Life = Absurd

A group exhibition celebrating the pointless beauty of human existence.



Curated with a deep appreciation for the complexities of the human condition, Life = Absurd brings together a remarkable collection of over 60 artworks by some of Canada’s most exciting artists. Within the confines of a 200-square-foot space, each piece on display serves as a thoughtful and often humorous commentary on the absurdity of being.

Within THIS Gallery’s intimate environment, we encounter scenes that challenge societal norms, reflect on mundane absurdities, and remind us to find joy in the unexpected. This is not just art; it’s a mirror held up to our own peculiar journey through a world that sometimes appears to defy all sense.


The heart of this exhibition lies not only in the individual artworks but also in the astonishing feat of curating more than 60 pieces within the intimate expanse of a 200-square-foot area. This unique presentation challenges the boundaries of space and perception, amplifying the impact of each artwork and inviting visitors to immerse themselves in a kaleidoscope of perspectives on the absurd.

Beyond the art, Life = Absurd is an experience.

The exhibition is infused with a vibrant and party-like atmosphere, fostering connections among art enthusiasts, creators, and those who revel in the joyful conundrums of life. It’s an occasion to celebrate art, contemplate the absurd, and embrace the camaraderie that comes with shared laughter and insight.
