Lancement de la publication Fin de siècle

Curator : François Dion

Authors : François Dion, Luis Jacob, Sally McKay

Fin de siècle comprises four thematic exhibitions addressing issues such as self-anxiety, language and order, technology and the sense of community, that reflect a specific time. Produced for Optica’s multidisciplinary room, the exhibitions gathered the recent work of ten artists from Eastern Canada. The series questioned the traditional work of the curator, exhibition practices and the interpretation of artworks, focusing on exchange and collaboration between participants in a project, as well as the different relationships generated by a critical approach of artistic conventions. The publication reflects the spirit of the project in presenting four visual sections linked to the exhibitions themselves in parallel with three complementary texts : an essay, a dialogue and a work of fiction.
