Exhibition On View: Friday January 14 – Sunday February 20, 2022
Where: SPAO Centre, 77 Pamilla Street, Ottawa
We invite you to join either in-person or online for SPAO’s new exhibition Innominate Nature. The exhibition features the experimental work by Ontario-based artists Stéphane Alexis, Julia Campisi, Alexander Finlay & Maria-Hélèna Pacelli.
After two years of incubation, who are we now? Have the pressures of recent events cracked the fragile molds of our identity to such an extent that we must now reconcile our new found self? Can new light shine on previously unexplored places, exposing a new sense of our experience in the world?
Innominate Nature is an exhibition of artists who reject a ‘return to normal’ in favor of a deeply personal emergence into the unknown. It is an avant-garde exhibition that pushes experimental techniques, new conceptual boundaries and site-specific photo installation. Visitors can expect to confront their own identities, and the ways in which they choose to re-emerge into the world after a period of introspection.

I AM ALIVE – What is Art Place?
ART FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
Is it possible that what we feel and experience through art changes who we are becoming? Find out with special guest Maria-Hélèna Pacelli, a multidisciplinary artist and activist who holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Master’s in Women’s Studies and who’s research examines the intersections of art and social change. She will also be sharing with us a few creative songs while playing live her mandolin to socially inspire change. Listen HERE.
LISTENING TO YOUR BODY’S GUIDANCE SYSTEM
Roots & Rhythms started out in 1997 as a roots music program (older blues, country, r&b and rock(abilly), with some contemporary jazz and world music thrown in as well. Most programs were devoted to a specific artist, label, city or genre. Since then, the core concept has remained the same, but has been broadened to include some pop and more mix-type programs blending eclectic choices across genre and time periods. Throughout, the emphasis has been on music that swings, jumps, or rocks.
