Continuing its research into the practice, history and future of exhibitions and their documentation, VOX presents the fifth in its series of documentary exhibitions, dedicated this time to the event 03 23 03 – First International Encounter on Contemporary Art in Montreal, 1977. Organized by France Morin, Chantal Pontbriand and Normand Thériault and presented in a disused post office, this major event included an exhibition, a series of performances, and debates.
Austrian artist VALIE EXPORT is considered one of the most important figures in the fields of Conceptual Art, performance and film. Active since the 1960s, she continues to have an ongoing influence with her seminal feminist and media-critical works. This monographic exhibition is part of a research program initiated by VOX in 2005, revisiting major artistic practices, here with a significant body of work that has never been presented in Montreal.
