Arsenal Contemporary Art Montreal is pleased to present the exhibition Anthology, a selection of monumental works from the collection.

About

This winter, Arsenal Contemporary Art Montreal presents a new selection of works from the collection. Come and discover our exhibition space, transformed to show imposing works, in size and in content. 

Jon Rafman

Rafman’s work explores the limits and imbrications of real and virtual worlds and asserts the prominence of technologies in our time. The artist creates a virtual universe displaying the rather dark sides of the internet, a “place” that the artist describes as a platform for emancipation with sometimes disturbing expressions. 

Eric Yahnker

First trained as a journalist, Californian artist Eric Yahnker multiplies references to the American pop-culture. Using caricatures and irony, his practice fully grasps the contemporary sociopolitical Zeitgeist. 

Caroline Mesquita

Caroline Mesquita’s work mainly consists of sculptural installations with human forms, which she uses to explore the complexity of humans’ behaviors. She infuses vitality in her assemblages, which probe the notion of action through a theatricality. 

Nicolas Lachance

Heterogeneous in appearance, Nicolas Lachance's pictorial practice steadily follows the image phenomena of appearance and disappearance. The photographic metaphor serves as a matrix for a long and laborious manual work. 

Kapwani Kiwanga

Kiwanga’s training in anthropology and comparative religion permeates her artistic practice. Respecting a rigorous method, the artist’s works are a continuation of her research, exploring power relations through the symbolism of certain objects or materials.

 Arsenal Contemporary Art Montreal is proud to present artwork from the Giverny Capital Art Collection: pink-blue by Kapwani Kiwanga, recipient of the 2018 Sobey Art Award. The presentation of this work was made possible thanks to the Giverny Foundation for Contemporary Art.
