BC Scene

The arts and culture of British Columbia come to Ottawa/Gatineau

April 21 to May 3, 2009

Transcontinental Divide

April 21 - May 29, 2009

Gallery 101

301 1/2 Bank Street, Ottawa

Free Event

Transcontinental Divide is a collaboration between two artist run centres, Gallery 101 in Ottawa, and the Helen Pitt Gallery in Vancouver. The exhibition is conceptually based with five B.C. artists – Raymond Boisjoly, Steven Hubert, Sara Mameni, Isabelle Pauwels and Ron Tran – and five Ottawa artists – Karina Bergmans, Jen Cook, Roy Lu, Minh Nguyen, and Stephan Thompson – exchanging ideas and collaborating to realize an exhibition in each other’s gallery space.

The exhibition fits into the idea of an artist run centre as a place of experimentation with the ability to support emerging and disparate practice. The exhibition is co-curated by Paul Kajander and Leanne L’Hirondelle.

About the Scene

Imagine 600 artists from B.C. representing all disciplines, performing in the national spotlight on the stages of Ottawa/Gatineau: that's BC Scene, presented by the National Arts Centre, spring 2009.
