The Grace of a Gesture: Fifty Years of Reciprocity

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the exhibition pays twofold tribute to two gracious gestures: that of donating and that of creating. While the MAC regularly features works received as gifts in its exhibitions devoted to the Collection, The Grace of a Gesture is made up entirely of around 200 works that have been donated over its fifty-year history. This truly multidisciplinary event will reveal the countless connections between the selected works and the main trends that have influenced art in recent decades.

Young Canadian Painters

Melanie Authier, Scott Everingham and Dil Hildebrand

Young Canadian Painters is an exhibition of new works by three artists whose practices have gained critical international attention in recent years. Large scale works by Melanie Authier, Scott Everingham and Dil Hildebrand constitute this exhibition that showcases the latest in contemporary painting. Working predominantly in abstraction these artists tackle issues of representation in distinct ways, offering highly complex and at times contradictory compositions that provide the viewer with suggestive narratives without being deliberate.

Re-configuring Abstraction features the work of four contemporary painters who have made their way to abstraction through representational imagery creating confusion between what is the subject and what is the object. Abstract painting is a mode of inquiry that is deeply rooted in the modernist tradition. Yet in 2012, each of these artists is exploring this mode of painting and pushing it into provocative territories. The results of which elicit reconsiderations on the subject matter and plastic nature of paint.

New artworks by emergent, mid-career and long-established Canadian artists is the mix presented in Builders: Canadian Biennial 2012, an exhibition that showcases some of the most provocative and important art being made in this country today.
The show also aims to elucidate how Gallery curators in the departments of Contemporary Art, Indigeneous Art, and Photography make decisions regarding acquisitions. Working at an encyclopedic institution whose collections span from present-day endeavours to historic masterpieces, curators at the NGC build on past precedent to shape present and future holding of contemporary art. They are committed to charting living artists across generations who present determined and original artistic visions.
