Abstract (English)

"Selected from the permanent collection of the Musee d'art contemporain de Montreal by curator of collections Josee Belisle, this fascinating and unusual exhibition featured painting, photography, film, mixed media and sculptural installations by nationally and internationally-known contemporary artists Bernd and Hilla Becher, Christian Boltanski, Melvin Charney, Thomas Corriveau, Angela Grauerholz, Claude Hamelin, Raymond Lavoie, Arnaud Maggs and Francine Savard. Examining the notion of memory (in its element of alternately lasting and fleeting impressions) and history (in its simultaneous connotation of finiteness and perpetuity), this selection interpreted"archive" in the broadest terms. Organized and circulated by the Musee d'art contemporain de Montreal with the assistance of the Department of Canadian Heritage." -- Publisher's website.
