For the OAG's opening weekend, artist, educator and activist Cara Tierney performed in collaboration with Fin Xuan, artist, activist and BFA student, a work on gender interrogation implicit in symbols and systems within institutions. Tierney was instrumental in the OAG's new policy on gender-neutral facilities, while Xuan petitioned and was successful in making these changes to the University of Ottawa Visual Arts Department.
