Blue like an Orange is a group exhibition featuring the work of B.C. artists working in sculpture and installation. Inspired by a well-known poem by surrealist poet Paul Éluard (The world is blue like an orange), the featured artists explore the transformation of everyday objects and materials in ways that reference surrealist and post-minimalist strategies, including juxtaposition, assisted ready-mades, and accumulations.

This exhibition includes the talents of Samuel Roy-Bois, Brendan Tang, Sonny Assu, Lucy Pullen, Rhonda Weppler, and Trevor Mahovsky. Visit the Ottawa Art Gallery to experience the work of this amazing group of artists!
