Dave Dyment: On This Day

1 January – 10 January 2019

In conjunction with his exhibition at the Owens, Dyment will present a special online project titled On This Day as a “takeover” of the Owens’ Instagram account (@owensartgallery).

On This Day consists of stills culled from cinema and television that feature images of dates as found in calendars, correspondence, newspapers, and other documents. Excerpted from an ongoing archive, the work aims to piece together a calendar year made up of fragmented time from fictional pasts and futures.

This project inaugurates a new initiative that approaches social media channels and online spaces as venues for the presentation of new work.

On This Day will be presented as a series of daily posts from 1-10 January 2019.

Search Engine Serendipity

12 October 2018 – 1 October 2019

Curated by Rachel Thornton

Search Engine Serendipity was a collaborative artist project by Ella Tetrault and Kristie MacDonald. It explores the process of locating, selecting, and interpreting images online, and the tangential paths we navigate to find them. Taking the form of an internet travelogue, the website is a hyperlinked collage of found and created images, video clips, search engine results and live-streams, juxtaposed through intuitive logic and thematic associations.

Garry Neill Kennedy: FBI (ACT)

7 November 2008 – 9 December 2009

Garry Neill Kennedy was commissioned by the Owens Art Gallery to create a new work specifically for the launch of the Digital Owens, our new on-line programming venue. Kennedy's work links the Owens Art Gallery website to the website of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Art Crime Team (ACT) where visitors will find a list of the FBI Top Ten Art Crimes or a list of Recent Art Thefts. Through this work, visitors to the Owens website have the opportunity to take part in the recovery of stolen art anywhere in the world from the theft of the Gertrude Venderbilt Whitney Murals (Panels 3A and 3B) to the Painful Virgin by Dolorosa.
