Weekend Roundup: March 11-13

Friday, March 11

Vernissage à la GNO: LA FUGUE Entering the gallery, the viewer is invited to enter a mirrored tunnel where they are confronted with flashing lights and a plethora of special effects. As a comment on the dizzying self-voyeurism of our era, LA FUGUE amicably teases each of us for our narcissistic tendencies. In fact, Geneviève Thauvette’s interactive installation casts the viewer in a leading role, as their reaction to the work becomes an essential part of the project. As they approach the exit, the size of the tunnel shrinks and the viewer must get down on all fours to find the way out. As our culture becomes increasingly obsessed with the present moment, each of us has a turn, in spite of ourselves, at stardom. 5:00 p.m. @ Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario – 174 Elgin Street
