Ben Globerman – Palimpsest I
May 12 to July 8, 2022
Artist tour: Sunday, May 29, 2 pm (presented in English)

A palimpsest is an original writing material where the text or composition has been erased and replaced with new text, while traces of old text remain. This video exhibit creates a sonic palimpsest that deconstructs and recomposes traditional choral pieces from the Renaissance period using a background of historical motifs with the choral collaboration of two local choirs. It focuses on owing gratitude to music that has been passed down through the generations.

Corridor 45|75
Rideau Station, O-Train Line 1
West Concourse – Level 2

Alexander Findlay – Alter Ego
Now until June 26, 2022

Alexander Finlay, Robin, 202

While on the West Concourse of O-Train Line One Rideau station, walk by the photo portraits of superheroes and you will notice that the models don’t exactly reflect the personae of the character they are representing. That is the intent of the portraiture by photographic artist, Alexander Findlay, in his exhibit called Alter Ego. The exhibit allows the models to reflect how they see themselves – by personifying confidence, vulnerability, stereotypes and gender.
