DISLOCATION: SIX VIEWS OF OUR COMTEMPORARY LANDSCAPE
Vernissage: Thursday, January 12, 2017: 18:00 - 20:00
These images are selections from the recent work of six visual artists, stimulating viewers to reflect on the flux in an environment undergoing relentless alteration.
As our world unfolds we regularly face disturbances – whether it’s the demise of manufacturing jobs in Eastern Ontario, derelict sites and facilities marked for removal, façades we normally do not see, unexpected encounters with homelessness, or catastrophic events.
Tied together by David Thoreau's observation that "it is not what you look at that matters, it is what you see", these members of Ottawa’s Studio Zone V photographic collective present a demanding look at this dissonance in our environment. They present perspectives on several of the ‘dislocations’ that confront us today, and challenge us to examine the impact on the rhythms of our modern existence.

Exposure Gallery is a creative collaboration between the School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa and Thyme and Again. This space functions not only as a sophisticated gallery space, but also as a restaurant, a gathering space, and a venue for special events. Through this collaboration, we hope to strengthen the existing community and to introduce a new audience to the appreciation of photo-based art. The gallery is located on the top floor of Thyme and Again.
