Hamilton Public Library supports local artists, artisans and organizations by providing free exhibition space.

Combining a suspended paper feature with non-narrative experimental video, Between the Lines is a new work by Vanessa Crosbie Ramsay on exhibition from March 1-31, 2019, coinciding with International Women’s Day on March 8th.

Vanessa was the 2018 recipient of the City of Hamilton Arts Award in Media Arts.

Between the Lines refers to finding the 'real' or hidden meaning in something, though this meaning may not be made explicit by whoever created it. Reading between the lines is the act of looking deeper to gain greater understanding.

This installation considers how words make us feel emotions, alludes to how one thing can represent another, and reflects our ability to make inferences, interpret nuance, and ascribe significance.

This project was made possible through the Factory Media Centre’s &NOW 2019 Production Residency & Scholarship, and an Exhibition Assistance grant from the Ontario Arts Council.

About the library

The first Hamilton Public Library building opened on September 16, 1890 by the Earl and Countess of Aberdeen on the north side of Main Street West. In 1913, a new main library opened. This building was replaced in 1980 by Central Library, at the current location on York Boulevard.

In 2010, Central Library re-opened after approximately 18 months of renovations. Central Library opened with a newly revitalized first floor, which includes a Community Living Room that takes advantage of natural light. The Ontario Library Association honoured Central in 2012 with an Architectural and Design Transformation award.
