Ignite Gallery, formerly known as OCAD University’s Student Gallery, is excited to open its third show in its new gallery space in Kensington Market with Sites of Reconstruction, a group exhibtion curated by Karina Iskandarsjah and featuring work by Jawa El-KhashQendrim HotiMarcus A. Gordon, and Nikole Hidalgo.

Their interdisciplinary practices allude to the complexity of cultural hybridity propelled by contemporary, digital diasporas. They also examine processes of translation in geopolitics by reconstructing and producing environments that exist in a liminal space. Various screens act as portals to parallel worlds where the real, surreal, and imaginary overlap.

We invite you to join us for the opening of this new exhibition on Friday, November 17 from 6 to 9 p.m. The artists and curator will be in attendance. The event is free and open to the public.

The exhibition runs through December 9, 2017.
Ignite Gallery is located at 165 Augusta Avenue (in the heart of Kensington market).

We look forward to seeing you there!
