NETWORK INSTALLATIONS
Marie-Josée Laframboise

13 August to 24 October 2010
Curated by Eve-Lyne Beaudry
Curator of Contemporary Art, Musée d’art de Joliette

American mathematician and philosopher Alfred Korzybski states, “The map is not the territory.” This pronouncement illuminates the idea that a concept is derived from something but is not the thing itself. Artist Marie-Josée Laframboise departs from traditional notions of cartography by immersing herself in the spaces that she eventually appropriates. In so doing, she constructs original environments out of preexisting spaces. The constructed networks and pathways that Laframboise generates take shape through conceptual concerns as well as the material and physical conditions of the location.
— Andrea Fatona, Curator of Contemporary Art

Friday 1 October at 12:30 pm with artist Marie-Josée Laframboise (in French)

AVAAZ
Dipna Horra

13 August to 24 October 2010
Curated by Andrea Fatona

Avaaz is the Punjabi word for voice.

Dipna Horra’s sound installation Avaaz is an autobiographical story that revolves around the artist’s great-grandfather’s journey from the Punjab to Kenya and his subsequent founding of the newspaper called The Colonial Times. Horra enlivens everyday domestic objects with sounds and voices appropriated from her childhood and adult life. A teapot, cups, a table, a radiator, and a window frame narrate a story of movement, migration and transculturation.
— Andrea Fatona, Curator of Contemporary Art

At Land’s End
Firestone Collection of Canadian Art

7 August to 17 October 2010
Curated by Anik Glaude

Artists:
James M.Barnsley, Paul Beaulieu, Alan Collier, Bruce Garner,
Robert Harris, Edwin Holgate, A.Y. Jackson, Arthur Lismer,
Henri Masson, Doris McCarthy, Donald McKay, Louis Muhlstock,
George Pepper, Claude Picher, Joe Plaskett, Jack Shadbolt, Philip Surrey

Historically, landscape painters have employed oceanic imagery to create idyllic scenery and to represent both the powerful and destructive nature of the sea. At Land’s End highlights a selection of artworks from the Firestone Collection of Canadian Art that reflects the continuous convergence of land and sea that shapes this country’s utmost border. From the depiction of maritime fishing villages, to floating glaciers and rocky shorelines, the works chosen for this exhibition vary both in style and subject matter. They range from representations of specific geographical locations, to investigations of the evolving relationship between the human and natural worlds.
— Anik Glaude, Interim Curator, Firestone Collection of Canadian Art
