LA MACHINE QUI ENSEIGNAIT DES AIRS AUX OISEAUX
Musée d’Art Contemporain, Montréal
February 02, 2021 – April 25, 2021

The Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (MAC) is thrilled to unveil its rich, Québec-infused Fall programme. The exhibition La machine qui enseignait des airs aux oiseaux, invites visitors to discover the effervescence taking place in the studios of 34 local artists, mostly living and working in and around Montreal, and who have never (or rarely) shown at the MAC. The public will come up close and personal with the MAC’s newly acquired works for its permanent collection, the result of this year’s commitment by the MAC to supporting Québec’s artistic eco-system during the pandemic (details available shortly).

La machine qui enseignait des airs aux oiseaux is the product of a two-year reflection by the exhibition curators around the embodiment of corporal language and its impact on the body, movement and matter. The exhibition took shape after over 80 visits to local artists’ studios and multiple encounters with a wide variety of participants. The very concept and presentation of this innovative show evolved in an organic way over time and bears the influence of the tumultuous times we are currently experiencing. This Fall, MAC visitors are invited to feast their eyes with freshly minted and coolly local contemporary art by 34 artists committed to engaging, topical and diverse work practices.

With a film programme entitled “chorus, talk through life”, organised by guest curator, Ronald Rose-Antoinette.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue comprising an essay by Krista Lynes, short texts by Nicole Brossard, Marie-Andrée Gill, Rawi Hage, Symon Henry, Joana Joachim, Michael Nardone, Madeleine Thien, Maude Veilleux, Jacob Wren, and a collection of excerpts, edited by Raymond Boisjoly, by Maya Deren, Jeanne Favret-Saada, Branden Hookway, Alfred Jarry, Catherine Malabou, Ferdinand de Saussure and Michel Serres.
