We invite you to join us for an evening gala dedicated to many insightful installations, performances and exhibitions all conveniently located at our festival headquarters, Geneva Hall, Knox Presbyterian Church.
You’ll find the Knox Church completely transformed by a collection of work that fuses together the architectural, artistic and technological worlds, all revolving around the OAW 2017 theme. These multidisciplinary installation are produced by local Ottawa-Gatineau artists and architects, and consist of physical installations, digital video projections, and live performance.
The OAW team curated these installations with a simple goal in mind: transform Knox Church into a cultural playground open to public, using temporary architectural and technological gestures. As you walk through this space, consider how these artistic expressions challenge physical, biological, social, political and cultural aspects of what is an Ottawa public space.
Throughout the evening you’ll have a chance to meet these amazing creators in person and discuss their work.
Exhibits will be accompanied by live music and informal gathering with drinks and light snacks.
