Projet Pangée

Free !

From February 27 to April 4, 2020.

Projet Pangée is thrilled to present “Swan Song,” an exhibition uniting the works of Shary Boyle(Toronto), Delphine Hennelly (Brooklyn), Annelie McKenzie (Los Angeles) and Claire Milbrath(Montreal).

Examining concepts of exuberance, theatricality, the frivolousness of Baroque and its overstated cousin, Rococo, this exhibition parallels the present through sustained illusions of abundance, heightened by our knowledge of inevitable decline.

Through motifs of excess and gilded fantasy, “Swan Songs” peaks to both historic and current destructive indulgences, the overripe becomes a metaphorfor escape and avoidance, highlighting the dichotomic state of our times.

Opening on Thursday, February 27, 2020, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
