The Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal

08/10/2010 - 04/01/2011


In conjunction with the exhibition 2010 Sobey Art Award, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal is presenting works by the four Québec semifinalists BGL, Pascal Grandmaison, Adad Hannah and Karen Tam also nominated for this year’s award. The show features a selection of their recent works chosen by Lesley Johnstone, curator at the Musée and member of the Curatorial Panel for the 2010 Sobey Art Award.

Adad Hannah transposes historical paintings and sculptures into videos and photographs, interrogating the codes, conventions and temporal dimensions of each of these media. Here he investigates Rodin’s famous sculpture The Burghers of Calais.
