National Gallery of Canada
Another glorious weekend is upon us, Ottawa. A weekend so full of fun, that it is impossible to do it all. Despite this, we like to keep you in the know re: all things cool, so here you have it – the Weekend Roundup.
Three new exhibitions opened on November 3 in the Canadian Photography Institute at the National Gallery of Canada.
Sanita Fejzic: “All queer cinema is should be celebrated and I hope you’ll check this film out and enjoy it for what it is: a lighthearted coming out story told from an immigrant perspective.”
The Inside Out Film Festival is back in town from November 10–12, 2017 at the National Gallery of Canada.
From October 19, 2017 until March 18, 2018, the Canadian Biennial will run at the National Gallery of Canada. The Biennial provides the gallery an opportunity to curate a show of the departments of Contemporary Art, Indigenous Art and the Canadian Photography Institute’s acquisitions since 2014.
For decades, the Ottawa International Animation Festival has attracted film and animation buffs, art lovers and filmmakers from around the globe. You won’t want to miss this year’s exciting line-up of screenings, workshops, panels and parties.
With sun in the forecast, this weekend looks to be a great one to spend outside. Whether you’re enjoying CityFolk or running the Army Run, now is the time to (finally!) enjoy some summer weather!
The 2017 RBC Canadian Painting Competition at the National Gallery of Canada presents fifteen emerging artists selected from across Canada. With one artwork each, the exhibition is a bright milieu of contemporary artists working within, and testing the limits of, the medium of painting across the country.
The National Gallery of Canada’s foray to Canada Scene is Our Masterpieces, Our Stories, a visual art exhibition on from June 15 to September 4. It is a sweeping look backwards at the breadth of Canadian art from “time immemorial” to 1967. With a bird’s eye view of Canadian art through the centuries, this exhibit is a good starter before you delve into other visual art exhibits this summer.
Alright Ottawa, time to get ready for Canada Day! This year is going to be bigger and better than ever before as we celebrate 150 years since confederation. With so much going on, we decided to share some of our picks for your best bets this long weekend! So don your red and white and go celebrate!
Greeted by bright blue walls, visitors who enter Our Masterpieces, Our Stories, the exhibition opened this month as part of the new Canadian and Indigenous Galleries, are struck with three noticeable changes: the open-concept exhibition design, the bold juxtapositioning of cultures and timelines, and a clear new focus on showcasing Indigenous art.
On June 15, the National Gallery will open Canadian and Indigenous Art: From Time Immemorial to 1967. This represents the final stage of a complete changeover of its permanent Canadian galleries, with includes the contemporary galleries (Canadian and Indigenous Art: 1968 to Present), and Photography in Canada, 1960 to 2000). It’s huge installation that includes some 800 work.
Another weekend is upon us! We have paid our dues and Mother Nature is rewarding us with (mainly) sunshine and blue skies on this first of the warmer months’ long weekends. Burgeoning with goings on right out of the gate, you might want to consider taking Friday off work. Begin the festivities early and then full steam ahead until Monday.
The National Gallery of Canada has extended summer hours and reduced admission for youth and students.
Photography is an art form that continues to capture the popular imagination, as was seen in huge turnout of 800 attendees at the public opening on April 6.
