Manasie Akpaliapik - Univers inuit [POSTPONED]

Considered one of the most gifted artists of his generation, Manasie Akpaliapik, originally from Baffin Island in Nunavut, more specifically the Village of Ikpiarjuk (Arctic Bay), was born in 1955 within a small community of seal hunters. From childhood, he sculpted by observing family members, including his grandparents. Starting in the early 1980s, he embraced sculpture as a profession. And it's in Southern Canada, more precisely in Montréal and Toronto, that the work of this extraordinary observer of oral tradition, moral values, wildlife, the supernatural world and the Arctic environment will develop. The sculptor favours natural, animal-sourced materials such as whalebone, caribou antlers, walrus or narwhal ivory. He is also a virtuoso of stone carving, some of his pieces crafted on occasion from Brazil soapstone, dolomite or marble. Based on this collection consisting of more than 50 remarkable sculptures made between the early 1980s and the mid-2000s, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec has the biggest existing collection of works by Manasie Akpaliapik..

Head in the Cloud[POSTPONED]

We are in the midst of a revolution that is happening at light speed, almost faster and more completely than we can fully grasp. Like other huge shifts that have marked the history of humanity—the advent of writing, the invention of the printing press and the Industrial Revolution to name but a few—the digital age has a significant and multilevel impact on our lives. Most people spend an average of 40 hours a week online, usually on a mobile device. In two days, we produce more data than we have since the dawn of humanity. Huge infrastructures are cropping up everywhere to manage all this Big Data. Surveillance tools and increasingly "intelligent" algorithms track our every move and alter our concept of our privacy. Robots capable of replacing humans at many tasks is no longer science fiction; it has indeed become reality. Head in the Cloud is a playful, immersive exhibition that inspires, frightens and destabilizes. Explore this world in the making, question your relationship with your mobile device and take a minute to think about what you are accepting. Truly!.

Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism[POSTPONED]

Among art history's mythic couples, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera reign supreme and continue to leave their mark on human imagination with their extraordinary destiny, more than 50 years after their death. The Mexican artists are recognized the world over both for their history of passion and their outstanding contribution to modern art. The exhibition, designed and organized by Mondo Mostre, in collaboration with the Vergel Foundation and a contribution from Throckmorton Fine Art, comprises not only works by the artistic duo but also paintings by other modern Mexican artists and numerous photographs that situate the latter in the period during which they lived. The masterpieces presented include 20 works by Frida Kahlo, including 10 paintings and 10 works on paper, among them the famous Self-Portrait with Necklace (1933), Self-Portrait with Braid (1941) and Diego On My Mind (1943), and Rivera's celebrated Arum Vendor (1943). This fascinating exhibition will assemble more than 150 items, including 20 paintings by other Mexican painters such as David Alfaro Siqueiros, Carlos Orozco Romero and María Izquierdo, and 85 photographs produced by several photographers of the period, including a superb selection of works by Manuel and Lola Álvarez Bravo, a couple who rank among the foremost Latin American photographers of the 20th century..
