The Department of Visual Arts at the University of Ottawa, in collaboration with the National Gallery of Canada (NGC) is proud to present Stan Douglas for the seventh annual Stonecroft Foundation Visiting Artist Lecture on Thursday, October 6th at 6:00 PM. The University of Ottawa is located on unceded territories of the Algonquin People, who are the traditional guardians of this land.  

This lecture series is made possible thanks to a significant gift from the Stonecroft Foundation for the Arts, in support of contemporary art discourse. The annual Stonecroft Foundation Visiting Artist Lecture Series allows the public to discover prominent Canadian artists’ practices. We invite you to join us on Thursday, October 6th at the NGC Auditorium for the artist talk by Stan Douglas. The event will also be made available online for live streaming via Zoom.
