ve also teamed up with Ed Video to co-present an exhibit of Nathalie Bujold’s video and sculptural work spanning almost 30 years. Médiatique is curated by Scott McGovern of Ed Video Media Arts Centre and is presented by the Art Gallery of Guelph and ELLEPHANT in conjunction with the ArtsEverywhere Festival.

Médiatique features video projects and sculptures spanning Nathalie Bujold’s career of almost 30 years of artistic production. Presented together in one room as a video environment, analog and digital artworks highlight Bujold’s formalist ability to both dissect and expand her subjects. The traditional expectations of the purpose of video – technically, conceptually, and psychologically – are reconfigured throughout, highlighting a constantly renewed hybridization. Similar to many traditional arts and crafts, Bujold’s techniques require precision, repetition, and commitment. The result is a glimpse into her distinctive enigmatic, bold, and sometimes funny universe, through artworks that demonstrate the potential of video to create new ways to express time, form, and space.

Médiatique is organized by the Art Gallery of Guelph and ELLEPHANT in conjunction with the ArtsEverywhere Festival. The exhibition is presented with the support of the Ontario Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts.
