Information on the activity

February 6, 2020 to March 21, 2020

From February 7 to March 21, 2020.

Galerie de l’UQAM will be closely observing the impact of human activity on our environment with “These Rooms of Earth and Stones,” an exhibition that brings together the work of artists Michel Boulanger (QC) and Katja Davar (DE). Organized by Simone Scholten (DE), the project furthermore serves as a collaborative and cultural exchange between a curator and an artist from Germany and an artist from Québec.

“These Rooms of Earth and Stones” focuses on the tracks left by human processing of the Earth. In the course of geological history, the landscape has changed greatly due to climatic shifts and its horizontal and vertical geological appearance has altered accordingly. Over the last 200 years, in particular through the industrialization of entire areas and the intensive mining of natural resources like gas, metal ores, oil, water or minerals this process has been accelerated.

Opening on February 6, 2020, at 5:30 p.m.

On February 29, 2020, from 8:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m., make the most of “Nuit blanche à Montréal” by visiting the exhibition. Mediators will be in the gallery space to present the works on display and to accompany visitors in their thoughts.
