VOX is working on a cross-Canada tour of its new children exhibition.
Austrian artist VALIE EXPORT is considered one of the most important figures in the fields of Conceptual Art, performance and film. Active since the 1960s, she continues to have an ongoing influence with her seminal feminist and media-critical works. This monographic exhibition is part of a research program initiated by VOX in 2005, revisiting major artistic practices, here with a significant body of work that has never been presented in Montreal.
Continuing its research into the practice, history and future of exhibitions and their documentation, VOX presents the fifth in its series of documentary exhibitions, dedicated this time to the event 03 23 03 – First International Encounter on Contemporary Art in Montreal, 1977. Organized by France Morin, Chantal Pontbriand and Normand Thériault and presented in a disused post office, this major event included an exhibition, a series of performances, and debates.
VOX invites you to a discussion around the issues raised by the documentary reactivation of 03 23 03 (1977). This roundtable moderated by Marie J. Jean will bring together historian and philosopher of art Thierry de Duve with two of the original exhibition’s organizers, Chantal Pontbriand and Normand Thériault. Admission is free, but seats are limited!
Watch our interview with Jonathan Monk about Exhibit Model Three, presented last year. Following the Exhibit Model One and Two publications, a special “newspaper” about our site-specific installation—featuring an essay by Marie J. Jean—is now available at VOX!
This book examines the particular relationship that Tousignant established between his art practice and that of the exhibition. It seeks to contextualize significant works at the time of their public viewing, while providing an in-depth study of the history of exhibitions in Canada.
This publication documents every step in the production of this undertaking—a process that took three years—and includes the artist’s correspondence, the geodesic calculations, and images of the various participating sites.
Our new book, with essays by Marie J. Jean, Robert Graham and Zoë Tousignant, contextualizes this major project in the artist’s practice, notably his Land Art projects, in a journey from local to global.
