Stéphane Gilot. MULTIVERSITÉ / Métacampus
Artist: Stéphane Gilot
August 28, 2012 - October 6, 2012
Opening: September 6, 2012, 5:30 pm
Stéphane Gilot explores various forms of utopia and dystopia, architecture, social structures, cosmology and epistemology. His works are often site-specific and transform the space according to its architectural and ideological characteristics while probing the metaphorical realm of art and its audiences. The project exhibited at Galerie de l’UQAM combines installations, maquettes, drawings and filmed interviews with leading thinkers to prompt interdisciplinary reflection on the possible permutations of the university — utopian form par excellence and home to the emergence, circulation and development of thought and knowledge. A book on the MULTIVERSITÉ/Métacampus and Cité performative projects, co-published with Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, will be launched at the end of the exhibition.
