Cheryl Sourkes Cheryl Sourkes: Public Camera plunges into the Internet universe to fish out hybrid images from Web cams that are both public and private. Sourkes presents her work under the theme of “public camera” until 21 October 2007.
De-con-structions De-con-structions, presented as part of the National Arts Centre’s third biennial Quebec Scene festival, is an intriguing exhibition that sheds light on the works of five Quebec artists; Michel de Broin, Karilee Fuglem, Jean-Pierre Gauthier, Tricia Middleton, and Annie Thibault. Each in their own way, the artists take over the gallery’s space, convert it, disrupt it, and turn it into a laboratory and an experimental space all at once. On display until 3 September 2007.
Inuit Sculpture Now This exhibition presents 25 sculptures made since the 1990s and looks at some of the current ideas and often very subtle changes that influence the artists’ approaches to their subjects and the media in which they work. On show from 30 June to 18 November 2007, Inuit Sculpture Now features the work of 16 artists.
Take advantage of your trip to also visit Renoir Landscapes, presented in Canadian exclusivity at the National Gallery of Canada until 9 September 2007. Admission fees are required for this exhibition.
