"Optical Verve: Recent Works by Canadian, American, European and Asian Artists"
2001-02-15 until 2001-04-12
Ottawa Art Gallery
Ottawa, ON, CA Canada

An exhibition of recent works by Canadian, American, European and Asian artists - Seoungho Cho, Jordan Crandall, Manon Labrecque, Kristin Lucas, Kelly Mark, Michael Merrill, Warren Neidich, Franck Scurti, Cathy Sisler, Peter Spaans - who enlist the global city to explore post-photographic vision. The relationship between photography and modern architecture and urban planning has been analysed in depth.

The contemporary artworks featured in the exhibition foreground the implications of digital imaging and its reconfiguration of the city. In many works, this is expressed through the blurring of boundaries between bodies, architecture and space, a fusion operated through such forms of compression as speed, editing, digitization, repetition, immersion and the database. Together, these works point to the ways the city is redefined, inhabited and performed in the era of the digital image and post-photographic vision.
