A personal encounter with the artists and artistic movements that have defined the development of abstraction since the 1940s in Québec and across Canada: that’s what is in store for visitors to the exhibition A Matter of Abstraction, on view at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal starting April 12, 2012. Following a chronological and thematic approach, the exhibition showcases key works from the museum’s Permanent Collection, which today form a priceless public heritage. The presentation of A Matter of Abstraction was made possible by a substantial grant from Québec’s Ministère de la Culture, des Communications et de la Condition féminine under its program of support for permanent exhibitions.
This exhibition consists of two recent projects by Sophie Calle, one of today’s leading French artists. These works, The Last Image, 2010, a series of photographs accompanied by texts, and Voir la mer, 2011, a series of digital films, take an incisive, poetic look at the particular reality of the mental images of blind people and at the discovery of beauty and the sublime.
Celebrated British artist Simon Starling presents some fifteen pieces in this exhibition—sculptures, photographs, installations and films—produced since 2002. This significant body of works points up the main concerns explored by Starling: the importance of research and metamorphosis as a creative process, an interest in the history of art and a strong presence of material substance.
Simon Starling: Metamorphology is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
This major exhibition, the first collaborative undertaking between the Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris and the MACM, will offer a critical overview of the work of internationally renowned Québec artist David Altmejd.
