This fall at the Galerie de l’UQAM

Communiqué de presse

June 29, 2010 – Here is what you can look forward to this fall at the Galerie de l'UQAM.

David Spriggsthumb_David_Spriggs_Haute
Curator: Marie-Eve Beaupré
September 3 to October 9, 2010
Vernissage: Thursday, September 9 at 5:30 p.m.

A monumental installation by U.K.-born, Montreal-based David Spriggs will open the fall program. Produced during a summer-long residency using the Galerie space as a research laboratory, the project will be kept under wraps until the vernissage. The outcome will allow viewers to take stock of a practice that verges at once on drawing, painting, sculpture and assemblage.

September 3 to October 9, 2010
Vernissage: Thursday, September 9 at 5:30 p.m.

Anne Parisien's video of a staged event, made in collaboration with a family member, reinterprets and draws out the fragment of a childhood memory. In a looped projection where time is slowed, this work embodies the desire for return to a time long past.

Curators: Véronique Leblanc and Louise Déry
October 22 to November 20, 2010
Vernissage: Thursday, October 21 at 5:30 p.m.

A solo show by the internationally renowned Polish artist Artur Żmijewski will open in October. Poised between media art and documentary, his installations deploy an aesthetic of shock. These controversial and highly political works address the notion of democracy and explore the issue of violence to question the ways we live together. Screenings, a meet-the-artist session and a roundtable discussion will round out the event.
