On October 1, 2011, The Residue Group will transform

Beaver Hall Gallery into a relic of our industrial 
past for Scotiabank Nuit Blanche revelers to sample 
a taste of the art of Urban Exploration.

Urban exploration (often shortened as urbex or UE) 

is the examination of the normally unseen or off-
limits parts of urban areas or industrial facilities. Exploration

‘Residue’ is a group exhibition by the members of 

The Residue Group exploring the relationship between 
the “art” of urban exploration and its presentation 
for public consumption.

Experience the thrill of an urban adventure and 

explore the residue left behind the hoarding of 
closed factories, derelict homes and our cultural 
past. Slip on a pair of rubber gloves and discover 
the excitement of found artistic treasure(s) while
you navigate your way through debris, traces of 
light, music and industrial noise. Peer through holes 
in the walls, examine the discarded furniture, 
the installation will be a gallery exhibition 
of UE photography, we invite you to stay a moment and 
who once lived, worked or worshiped within them leave.
abandoned machines and what remains when the occupants 

At the end of your adventure in stark contrast to 
consider the spaces where urban exploration art 
is made.
