Meryl McMaster In Between Worlds
“In Between Worlds” presents the work of Indigenous female artists, who through their art, photography and speech, explore the true identity and culture of the First Nations’. Through her accessories, McMaster mimics the extension and the telescoping of our bodies and identities. “In Between Worlds” is a complex mix of characters rediscovering and finding their true selves and their very own culture. The exhibition will be available until December the 3rd 2017.
Minemosyne is an exhibition which explores the “unexpected encounters between the works on display in the new Michal and Renation Hornstein Pavilion for Peace”. This presentation portrays 14 different contemporary artists from Quebec and Canada. It demonstrates a beautiful marriage between contemporary art and the art from the past. This comparison between two different eras of art, demonstrates a “timeless aesthetic” of classic themes and shapes. This exhibition will be available until May the 20th 2018.
