Narwhal Projects is proud to announce that artist collective Team Macho has been selected to participate in Galerie l’ Université du Québec à Montréal’s upcoming major group exhibition, Le Projet Peinture/The Painting Project, as organized by Curator Julie Bélisle and General Curator Louise Déry.
The Painting Project. A Snapshot of Painting in Canada proposes to delineate the practice of painting in Canada for a wide audience, based on exhaustive research in a didactic register and with a selection of 60 works by as many artists. The ambition of this initiative is to provide a broader view of painting in Canada by founding a “panorama in the making” according to 4 sections: the figure of reality, fictional worlds, painting as subject, and hybrid practices.Unique for the diversity of recent works on display, the exhibition testifies to the intense activity taking place in painters’ studios all across Canada. The project also includes a virtual exhibition, which will be launched in fall 2013 to give the national and international public access to a lively, prolific art scene. The project has been curated by Julie Bélisle, with Louise Déry acting as general curator.
Accompanying the exhibition is The Painting Project a comprehensive 340-page catalogue, including essays by Louise Déry, Julie Bélisle, Robin Anthony, Nicolas Mavrikakis, and Jonathan Shaughnessy.
