Post by Katrina Bray. Go Forth and Multiply is the graduation exhibition of Cara Tierney, an MFA student at the University of Ottawa.  The show features 11 large digital prints of Tierney’s self-portraiture, in which she appears in one or many iterations.  Employing technical proficiency, attention to detail, and a keen compositional eye, she creates bold tableaus with – in many cases – a strong classical reference.

Projecting six separate short films simultaneously in different spots, the show created a gallery of moving images on the walls of the underpass, which is located between the National Arts Centre and the Bytown Museum. “We use... | Continue reading article

Written by on

We’ve got a rainbow of festivities happening with Capital Pride week wrapping up on Sunday – there’s the usual parade spectacular (including the Dusty Owl Reading Series), a youth prom and masquerade, and a mini-music festival down at City Hall... | Continue reading article
