Redux isn't the only contemporary art space making moves. Next month Corrigan Gallery, which has lived at 62 Queen St. for 11.5 years, moves to 7 Broad St., which has housed a number of galleries over the years.

Corrigan Gallery owner and artist Lese Corrigan says the new space is much larger — the Queen Street spot is a mish-mash of add-ons built from the late 1800s to the 1990s — and also features a garden. While Corrigan isn't entirely sure what's going into 62 Queen, she knows there will be major renovations to the building.

Swing by Corrigan Gallery on Queen Street this Fri. May 5 from 5-8 p.m. for the opening of Paul Mardikian's Fragments, a show that "concerns the passage of time and erosion of materials." The show seems fitting as the to-be-renovated gallery's last one; as Mardikian says, "Corrosion, erosion, fusion and sedimentation all come together, expanding the two dimensional into the three dimensional and merging the worlds of art and science."
