Located for the past 22 years at the same address, the GNO is moving prior to its official relocation at Place des Arts, like a teenage rebellion preceding a serious step. The GNO’s relocalisation is also a precious occasion to focus our energies on a rich programming that puts creativity as a priority while attracting new publics. As it is not the first time in the gallery’s history that we have to move on short notice, we are welcoming this change as an opportunity to promote actual arts in unusual ways, such as outside-the-walls exhibitions.
The relocation is planned on July 1st, following the exhibition Lips of one thousand nine hundred ninety six teachers, by Patrick Cruz, shown from May 31 to June 28. The artist took advantage of the move to incorporate the gallery’s archives and other objects found in the basement into his multimedia installation that presents Sudbury in a pseudo-documentary.
