Ignite Gallery, formerly known as OCAD University’s Student Gallery, is excited to open its new gallery space in Kensington Market with “Low Hanging Fruit (The Hungry Lion Throws Itself on the Antelope),” a group exhibition featuring work by Emily Grace Harrison, Cristine Yunyk, Coutney Gillatly, and Owen Marshall.

“Low Hanging Fruit” is an immersive installation featuring sculpture, painting, drawing, and animation works that come together to form a pop-dystopian garden environment. Bright colours and multiple narratives overwhelm the senses, referencing the artificiality of curated urban gardens while challenging the “seriousness” of the white cube.

We invite you to join us to celebrate both the relaunch of the gallery and this new exhibition on Wednesday, September 20 from 7 to 11 p.m. The artists will be in attendance. The event is free and open to the public.

The exhibition runs through September 30. Ignite Gallery is located at 165 Augusta Avenue (in the heart of Kensington market).

For more information please contact the gallery (ignitegallery@ocadu.ca) or visit our website: https://www.ocadu.ca/gallery/ignite-gallery.htm

We look forward to seeing you there!
