    Luanne Martineau Exhibit
    November 24, 2019 to January 26, 2020

    Luanne Martineau is an Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing at Concordia University, whose research practice explores the social stratification of artistic production and the “naturalized” fissures between art genres, engaging a long tradition of satire and critique within contemporary art. Interconnecting processes of craft with the suppressed narratives of the artisan within minimalist and post-minimalist “deskilled” materiality, Martineau’s research pursues the conflation of method, style and ideology within artistic manufacture.

    Tuesday to Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

    Exhibit poetic study of fluid mechanics by François Lacasse
    November 24, 2019 to January 26, 2020

    For the past five years, François Lacasse has been methodically developing new procedures for the realization of his works. The paint flow now covers the entire surface of the painting rather than favouring the local stain or the shape drawn and produced by a number of gestures. The artist now explores the different consistencies of acrylic paint and the possible reactions that their encounters on the surface produce under specific conditions. He invents worlds where the procedures fade a little, where they pass to the background to leave more room for the evocative power of the image.

    Tuesday to Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

  • Event
    Exhibit by Catherine Bolduc at Vestibule du MAC LAU
    December 1, 2019 to May 1, 2020

    Inauguration of the MAC LAU Vestibule 

    New exhibition space located at Théâtre Gilles-Vigneault.

    Inaugural exhibition : Catherine Bolduc : Parallel Life (extract)

    In this series of works on paper, the artist hijacks photographs and illustrations from commercial image banks usually intended for graphic and advertising designers. Through interventions with pencils, watercolor and fluorescent acrylic paint on the inkjet printed surface, bursts of liquid and streaks of color evoking waterfalls, tornadoes or erupting volcanoes invade the space represented. Thus, contaminated by the pictorial gesture, these smooth images as watered down versions of contemporary life reveal a parallel psychic life that responds more to an emotional order, or disorder.

    Milutin Gubash Exhibit
    February 9, 2020 to April 5, 2020

    The presentation of Milutin Gubash's works is part of the series Rencontre. The project aims to support the work of the artist for a period of two years during multiple presentations; this way the public can have a special relation and conversation with the artist.

    This year, Milutin Gubash presents a sculptural installation, like a theater or movie decor, including 40 to 50 disembodied arms in the shape of clouds touching obsolete objects, like old cameras, that he used to repare with his late father.

    Tuesdays to Sundays, from noon to 5 p.m.
