-October 10th 2019 to January 5th 2020 :COZIC, a major figure of Québec contemporary art, is a two-headed, four-handed artistic entity born of the imaginations of Monic Brassard and Yvon Cozic. Part of the generation of counter-culture artists that emerged during the Quiet Revolution, COZIC has played a major role in the erosion of frontiers between visual arts disciplines in Québec: by breaking free from traditional means of expression like painting and sculpture, COZIC has challenged the very nature of the artwork.
Numa Amun – Recipient of the third MNBAQ Contemporary Art Award. Gérard Morisset Pavilion
-June 20th 2019 to February 16th 2020 :
The Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, in collaboration with RBC, its financial partner, is proud to present the exhibition of artist Numa Amun, recipient of the third MNBAQ Contemporary Art Award.
Discover work that displays a magnetic precision combining a skillful blend of figurative abstractions and optical illusions. While it appears to result from digital manipulations, Numa Amun’s painting owes nothing to digital technology. The rendering of his work stems from extraordinary meticulousness and creates contemplative meditations and questioning by viewers subjugated by so much precision.
His work focuses on themes such as the life cycle, love and solitude. Numa Amun’s artistic research is spiritual in that it focuses on the separate spirit of the palpable experience of the physical body or the recognition of a soul emanating from the beyond.
