The Voix Jeunes Talents Exhibition will take place at the Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle, from June 2 to 16, 2016. Curated by Dyana Ouvrard, the exhibition explores the theme of Digital Generation.
Digital art opens for us the doors to a magical era, where smart objects and ubiquitous environments become producers of meaning. From this point of view, this art connects us to “the other”, with a dense yet ephemeral connection. For this project Voix Jeunes Talents, Voix Visuelle chose generation Y, the digital natives, the millennials, born between 1980 and 1995. How do these Ottawa’s young artists of the digital avant-garde manage to use technology with curiosity, critical thinking, talent and humour?
The opening of the exhibition will take place on Thursday, June 2 at 5 p.m. at Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle. Three prizes will be awarded at the opening and Walanyo the musician will perform at 18:15. 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.
The Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle would like to thank the Ontario Arts Council, Canadian Heritage, the City of Ottawa and the Community Foundation of Ottawa for their support.
