Joan Mitchell / Jean-Paul Riopelle

Canadian painter Jean-Paul Riopelle (1923-2002) and American painter Joan Mitchell (1925-1992) are, like Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel, Man Ray and Lee Miller, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner, part of the constellation of romantic and artistic mythologies that are as tumultuous as they are prosperous, between admiration and abhorrence, emulation and jealously, solitude and accomplishment. For the first time, an exhibition is examining their respective artistic careers in terms of their relationship, from the time they met in 1955, to their separation in 1979. Some 60 major works stemming from their work and their love story, will be assembled. Organized in partnership with the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), supported by the Estate of Jean-Paul Riopelle in Montréal and the Joan Mitchell Foundation in New York, the exhibition will focus mainly on large-format paintings, a number of works on paper and archival documents from French, Canadian and American private and museum collections. The presentation will explore how the two artists, who shared their lives for nearly 25 years, in Paris, then in Vétheuil in the Seine valley, developed a workshop practice and a distinctive body of work while sustaining a broad dialogue focusing on abstraction. Their tastes for the Impressionist heritage, nature and a form of provocation certainly drew them together. Their romantic relationship entirely shaped their deeply singular conception of painting and work methods. No exhibition has previously offered a fresh perspective of the two painters despite their 25 years of life together and respective fame. The exhibition and the publication that accompanies it will offer a revelation both to the public and to specialists..

The Dress of Nations

The Dress of Nations is made up of 6,000 Seed-dresses, textile miniatures made from pieces of recovered garments. The garments were cut, mixed, reassembled, and stitched together on wires. Each of the Seed-dresses has a golden stamp. Over 400 people from different cultures sent the artist a piece of clothing along with a testimonial. A piece of themselves that tells tales of their desires, loves, and suffering. Fragments of cloth that bear countless secrets and dreams of the human condition. These pieces are memories made solid, reminding us that we are each a fragment of another, forcing us to realize just how much we need each other. To accompany the work, composer Marie Pelletier created Voix des nations ("Voice of Nations"), a soundscape inspired by the songs of many cultures..

Mad About Brains

At the controls of the human body is one magnificently efficient pilot…our brain! Every second of our lives, it processes hundreds of bits of information, to cross a street, read a novel, have a discussion, eat, breathe. One hundred billion neurons synapse at lighting speed to bring us the most awesome, but also the most painful experiences. What happens when the grey matter turns to dark thoughts? Stress, anxiety, language and motor problems, autism and Alzheimer's are among many conditions that could be caused by a malfunction between the ears. The uncharted territory of the brain is a subject of fascination for a wide range of specialists, and little by little, the neurons that compose it are revealing some of their secrets!.
