The exhibition, Interference, is part of an exchange project between the Enriched Bread Artists of Ottawa (EBA) and Quartair Contemporary Art Initiatives. Quartair’s exhibition, Dutch Settlement, took place at the EBA in Ottawa, May 31 – June 10, 2013.

Fifteen EBA artists highlight different aspects of interference in their works, from the interruption of electronic signals to the obstacles life and politics throw in the way of personal plans and aspirations. Primarily, however, the concept of interference is re-enacted in this exhibition, through the creation of a chain of events that begins with a spatial intrusion into the Quartair gallery that will greatly impede the installation of the art.

GUEST AT QUARTAIR
29 June till 19 July: The Colombian Embassy presents:
COLECCIONISMO Y OTRAS INTERPRETACIONES

Melissa Cruz Garcia & Laura Pardo
The show emerges from the connections between the artists' works, as well from their particular interests. Both use the recollection of common household products that usually end discarded by society. This has been employed by the artists as a tool to re-think, transform and reconfigure the objects themselves and also their cultural meaning.
On the occasion of her exhibition in Quartair, Laura will be swapping vegetable and tropical fruit plants that she germinated in her studio for material or immaterial goods. Whoever wants to take home a little plant may do so by getting involved in this non-monetary exchange!
During the exhibition in Quartair, Melissa will be showing drawings, installations and self-made machines. As also, will be giving a one day long workshop on the 12th of July (from 13.00 till 17.00) on animation with drawings, where the participants are also invited to reflect and think in terms of obsolete technology.

As part of the EXCHANGE PROJECT between the ENRICHED BREAD ARTISTS and QUARTAIR

31 May - 10 June
'Dutch Settlement' in Ottawa, Canada.

Artists participating in Dutch Settlement are: Marlies Adriaanse, Harold de Bree, Paul Donker Duyvis,Geeske Harting, Rens Krikhaar, Erik-Jan Ligtvoet, Ingrid Mol, Pepijn van den Nieuwendijk, Jessy Theo Rahman, Pietertje van Splunter, Thom Vink.

From an empty building with squatters to an officially recognized non-profit cultural breeding ground, Quartair was founded in 1992 by a group of young artists after graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague. Quartair is located at The Hague Bread Factory, built in 1902, on the Toussaintkade. Serendipitously, in 1992, when recent art graduates from Ottawa University were looking for studio spaces, they set up shop in the abandoned Standard Bread Factory in Ottawa. They became the Enriched Bread Artists (EBA).
Thanks to Ottawa curator and artist Petra Halkes, who was born in The Hague, the “twins” will be re-united during Doors Open Ottawa in June 2013. EBA will host a special exhibition, Dutch Settlement, organized by Quartair artists, some of whom will be present. The participants are inspired by various meanings of the word ‘settlement’, from the oldest villages in the Low Countries to the founding of communities of colonists and labour immigrants in ‘the New World’. During the opening, Quartair artists will evoke the unique ‘do it yourself’ atmosphere that compelled them to squat in an empty bread factory in the Dutch governmental city over twenty years ago.
