Québec Art: The Work Ahead of Us

Numa Amun’s work, Citadelle des Sens (Vert), is among the dozens of works curated for the just opened second installation of a special exhibit, the Québec Triennial, at the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art (Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal) running through the first week of January, 2012.

The largest event ever devoted to Québec contemporary art,  “the Triennial is the Musée’s opportunity to demonstrate its commitment towards its immediate community, to bear witness to the vitality of Québec’s contemporary artistic production and to propose new points of view on the present,” the museum says.

The Québec  Triennial is a series of exhibitions which occur every three years.  This second edition is called The Work Ahead of Us, mounted on an unprecedented scale that fills all eight of  the museum’s exhibition galleries and spills over into its indoor public spaces, as well as Place des Festivals in the Quartier des Spectacles and the Espace culturel Georges-Émile-Lapalme at Place des Arts.

The exhibit includes structural, sound, performance and other installations.
