    Over the years, Carl Trahan’s visual works, a mix of drawing, writing and other media, have served to communicate his particular interest in modernity, exploring its threads of connectivity to the Industrial Revolution, European fascism and the First World War. This reflection holds strong in his latest project, Das Gleitende – III, a multimedia approach that continues to examine modernity, religion and the deconstruction of the spiritual order established and celebrated by futurism.

    Carl Trahan is the 2016 recipient of the prestigious Prix en art actuel from the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, one of the most esteemed art awards in Québec. Following his Because There is Night exhibition at the MNBAQ, Trahan presents his continuing insights and reflections on the complexities of language, politics and aesthetics.

    Opening on Febuary 17, 2019 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

    Tuesday to Sunday from 12 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    Exhibition : Bonnie Baxton at Musée d'art contemporain des Laurentides
    November 22, 2018 to January 25, 2019

    Eighteen years after the exhibition Rewind (2005), the MAC LAU and artist Bonnie Baxter embarked on a discussion for a new exhibit project. Without a doubt one of the most influential artists in the Laurentians, Bonnie Baxter will be unveiling her latest creation, a polymorphic exhibition with narratives that slip between biography, fabrication and auto-fiction, at the MAC LAU.

    Originally hailing from the United States and now a proud resident of Val-David, Bonnie Baxter is a celebrated artist with long-standing connections in her milieu. She’s one of the founding members of the Atelier du Scarabée, where she was also director, and her talents in printmaking and etching have led to her collaboration with artists such as Jean-Paul Riopelle (1985-1993), whose major works she printed. A professor at Concordia University, her extensive body of work has garnered international attention and acclaim on stages around the world, including Paris, New York, Toronto and Montréal. A believer in creating layers of content to signify layers of meaning, the printmaker works with both traditional and new media techniques.

    Opening on November 25, 2018 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. 

    Tuesday to Sunday from 12 a.m. to 5 p.m.
