... MOVE OR BE MOVED BY SOME THING RATHER THAN ONESELF.
GUILLAUME ADJUTOR PROVOST, ADAM BASANTA, ADRIENNE CROSSMAN, NADÈGE GREBMEIER FORGET
Curated by FLORENCE-AGATHE DUBÉ-MOREAU and MAUDE JOHNSON

Critical Distance is pleased to present ... move or be moved by some thing rather than oneself., an exhibition that considers curating and choreography as materials and subjects. The title, taken from a quote by choreographer Yvonne Rainer, echoes the curators' desire to question the potentialities of artworks as well as presentation contexts from the position of transdisciplinary instability.

More information available on our website.

ABOUT the ARTISTS

Guillaume Adjutor Provost is a Montréal-based artist. His practice is situated at the borders of visual arts, curating, and literature through hybrid works. He holds a Ph.D. in Arts Studies and Practices from UQAM and is the 2016-18 recipient of the Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Art. His solo exhibitions have been presented in various venues, such as Centre CLARK (Montréal, 2016), Diagonale (Montréal, 2017), and Bikini (Lyon, 2018).

Adam Basanta is a Montréal-based artist, composer, and performer of experimental music. His sculptures and installations reveal the conceptual and sensory dimensions of sound in the exhibition space by modifying the usual relationship of the visitors to it. His recent projects have been presented in Europe, United States, and Canada. He is long-listed for the 2018 Sobey Art Award.

Adrienne Crossman is based in Windsor. Their approach as an artist and curator involves the exploration of non-normative and non-binary representation while challenging the boundaries between physical and virtual exhibition environments. Crossman examines the queer potentialities present in digital media and popular culture with an interest in locating queer sensibilities in the everyday. Their recent projects have been shown in Toronto, Windsor, Carlisle (UK), and Montréal, as well as in The Wrong New Digital Art Biennale.

Nadège Grebmeier Forget is a Montréal-based artist. She employs choreographic and curatorial strategies to complicate access to her performing body in live, video, or installation works. Recent exhibitions and performances have been presented in various venues, such as VU PHOTO (Québec, 2016), She Works Flexible—Flex Space (Houston, 2016), and OPTICA (Montréal, 2017).

ABOUT the CURATORS

Florence-Agathe Dubé-Moreau is a Montréal-based writer and curator. MA candidate in Art History at UQAM, her research questions the effects of exhibition reenactment in contemporary art. She was the Assistant Curator for the Canadian Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015), co-editor of the book Questionner l'avenir. Réflexions sur la réactualisation de la Biennale de Montréal (2015), and curator of the exhibition do it Montréal at Galerie de l'UQAM (2016).

Maude Johnson is a Montréal-based writer and curator. She holds a MA in Art History from Concordia University. She is interested in the relationship between bodies, times, and spaces. Her research explores performative and curatorial practices, while probing methodologies, mechanisms, and languages within interdisciplinary practices. Her recent projects have been presented in the SIGHTINGS space of the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery (Montréal, 2016) and at Artexte (Montréal, 2018).
