SAW GALLERY presents Michael DeForge: All Dogs Are Dogs, an expansive presentation of MICHAEL DEFORGE’s work that marks the artist’s first major survey exhibition. Originally from Ottawa, DeForge has produced an idiosyncratic body of work that has established him as a generation-defining voice in alternative comics.

Moving across disciplines, All Dogs Are Dogs brings to life a hallucinatory world of degenerate creatures caught in existential quagmires. The exhibition comprises large-scale drawings and sculptures, prints, graphic novels, a limited-edition chapbook, and a comic-strip mural commission on SAW’s façade.

Presented in partnership with OTTAWA EXPLOSION WEEKEND and BRUISED TONGUE RECORDS, the exhibition’s opening party, Next Wave:  Ottawa Music Spotlight, will feature some of Ottawa’s most exciting new bands and DJs.
