Carleton University Art Gallery CUAG

Open Edition

Curated by Heather Anderson and Sandra Dyck; Presented in partnership with the NAC's Canada Scene

05 June – 20 August 2017

Marking Carleton University Art Gallery’s 25th anniversary and Carleton University’s 75th anniversary, CUAG presents Open Edition. The exhibition looks back and looks forward, opening up multilayered conversations that explore the printmaking medium and its messages, past and present.

Open Edition features a compelling group of historical and contemporary prints selected from the University’s collection and made by Canadian and international artists from the sixteenth century to the present day. It brings these artworks into dialogue with contemporary prints and print-based installations by guest artists Ciara Phillips (Glasgow), Ningiukulu Teevee (Kinngait), Mohamed Thiam (Ottawa), Guillermo Trejo (Ottawa), Étienne Tremblay-Tardif (Montréal), Ericka Walker (Halifax) and Melanie Yugo (Ottawa).

Open Edition also includes A Galaxy Reconfigured, a special collection intervention by artist Guillermo Trejo featuring intriguing constellations of historic European prints selected from CUAG’s collection.

Open Edition is presented in partnership with the National Arts Centre’s Canada Scene.
