Party celebrating the opening of CUAG’s fall exhibitions

Monday, 17 September 2018, 5 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

CUAG invites you to a party celebrating the opening of our fall exhibitions Alootook Ipellie: Walking Both Sides of an Invisible Border and Here Be Dragons.

Alootook Ipellie: Walking Both Sides of an Invisible Border
Curated by Sandra Dyck, Heather Igloliorte, Christine Lalonde
17 September – 09 December 2018
This first retrospective of Alootook Ipellie's work explores his extraordinary career as an artist, writer and cartoonist. With great wit and passion, Ipellie gave voice to important cultural, political and social issues affecting Inuit Nunangat.

Here Be Dragons
Curated by Emily Falvey
17 September – 09 December 2018
Gisele Amantea, Sonny Assu, Rebecca Belmore, Scott Benesiinaabandan, Laurent Craste, Juan Ortiz-Apuy, Sayeh Sarfaraz
Can art cut through ideologies to reveal urgent political truths? Emily Falvey explores this question through the work of seven contemporary artists who, rather than attempting to instruct or persuade, use ambiguous and symbolic images that are open to interpretation.

The party takes place at CUAG from 5:00 - 7:30 p.m.

Natan Obed, President of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, and Dr. Benoit-Antoine Bacon, President of Carleton University, will offer opening remarks at 6:00 p.m. (with ASL interpretation). DJ OH JAY (FEELS) will spin sets.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome!

CUAG is an accessible space with barrier-free washrooms and elevator.

Discount parking passes ($4.00 flat rate) will be available for purchase at the tunnel entrance from 4:45 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Please see the visiting page of CUAG’s website for directions.
