April 12 - May 7, 2017
Galerie D'Este is proud to present Papier +, in collaboration with the Papier 17 art fair. In this exhibition, concomitant with our participation in the art fair, we will show other works on paper from several of our artists. From Fiona Annis' photographs to Ivan Markovic's sculptures, passing by Jean-Paul Jérôme's collages and Cynthia Dinan-Mitchell's serigraphs, this exhibition aims to reflect on the limitless range of possibilities offered by this single material.
Founded in 2006, the Papier art fair has since become a staple of Montreal's art scene. Known to exhibit exclusively paper based artworks, this art fair has managed to distinguish itself by its daring and creativity-inducing premise.
For its tenth edition, Galerie D'Este has decided to associate itself with this event by, not only participating at the art fair, but also creating the satellite exhibition Papier +, in which we will show more of our artist’s paper productions.
Through drawing, painting, collage, serigraph, photography and sculpture, each of these artists reimagines this classic material, once the primary medium for artistic expression. During technology-driven times, it becomes increasingly important to reflect on paper, not only as a medium on which to project one's artistic imagery, but also as a material with its own physical presence and expressive aesthetical value.
