Major Projects at the Galerie de l’UQAM: Winter-Spring 2017 Program

For the winter and spring of 2017, the Galerie de l’UQAM unveils a program made up of major exhibitions and many collaborations. The season will open with an exhibition by an exceptional Montrealer, Françoise Sullivan, an important figure of visual arts and contemporary dance in Canada. In parallel, the artist Jonathan Plante will present his recent research on lenticular supports.


This will be followed by a solo exhibition by the Scottish artist Graham Fagen, whose works focuses on the implications of slavery in identity construction and shared cultures. By way of an exhaustive program of parallel activities, this exhibition seeks to open a space for fertile exchange on the memory and impact of slavery and colonialism. At the same time, Galerie de l’UQAM will be one of the satellites of the Geneva Biennale of Moving Images that is to take place in several international sites this year.


In the spring, the intersections between media arts, engineering and sustainable development will be featured thanks to the Mexican artist Gilberto Esparza, while Charles-Antoine Blais Métivier will explore our relationship to technological interfaces, which are increasingly a part of our everyday life.


All this will be complemented by the exhibition Motion which will be travelling to the MacKenzie Art Gallery in Regina, the event Passage à découvert, an annual showcase of graduating students in the BA program in visual and media arts, as well as by the continuation of the virtual exhibition The Painting Project.
