Nuit Blanche at OCAD U 2018

Saturday, September 29, 2018 - 7:00pm to Sunday, September 30, 2018 - 7:00am

OCAD University will feature an immersive digital work by Daniel Iregui at 100 McCaul St. and Onsite Gallery, located at 199 Richmond St. W., the university’s flagship professional and public gallery, will be open all night for Nuit Blanche 2018.

  1. At 100 McCaul St.

    FORWARD
    Created by Daniel Iregui
    Produced by Iregular

    Curated by Linda Columbus, Programs Coordinator, Onsite Gallery
    Organized by Onsite Gallery

    FORWARD is an installation of two “tunnels” that generate infinite ways to get to a distant point on the horizon. The work alludes to the future becoming the present, and disappearing. The viewer travels through endless visual tunnels, evoking a feeling of forever propelling forward. Yet, tethered by the physical body, a conflicting sensation of remaining static in the present will remind viewers that: you are “here”. Now.

    FORWARD is a sensory experience of sight and sound that intimates that the present is always only an effervescent instant.

    Daniel Iregui (iregular.io) is a new media artist who creates interactive sculptures, spaces and architectural interventions using technology as a tool and an aesthetic. He works with the infinite and random combinations produced when an audiovisual system is open for the audience to transform it.

    In 2010 Daniel founded Iregular, an interactive content creation studio where he produces his work and commercial commissions. He was born in Bogotá, Colombia in 1981 and currently lives and works from Montréal.

2018 New Generation Photography Award Recipient Bios:

Elisa Julia Gilmour is an emerging Canadian artist producing still and moving images. Her work engages with the notion of ephemerality through gestural storytelling. Her most recent project, Éperdument (Madly) (2016), which included a three-channel video installation and a publication of short stories, investigates how a Corsican mythological figure has enlivened a contemporary sense of identity. She has exhibited at the Art Museum at the University of Toronto, the Ryerson Image Centre and the Art Gallery of Mississauga.

Meryl McMaster is a Canadian-based artist and photography graduate from the Ontario College of Art and Design. She was born and raised in Ottawa and is of Plains Cree/European decent. Her work explores questions of identity, representation, perception, myth, memory and the environment. Her distinct approach to photographic self-portraiture has been influenced by her experiences working in and exploring remote Canadian landscapes, as well as by contemplations over the complexities of her family heritage. Her solo exhibition Confluence (Curated by Heather Anderson and originating at Carleton University Art Gallery) is travelling to four more venues across Canada.

Deanna Pizzitelli is a Canadian photo-based artist and educator. She completed her BFA in Photography at Ryerson University, and her MFA at the University of Arizona. With an emphasis on the emotional landscape, Pizzitelli uses analogue processes to explore themes of fantasy, desire, longing and loss. Her practice is motivated by the act of travel, the visual residue of her many intersections with landscape, wildlife and culture. Pizzitelli's work was recently exhibited at AIPAD: The Photography Show, New York, and Paris Photo, 2017. She has attended residencies in Canada, Iceland and Portugal. She is represented by Stephen Bulger Gallery in Toronto.

Onsite Gallery is pleased to participate in the annual international event, Slow Art Day.

What is Slow Art Day?
Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art. One day each year, people all over the world visit local museums and galleries to look at art slowly. Participants look at five works of art for 10 minutes each and then meet together to talk about their experience. That’s it. Simple by design, the goal is to focus on the art and the art of seeing. For more info, visit Slow Art Day's website here.

What is happening at Onsite Gallery for Slow Art Day
Every hour on the hour (12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.), one artwork in our current exhibition, The Sunshine Eaters, will be selected for focused viewing. Visitors will take 10 minutes to view the chosen artwork, which will be immediately followed by a group discussion led by one of our gallery staff members.

All are welcome to join the conversation!

In addition, available for public viewing on a special one-night loan will be the 1905 written Treaty No. 9 and diary of one of Treaty No. 9’s commissioners, Daniel MacMartin.

Tony Matelli Artist Talk

The Sunshine Eaters
Wednesday, February 28, 2018 - 6:30pm

Tony Matelli, an exhibiting artist in Onsite Gallery's exhibition, The Sunshine Eaters, will speak about his art practice.

Tony Matelli's sculptures exhibit a sophisticated technical execution and aim to create psychological spaces that draw our attention to the sentient where wonder, sadness, empathy and hope develop. He has had solo exhibitions at Leo Koenig (NY), Künstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Uppsala Konstmuseum (Sweden) and a mid-career survey at the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum (Denmark). Matelli is represented by Marlborough Contemporary (NY).

 

The Sunshine Eaters is an original multi-sensory exhibition that highlights how artists and designers look to the land and its plants, flowers and trees as a means to imagine and conjure hope in the face of local and global crises.

Featuring work by: Shary Boyle, Nick Cave, Robert Holmes, Jim Holyoak, Brian Jungen, Jessica Karuhanga, Alexandra Kehayoglou, Nina Leo and Moez Surani, Tony Matelli, Alanis Obomsawin, Ebony G. Patterson and Winnie Truong. Curated by Lisa Deanne Smith.

Exhibition runs January 10 to April 15, 2018.
