From March 9, 2017 to March 22, 2017
In connection with the exhibition Now Have a Look at This Machine, the public is invited to two tours of the exhibition in company of the artist Emanuel Licha and curator Lesley Johnstone on Thursday, March 9 at 6 p.m. (in French) and Wednesday, March 22 at 6 p.m. (in English).
Artist and filmmaker Emanuel Licha was born in Montréal in 1971. He studied urban geography and then the visual arts. His work in film, video installation and photography focuses on the role of architecture in the representation of conflicts, leading to a reading of the features of the urban landscape as social, historical and political signs. His recent projects investigate the means by which traumatic and violent events are being witnessed and observed. Recent solo exhibitions have been held in Québec at the Musée régional de Rimouski, as well as SBC Gallery and Galerie B-312 in Montréal; and in Europe at LOOP 09, Barcelona; Galerie Cortex Athletico, Bordeaux; Canadian Cultural Centre, Paris; Careof, Milan; and Institute for Contemporary Art, Pristina; as well as at Ex Teresa Arte Actual, Mexico City.
