Galerie de l’UQAM x MOMENTA: Of the Land

August 25, 2021

Galerie de l’UQAM is pleased to host as of September 8 Of the land, an exhibition presented in collaboration with MOMENTA Biennale de l’image as part of its 17th edition, entitled Sensing Nature. This edition is rooted in two complementary notions: nature that senses and humans sensing nature. In this biennale, we are making room for “other” perspectives so that we may reach more sensitive forms of cohabitation.

The artists in Of the Land, more specifically, are concerned with our destructive relationships with surroundings seen as a supposedly inexhaustible “other” and the way that colonial seizing of territory has disrupted ancestral relations with the land. In this exhibition, ecology is considered beyond the natural, as the artists explore gendered and racialized stereotypes compounded with the commodification of nature.

Curating: Stefanie Hessler in collaboration with Camille Georgeson-Usher, Maude Johnson, and Himali Singh Soin
Artists: Carolina Caycedo, Taloi Havini, Ts̱ēmā Igharas and Erin Siddall, Kama La Mackerel, Miriam Simun, Eve Tagny

Dates: September 8 – October 24, 2021
