The exhibition Qui parle ? / Who Speaks? brings together a dozen artworks recently acquired by the Gallery that problematize, in different ways and from different viewpoints, the authorial status of the contemporary artist, their discursivity, and the multiple positions each adopt as a speaking subject in their practice. Made up of videos, photos and conceptual installations presented alongside texts and related documents, this exhibition aims to highlight direct and indirect manifestations of the artist’s identity in language, and to examine the many other voices (individual, sociocultural, institutional) woven into their work and the exhibition.

By pursuing the reflexive work undertaken in previous exhibitions of artworks from the collection, this presentation of new acquisitions takes into consideration the complexity inherent to the question “who speaks?” via curatorial strategies and public programs that also challenge the role of the Gallery in the construction and legitimization of art discourses.

This exhibition is part of the Montreal Digital Spring 2018.
