Untitled Art Space turns one! [Event]

Over the past 12 months, Untitled Art Space has been testing the limits of the art gallery experience with everything from photography and audio/visual performances, to an installation of a partial skateboard park coming through the doors of the tiny space. Through this year-long exploration, the gallery has found that its identity lays ultimately in collaboration and the experimentation of interactive art and interdisciplinary projects.

Fresh Paint Gallery | Alpha-Bête: Can't We All Just Get Ensemble?

It may be cliché, but art is a universal language. It speaks to everyone, transcending the boundaries of culture and tongue, and appeals directly to the heart and mind of the individual. It unites people. Perhaps this is why Montreal stands out as a city of artists. In the largest bilingual city in North America, the pervasive presence of art, from street to gallery, seems particularly relevant, as it promotes expression, understanding and unity in a place where things sometimes get lost in translation. 


This is one of the best things we’ve seen in a while, and takes street art to another dimension. Created by artist (and designer) INSA, it’s a reflection of how the Internet has made street art so much more accessible. Yes, there is plenty of impressive street art in cities around the world, but a lot of them we wouldn’t usually get to see in person, and heck, some of it isn’t that unusual. This is where GIF-iti comes in. Not only does it bring worldwide art to your computer screen, seeing it that way actually makes it better.
