Performing Lives

In the exhibition Performing Lives, curator Zoë Chan looks at video in which artists mix codes, drawing both from the informational nature of the documentary medium and the world of televised and cinematic spectacle. Focusing on various cultural groups—a Roma community in Paris, residential school survivors, Guatemalan migrant workers, Twin Peaks fans, and young women of Asian-Canadian background—these narrative works reflect on the representation of its subjects in ways that go beyond the conventional display of bodies typically associated with the documentary genre.

Outre-vie / Afterlife

Outre-vie / Afterlife brings together pictorial artists who work separately together. Their point of departure is the “after-life” of the photographic image, considered as a material, as memory, as a trace, or as story. The group’s practices are hugely diverse, including observations of daily life, constructed fictions, storytelling, recordings, photography, video, writing, drawing, sound, and installations. Artists of Afterlife meet regularly, exchanging views around a dinner table or during working residencies outside Montreal. Often interested in the same subjects, they broach them from separate paths. Their group projects are infused with an intimate fellowship that gives rise to a stream of repetitions, variations, borrowings, and citations, echoing the fluidity of conversation and conjuring art-making as a simple, everyday gesture.
