Manif d'art 6 - The Quebec city biennale

May 3 to June 3, 2012

Curator and theme

Curator
Nicole Gingras

Theme
Machines are complex inventions intended to simplify our lives. Their movements, coordinated down to the nearest millimetre, are calibrated to reach a speed of productivity far exceeding human capacity. Understanding machines means, above all, making their designs accessible, designs which, as in a work of art, involve sets of coherent shapes revealing their purpose.
