Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle presents, from September 11 to October 13, 2015, the exhibition One and No One, by Monica Marquez. The artist explores Twitter’s semantics and its potentially disempowering effect on individuals.
Thanks to social media, awareness about global issues is raised and access to information, increased. However, lack of critical thought and a sort of herd mentality is encouraged. Are we conscious beings or are we entranced in some twilight too busy twittering to think? The more we become one with the crowd, the more we become no one.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on Thursday, September 17, at 5 p.m. at Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle. The gallery is located at 67 Beechwood Avenue (2nd floor), in Vanier, and is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday.
Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle would like to thank the Ontario Arts Council, Canadian Heritage and the City of Ottawa for their support.
