Location: Outer Place
Description: Blink Gallery will become “Header House” the historical site. Blending fact and fiction, the gallery will house, ‘archival photographs’, ‘artifacts’ and panels relaying accounts of past prime ministers, suffragettes on the run and derelict artists.
Blink Gallery is a non-profit collective supporting professional contemporary artists from the Ottawa region. Located across from the National Gallery, it occupies “Header House,” which was originally a containment space for the explosives used in the cannons on Parliament Hill.
The gallery now houses the energies of a group of artists who prefer to use the site as a laboratory for creative approaches and interventions into multiple art “spaces” both inside and outside of the gallery. BLINK is a small space for generating big ideas. The National Capital Commission generously helps to accommodate our community driven aspirations.
