Art: The Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario presents its first exhibition in its new home at Place des Arts. In Pi, in progress, artist Lise Beaudry shares the process behind the creation of Pi (2020-22), a permanent installation that stands 3.14 metres tall. Located in the foyer of Place des Arts, at the corner of Elgin and Larch streets, Pi resembles a pillar.  In the GNO gallery, the video installation Shine Bright/Behind the scenes (2021-22) compiles the numerous things the artist found in the archives of the seven founding organizations of Place des Arts. Echoing the 15,000 stacked photos and the transcendent value that is pi, the video reveals the creative impulse that underlies an artistic community in the making. Until May 30.
