The Zerynthia Project unsettles the status of physical objects by exploring the interplay of archive, artefact, and artwork. Using material collected by the Associazione per l’Arte Contemporanea Zerynthia (Rome), instigated by Mario Pieroni and Dora Stieflmeyer, the exhibition will open a dialogue between items from the Zerynthia collection (visual arts, sound, poetry and literature) and Montréal and Canada’s contemporary artistic landscape. The exhibition will likewise provide a platform for a new large-scale archival publication culling four decades of work by international artists such as Donatella Landi, John Cage, and Dennis Oppenheim, to name a few.
