MANIF D’ART 8: The Quebec city biennial
- From February 18th To May 14th 2017: The Art of Joy, in tune with current international trends, is this edition’s theme. The title of a work by Goliarda Sapienza, The Art of Joy is a coming-of-age novel whose heroine makes happiness and self-discovery her sole mission in life. This highly charged and open-ended theme will allow the event to explore the notion of joy not in pure illustrations of the concept, but rather in the expression of its multiple facets. Through existing or new works, it will pursue and ponder this search for a specific relationship with the world, past and present, and everything underpinning it. What will result is a tension between joy and its opposite, between its radiant side and its reverse, darker side.

CARL TRAHAN: Because there is night

-From April 6th To September 24th 2017: Recipient of the Prix “en art actuel” of the MNBAQ 2016, awarded in collaboration with the RBC Foundation, artist Carl Trahan is pursuing in greater depth through writing and drawing a reflection on the striking impact of modernity, the weight of words, and the flaws of translation. The MNBAQ will organize the first solo exhibition of the artist in a museum.

TIME FLIES: Vanitas Art in the MNBAQ Collection

-April 6th To September 24th 2017: The exhibition focuses on the grounds for vanity in the works in the MNBAQ’s collection. It assembles works from different periods and various categories —the decorative arts, graphic design, drawing, printmaking, installations, painting, photography, sculpture and video — all of which make us reflect on the transient nature of our presence in the world. The works evoke the passage of time, unchanging cycles and disappearance.

From Ferron to BGL/ Contemporary Art In Quebec – Any time.

This exhibition presents more than 60 key works from 1960 to today by essential figures in the history of Québec art. In the wake of the redefinition of Quebec identity brought about by the Quiet Revolution, art in Québec went through unprecedented upheavals, whose range of repercussions this retrospective look will enable us to grasp. Work by well-known artists, major events and artistic movements will thus be put in perspective in a unique presentation employing astonishing associations. Complemented by historical information and contextual references, this innovative panorama of the history of contemporary art will reveal the mutual influences and shared sensibilities that have animated artists and the great currents of contemporary art.

Inuit Art / Brousseau Collection / Ilippunga– Any time.

This exceptional display provides a whole new experience of Inuit art, with a selection of more than 100 works from the Brousseau Inuit Art collection from the past sixty years by more than sixty artists from Nunavik, Québec and from Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. Conceived around the Inuit concept IQ (Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit in Inuktitut), the exhibition will illustrate the ancestral values, skills and know-how found in the culture of the Canadian far north, which artists have imbued in their work.
