Unveiling of the programming



This fall, Galerie de l’UQAM is showing the major exhibition Uprisings, but planning is already underway for winter and spring 2019. Focusing on a variety of topics, upcoming projects at Galerie de l’UQAM will explore classification systems, critique controls, and experiment with alternative methodologies for creating meaning.


The large hall of Galerie de l’UQAM will be showcasing collective exhibitions, enabling us to present multiple points of view on the issues addressed and to generate conversations between works and artists. The winter season will kick off on January 11 with L’attente. Curated by Fabrizio Gallanti, the project brings together international and Quebec artists reflecting on the management of time in contemporary societies and the current obsession with making every moment profitable. In March, Galerie de l’UQAM will present works from the Collection d’oeuvres d’art de l’UQAM in Salle des maquettes, an exhibition exploring the creative process. In May and June, Over My Black Body will be shown as part of the University’s 50th anniversary celebrations; this evolving project, curated by Eunice Bélidor and Anaïs Castro, challenges the ways in which black bodies are controlled and depicted today.


The season will also feature individual exhibitions on the work of Leila Zelli, Nans Bortuzzo and Maude Arès, showing the results of their research for the Master's in Visual and Media Arts. While Zelli reflects on the role of images in constructing our view of the other, Bortuzzo gives voice to personal information agglomerated on digital platforms, and Ares explores a precarious, fragile materiality in an installation activated by a series of performances. In April, Passage à découvert will be the annual presentation of work by graduating students in the UQAM Bachelor of Visual and Media Arts.


Finally, Galerie de l’UQAM’s most recent virtual project, 150 Years / 150 Works: Canadian Art as Historical Act is ongoing, while The Painting Project: A Snapshot of Painting in Canada, will end its five-year online display in November 2018.
