October 23, 2020 - Novembre 21, 2020
Virtual Opening : Thursday, October 22, 2020, 5 p.m.
Galerie de l'UQAM presents Somewhere, Otherwise, the second act of QUADrature.
Curated by Ariane De Blois, the virtual exhibition poetically attempt to depict the world differently. Through personal proposals and openly situated points of view, the artists faye mullen, Mona Sharma, Anna Binta Diallo and Leila Zelli cross-explore the entanglement of temporalities and histories, and the unequal sharing of space, territory and the imaginary.
While the Internet continues to perpetuate power biases and serves as a breeding ground for extremist ideas, voices, views and stories that are too often eclipsed still manage to make their way onto the screen. By using images circulating on the Web as raw material, remixing them and staging them respectively in their works, the four artists bring out unique perspectives, countering the usual visual regime. So that from the surface of the screen to real life, there is a transfer of new affects.
Join curator Ariane De Blois, the artists and the Galerie de l'UQAM team to celebrate our online exhibition Somewhere, Otherwise, and to know more about the QUADrature initiative.
