Curated by Marie J. Jean, this project presents experimentations by seven contemporary artists in the period interiors of five historic sites in Montreal. Concurrently, at VOX, Klaus Scherübel has produced an art intervention that employs the period room format to reconstitute two exhibitions organized in 1947 by the Automatist artists.

The “artistic reactivations” of the second Automatist exhibition (1947) and the Mousseau-Riopelle Exhibition at Muriel Guilbault’s (1947) by Klaus Scherübel are the last two iterations of VOX’s research project on the history of exhibitions in Québec, “Créer à rebours vers l’exposition”, begun in 2016.
Jean-Paul Kelly’s work questions the limits of representation by examining complex associations in the production, reception, and circulation of documentary material, using found images and films often sourced from online archives. VOX is hosting his first solo exhibition in Montreal.
As part of the exhibition Period rooms. 8 art experimentations, a series of personalized urban tours devised by VOX for newcomers to Québec and/or those in the process of learning French will take place between June 15 and July 13—on foot, public transit or chartered bus.

Watch our interview with Jonathan Monk about Exhibit Model Three, presented last year. Following the Exhibit Model One and Two publications, a special “newspaper” about our site-specific installation—featuring an essay by Marie J. Jean—is now available at VOX!
This book examines the particular relationship that Tousignant established between his art practice and that of the exhibition. It seeks to contextualize significant works at the time of their public viewing, while providing an in-depth study of the history of exhibitions in Canada.
This publication documents every step in the production of this undertaking—a process that took three years—and includes the artist’s correspondence, the geodesic calculations, and images of the various participating sites.
Our new book, with essays by Marie J. Jean, Robert Graham and Zoë Tousignant, contextualizes this major project in the artist’s practice, notably his Land Art projects, in a journey from local to global.
