Exhibition

Pierre Dorion

15 March – 12 May, 2013

Organized and circulated by the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal with the support of the Museums Assistance Program at Canadian Heritage

Opening Reception Thursday 14 March at 8 pm

To say that the paintings of Montreal based artist Pierre Dorion are Minimalist works only tells one side of the story; to say that they are objective Realist paintings also tells just one side.  But they are both; they also are imbued with sentiments of loss, memory, presence, and an ambiguous unreality that actually is based on the artist’s own photographs.

Nouvelle Vague Landmarks: The French New Wave and the reach for new cinematic expression

23 January – 8 May, 2013

The French New Wave changed the cinema completely, from how we make movies to how we watch them. Initiated by film critics from the magazine Cahiers du Cinéma, the Nouvelle Vague led to films shot on the cheap about contemporary subjects on one hand, while playfully re-imagining genres such as Science Fiction and musicals on the other.
