Manif d'art 9 - the Quebec city Biennial

February 16 to April 21, 2019

Curator and theme

 

International curator
Jonathan Watkins

Assistant curator
Michelle Drapeau

Theme
Recognizing the grandeur of nature also means turning a more skeptical eye towards the grandeur of human society. As we exist between and against the immensity of our landscapes while remaining oblivious to it, we forget that we are but small creatures in the natural world. If we close our eyes to the sky, the stars, the mountains, and the oceans, we turn away from a rich source of mutual learning and unexplored beauty.
