The selection of the six pairs of artists Collection Season 2 is now completed and the work has begun. The works will be delivered to subscribers in less than two months.
The last pair of collaborators will remain anonymous. These anonymous collaborators will prepare a calligraphy based on an article of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The manuscript will be circulated in the public sphere, including advertising space in a Quebec magazine. A limited edition series of 30 magazines will be provided to Montreal Sharing subscribers. This will be Partage Montreal’s first forage into work that directly addresses social issues in our community.
Lorna Bauer and Jon Knowles pose another question by looking at the protocols of production and circulation as they pertain to working as a duo. This may mean: divided images, odd, different, or recurring.
Dominique Sirois and Gregory Chatonsky have seized the opportunity to create ceramics based on a topographic relief produced from the face of Kim Kardashian.
The Trépanier - Voghell pair will also emphasize the sculptural object in its relation to the surface and the medium through the use of the scrap and negative space.
Annie Descôteaux and Vincent Gagnon will share the roles using prints of digital images created by Vincent Gagnon, Annie Descôteaux will make series of collages.
Jo-Anne Balcaen and David K. Ross will depict their common interest to the exhibition spaces and the art world through the diptych.
Even if the final images are not as I describe, we will not have to wait long to see the finished work, I am grateful to the all artists for the generosity of their proposals and I admire the range of ideas, techniques, and resources deployed by twelve artists for Partage Montreal‘s 2nd Season.
I cannot tell you how excited I am to see the finished works!
