Marking CUAG’s 25th anniversary and Carleton University’s 75th anniversary, CUAG presents Open Edition. The exhibition looks back and looks forward, opening up multi-layered conversations that explore the printmaking medium and its messages, past and present.

Open Edition features a compelling group of historical and contemporary prints selected from the university’s collection and made by Canadian and international artists from the 16th century to the present day. It brings these artworks into dialogue with contemporary prints and print-based installations by guest artists Phillips (Glasgow), Teevee (Kinngait), Thiam (Ottawa), Trejo (Ottawa), Tremblay-Tardif (Montréal), Walker (Halifax) and Yugo (Ottawa).

Open Edition also includes A Galaxy Reconfigured, a special collection intervention by Trejo featuring intriguing constellations of historic European prints selected from CUAG’s collection.

Open Edition is curated by Heather Anderson and Sandra Dyck, and presented in partnership with the National Arts Centre’s Canada Scene.

Access: Please note that the usual entrances to the St. Patrick’s Building (which houses CUAG) are closed due to construction. A temporary entrance is located at the back of the building. Please consult this map on the CUAG website: http://www.cuag.ca/index.php/visiting/directions/
