Presented in collaboration with the National Capital Commission

Installed in a former bank building in the heart of downtown Ottawa, this
exhibition explores how the relationship between the artist and real events,
time and space has shifted over the last few years, to the point where we
now question the value of art and the role of the viewer and the exhibition
venue. Art today dissects the experience of reality: it stretches the boundaries between art and the modern world, it often engages the viewer directly, and it redefines our relationships to art and to each other. All the works in the show were created or adapted specifically for this venue, and are displayed in spaces formerly used for banking activities and transactions. Making Real imposes a unique perspective on the space: by inserting art into the domain of business, finance and power, of identity and surveillance, it offers a new take on reality.
