The Ottawa City Project

September 4, 2008

By Mike Landry

Ottawa artist Greg Hill's "Cereal Box Canoe."

Moving from Montreal to Ottawa seven years ago, Ottawa Gallery curator Emily Falvey was a bit worried Ottawa would be boring. It’s something she says a lot of people assume about the city.

“A lot of people assume that about the city, and then it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy,” says Falvey. “It’s a city that’s a victim of its own stereotypes”

Inspired by local poet rob mclennan‘s 2007 book The Ottawa City Project and her own experience, Falvey is trying to alter popular misconceptions about Ottawa in a new exhibition.
