Marking its 25th anniversary and Carleton University’s 75th anniversary, Carleton University Art Gallery (CUAG) presents Open Edition, inspired by the gallery’s rich collection of prints by Canadian and international artists. The exhibition’s reflective theme of looking back and looking forward brings a compelling selection of prints from the CUAG collection into dialogue with prints by contemporary artists Ciara Phillips, Mohamed Thiam, Étienne Tremblay-Tardif, Ningiukulu Teevee, Guillermo Trejo, Ericka Walker, and Melanie Yugo.
Open Edition includes a special project by print-lover Guillermo Trejo, featuring custom “compositions” of prints selected from CUAG’s collection. The multilayered conversations generated by the exhibition will explore the medium and its messages, past and present.
Presented by the Carleton University Art Gallery in partnership with the NAC’s Canada Scene.
