JEAN-PIERRE GAUTHIER: Machines at Play

January 8, 2010 - March 21, 2010

 

Exhibition Opening: January 8, 2010 at 7:00 pm

Montreal artist Jean Pierre Gauthier has been active on the contemporary art scene since the mid-1990s, when he quickly gained recognition for the inventiveness of his work. The kinetic installations that have emerged from his exploration of the acoustic and metaphorical potential of the found object combine humour and poetry in a rigorous investigative approach. With an ingenuity seldom seen, they bring together the notions of order and chaos, permanence and fragility, performance and gratuitousness.

This exhibition is organized and circulated by the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, with financial support from the Museums Assistance Program of the Department of Canadian Heritage.
