OAG Lit Up! Outdoor Art Unveiling

  • 50 Mackenzie King Bridge Ottawa, ON Canada (map)

We're taking art outside for one night! Join us as the Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) celebrates two new commissioned works in the front courtyard of the soon to be opened OAG Expansion at 50 Mackenzie King Bridge.

The night will include the spectacular projection artwork Of Buffalo, Bears, and Indian Scouts on the facade of the new OAG cube by Bear Witness and an accompanying DJ set by the JUNO winner. We will also be celebrating the large-scale, interactive light installation Ascension by The Latest Artists which will soon be mounted on the Mackenzie King Bridge wall.

Guests will have a chance to view and purchase the OAG’s inaugural exhibition catalogue Àdisòkàmagan / Nous connaître un peu nous-mêmes / We’ll all become stories; this gorgeous companion catalogue to OAG’s upcoming inaugural exhibition draws together a broad selection of curators, artists, writers, art historians and community members to generate the most extensive and multilayered exploration of the region’s art history and contemporary production to date.

So much to celebrate! Heated tents, festive food and drink, participatory artwork and much more will help to mark the occasion.

We will see you there. Dress warm.

Catalogue: $65 cash, debit or credit accepted
