Co-presented with OBORO and White Frame
OBORO and White Frame co-present Où sommes-nous, an exhibition by Judith Albert, Katrin Freisager, Dana Claxton, and Nik Forrest. These four established artists open and disrupt our knowledge of space and time, bringing into question the line between reality and illusion through poetry and resistance.
Où sommes-nous hints at the place we occupy within the exhibition space. These four artists provide a diversity of approaches to exploring fundamental questions concerning framing, narrative, still, and moving pictures. Their practices span performance, as figurative and abstract imagery tie the body to landscape. Brought together, their works articulate common preoccupations concerning perception and a desire to both disrupt and expand the popular imaginary by drawing from avant-garde, feminist, and post-colonial vernaculars and strategies.
This exhibition was made possible with the support ofthe Canada Council for the Arts and Pro Helvetia.
Art POP will present exclusive interviews with artists and curators from the exhibition broadcasted by the XX Files pirate radio every day at the Rialto!
