Abstract (English)

"Seeing and Believing is an illustrated overview of the work of contemporary Canadian artist Luis Jacob. The book invites the reader to consider what is behind the image, and how it is informed by the museum/exhibition context and the viewer. With Seeing and Believing Jacob explores the role of the art museum as frame, and the artwork in its capacity to “look back” at the contemporary viewer. An important figure in contemporary art, Jacob’s work explores the subjectivity of aesthetic experience, and the uncanny dimension of our encounters with works of art. The book focuses on three of his own exhibitions : Tableaux Vivants at Fonderie Darling, Montreal in 2010; Pictures at an Exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto in 2011; and L’oeil, la brèche, l’image/The Eye, the Hole, the Picture at the McCord Museum, Montreal in 2012" -- p. [4] of cover.
