THE ZERYNTHIA PROJECT

Information on the activity

March 11, 2021 to April 17, 2021

March 12, 2021 - April 17, 2021
Opening: March 11, 2021, 5:30 pm

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.

Curator: Louise Déry, in collaboration with Mario Pieroni, Dora Stieflmeyer and Barbara Nardacchione (Rome)
Several artists from Québec, Canada and Italy
