Gallery115: Annex presents: (nouveau) flaneur, photographic works by Richard Jansen Exhibition: April 1, 2011-June 17, 2011 Vernissage: April 1, 2011, 5pm-7pm
We are pleased to announce the opening of Gallery 115: Annex, which is situated on the 6th floor of the Morisset library, on the University of Ottawa Campus. (nouveau) flâneur is the first exhibition to be shown in the new satellite gallery, and marks significant advancement in the awareness and celebration of student art on campus.
The flaneur, birthed of 19th century urbanization, observes the workings and cityscapes of a society continually in flux. The many impressions of the flâneur manifest themselves in a variety of media such as writing, painting, and photography and are subject to change with society's embrace of new media. In his artistic practice, Richard Jansen illustrates the way in which a 21st century flâneur adapts and responds to the omnipresence of technology within society.
Curated by Natasha Chaykowski
The vernissage will take place on Friday April 1, 2011, from 5pm-7pm, in the University of Ottawa's Morisset library, 6th floor.
Your attendance is warmly welcomed

En même temps que l’on se déplace, on habite…
Sous la forme d’un jeu nomade, des modules de bois sur roues invitent le visiteur à les manipuler, les déplacer, les organiser comme bon lui semble. Les élémnts mobiles
sont source d’expériences diverses. Une forêt de cloisons mouvantes engagera le visiteur à créer ses propres pièces, espaces, couloirs ou labyrinthes, dans la plus joyeuse liberté. Un paysage mobile, donc, d’apparence trompeusement simple, et un brin communautaire.
L’artiste remercie la Ville de Montmagny, le Conseil des arts du Canada ainsi que le Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec pour leur soutien dans la réalisation de ce projet.

FILIATIONS by Serge Marchetta
at Centre d’exposition L’Imagier
The Centre d’exposition L’Imagier is pleased to host the exhibition FILiations by Serge Marchetta, running from April 1 to May 22, 2011. The opening reception will take place on Friday, April 1 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Both whimsical and strange, Serge Marchetta’s works employ the fundamentals of geometric abstraction. Using thread, the artist “draws” in space, creating installations that place time and the spectator at the heart of his exploration. His exhibition features a body of works composed of drawings, objects on the floor, a video and site-specific compositions.
Serge Marchetta lives and works in Montréal. Since he completed his Bachelor`s degree in visual arts at the Université du Québec à Montréal, Serge Marchetta has participated to more than thirty individual and collective exhibitions. He has notably participated in the following exhibits, Oser le temps presented at Centre d’exposition Circa in Montréal (2010), InFILtration at Centre d’exposition Léo-Ayotte in Shawinigan (2009), Fil rouge at artist-run center le GRAVE (Groupement des arts visuels de Victoriaville) in Victoriaville (2008) and Linea at Galerie SAS in Montréal (2007).
Serge Marchetta received many prizes and some of his works are part of public collections notably the Ostrava Museum’s collection and the City of Montreal’s collection. He is also involved in his community as a curator, galerist and active member of associations of artists.
The Centre d’exposition L’Imagier is a not-for-profit organisation engaged in the promotion of contemporary visual arts in the Outaouais region. L’Imagier also coordinates events and shows presented in the Parc de L’Imaginaire. The Centre’s activities attract over 4,000 people every year.
L’Imagier now houses a new boutique featuring arts and crafts from around Quebec!
L’Imagier thanks its members, the ministère Culture, Communications et Condition féminine du Québec and the Ville de Gatineau.
Join Venus Envy for Queer Voices, Saturday, April 16th for an amazing night of readings featuring Farzana Doctor! Also with Sean Zio, Festrell, and dillon black, three incredible local queer writers.
Doors are at 8, show starts at 8:30. Event is free, but donations will be happily accepted for the Venus Envy bursary fund!
Farzana Doctor's first novel, Stealing Nasreen, received critical acclaim and earned a devoted readership upon its release in 2007. She is currently touring her second book, Six Metres of Pavement (Dundurn, 2011), a novel about tragedy, redemption and unexpected love. Besides novels, Doctor has written on social work and diversity-related topics, and provides private practice consulting and psychotherapy services. She lives in Toronto where she is co-curator of the Brockton Writers Series. www.farzanadoctor.com
"Sean Zio celebrates love in the best way he knows how: through poetry. Since 2004, he has been warming audiences with his heartfelt spoken word performances. Preferring to be with others instead of being alone, he contributes to a number of groups throughout the Ottawa area: he is a member of the performance troupe the Kymeras (www.kymeras.ca); he is a co-founder and key organizer of the Ravenswing Do-It-Yourself Fair; and runs a weekly, open-membership creative writing group called the Creative Writing Play Date (www.creativewritingplaydate.com)."
Relatively new to the spoken word scene, dillon black hopes to spread awareness and activism everywhere she goes. A Queer Ottawa community organizer, and trained support worker with the Coalition for a Carleton Sexual Assault Centre, dillon has been in a hot steamy love affair with social justice for quite some time. All the while, simultaneously dropping the word on how crucial sex-positivity is wherever we go- whatever we do! dillon truly believes that radical support is the ultimate form of resistance in dealing with systemic violence and oppression. Raise it.
Faye C. Estrella, aka Festrell, is a published freelance writer and performance poet. As the artistic director of Voices of Venus, Festrell hosts the monthly feminist showcase and has been called a community builder and QPOC activist.
