after Africa is a seminal work in the practice of artist nichola feldman-kiss. The three-channel audio/video installation brings together key symbols drawn from the artist’s autobiography. The artwork reflects a sustained artistic inquiry into Colonial frameworks while focusing on the body as a contested site of cultural production.

Interconnected is a group exhibition that features artwork that explores the relationships between depth, form, and colour by pairing and layering compositional elements.

2023 marks the Ottawa Art Gallery’s 35th anniversary as an organization and five years in the new OAG building. In celebration of these milestones, this exhibition features a selection of recent historical acquisitions, drawing on works created before 1988 and acquired in the last five years.
