Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Fredericton NB

Alex Colville, Femme, chien et canoë, sérigraphie sur papier, 1982
Soyons réalistes : l’art de la région atlantique

1 juillet - 15 janvier 2017
Différents artistes (collection permanente)

Qu’est-ce qui distingue l’art fait dans un lieu géographique précis? Est-ce de l’art de la région atlantique du Canada à proprement parler, ou simplement des œuvres créées dans cette région? Pour bien des gens, le réalisme magique (ou réalisme exacerbé) est la tendance stylique la plus facilement associée à l’art de la région. La collection de la Galerie d’art Beaverbrook contient d’incroyables œuvres phares créées par les principaux artistes de ce courant. Notre exposition mettra donc en vedette des œuvres parmi les plus admirées d’Alex Colville, de Christopher Pratt, de Mary Pratt, de Fred Ross, de David Blackwood, de Tom Forrestall et de William Forrestall.

L’art créé dans ce lieu et représentant ce lieu varie cependant au fil du temps. L’exposition commence donc par des œuvres d’artistes itinérants qui sont venus de loin pour capter des images exotiques et romantiques afin d’en faire profiter leurs publics à domicile et les y vendre. Notons par exemple, un chef-d’œuvre de l’artiste Allemand-Américain, Albert Bierstadt et des pièces du XIXe siècle d’Henry Standham et de George Thomas Taylor. Une œuvre du moderniste britannique Harold Gilman présente une vue idyllique du bassin de Bedford à Halifax pendant l’été 1918, quelques mois avant que l’explosion d’Halifax dévaste la ville. Aussi, les artistes continuent de venir représenter le territoire et la vie de la région atlantique; parmi eux, Arthur Lismer, Kathleen Daly et Ronald York Wilson.

La nature des sujets et des approches en création artistique change dans les années 1950; de plus en plus d’artistes sont nés dans la région ou s’y établissent, comme Bruno Bobak, Miller Gore Brittain, Molly Lamb Bobak, William Goodridge Roberts et Jack Weldon Humphrey.

Depuis quelques années, bien des artistes tentent d’établir un équilibre entre les styles et les intérêts locaux et mondiaux, comme les contemporains suivants : Marie-Hélène Allain, Mario Doucette, Roméo Savoie, Herménégilde Chiasson, Gerald Ferguson, Eric Fischl, John Greer, Thaddeus Holownia, Garry Neil Kennedy, Robin Peck et Vanessa Paschakarnis.

Open Studio, Toronto ON

Visiting Artists Exhibition: Mario Doucette & Liza Eurich
Artist Talks: Friday, June 17, 2016, 6:00 – 7:00 PM

Opening Reception: Friday, June 17, 2016, 7:00 – 9:00 PM
Exhibitions on display until July 16, 2016
Each year Open Studio selects four professional artists with or without printmaking experience to create traditional and/or experimental works in the print medium of their choice, working collaboratively with a print media artist. The Visiting Artist Residency, in operation since 1983, is a popular program that receives applications from artists from around the world. In conjunction with the residency, each artist exhibits the work produced during their period in the Studio, and gives an artist talk. These exhibitions are the result of this intensive work period. The second of two Visiting Artist exhibitions will features work by artists Mario Doucette and Liza Eurich. The accompanying brochure, with essays by Jennifer Winter and Kendra Ainsworth is available here.

Mario Doucette: Dispersions
Mario Doucette is an Acadian artist from Moncton, NB. He is a painter, but also works with video, digital animation, performance and Super8 film. In 2004, after a residency in the French village of Brouage, he created Histoires, a series of works combining drawing and painting that reflects on the effects of colonialism. He has been featured in many exhibitions in several Canadian museums and galleries, notably at Toronto’s ROM where he was a Sobey Art Award finalist in 2008. He recently contributed work to Oh Canada in 2012 (MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA), The Painting Project in 2013 (Galerie de l’UQAM, Montreal, QC), and Shine a Light: Canadian Biennial in 2014 (National Art Gallery, Ottawa, ON). He is currently working on a new series of paintings and sculptures called Harias. Mario Doucette is represented by Galerie Division (Montréal/Toronto).
Doucette has recently transitioned towards oil painting to further immerse himself in the genre of history painting. Painters historically understood the value of printmaking, and many fostered close relationships with printmakers in an attempt to spread their work and fame.
Raphael, for example, was not a printmaker. Instead he collaborated with Marcantonio Raimondi, an Italian engraver known for collaborating with many artists. Raphael’s paintings were well known in 16th century Italy. But his international reputation largely came from Raimondi’s reproductions of his paintings. The distribution of Raphael’s prints spread far more widely and thus his original paintings were made famous.
It is this type of collaborative work that Doucette is undertaking during the Visiting Artist Residency program at Open Studio, working with a skilled printer using intaglio printmaking techniques to reproduce compositions from recent paintings. This method of dissemination was popular before the invention of colour photo reproductions, however, for this project, Doucette will produce prints with elements of originality rather than exact photographic reproductions of my paintings.
This project also involves an ongoing attempt to further Doucette’s research on the art of propaganda. His work stems from the hypothesis that history is a lie that no one ever questions. Often artists were obligated to convey an official message, sometimes largely tainted by political motivations, thus evoking an incomplete version of the facts. This is certainly the case of the artists who represented the history of the Acadians in Canada. It is a history that is often a one-sided perspective from a Colonial British viewpoint, which presented the Acadian population in terms of a problem that needed to be solved. The residency at Open Studio adds to the series of works that presents a new version of history, shedding light on our colonial past, reframing key figures and exposing false ideas.
Mario Doucette’s residency is supported by the New Brunswick Arts Board.

L'Acadie mythique - Saint Mary's Art Gallery, Halifax NS

MARIO DOUCETTE, Le génocide des Micmacs en Nouvelle-Écosse (Cornwallis) - étude, 2015
September 12 - November 15
Opening reception : Friday, September 11, 2015
curator : Harlan Johnson

L'Acadie mythique brings together 20 artists from across diasporic Acadie - from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, Maine, Québec and Louisiana - in a conversation about the meanings of historical artifacts, both material and immaterial, and about how such objects, images, rituals and ideas are deployed to constitute a mythical identity for Acadians. It invites artists to explore how we might reinterpret and reinvent such mythologies to broaden the scope of what is imaginable, and thus possible, for Acadians in the here and now. Curator Harlan Johnson selected objects in Acadian and Cjun community museums and archives and invited artists to respond to them in whatever way they chose, restricted only by material parameters that allow the works to be shipped between regions and across an international border. Responses range from a direct engagement with a specific obkect, or with motifs or ideas derived from a class of objects, to a more free and general engagement with mythology and identity in an Acadian context.

Participating artists : Steve Breaux, Kathy Reed Mary Perrin, Denise Comeau, François Gaudet, Donnalee Downe, Becka Viau, Alisa Arsenault, Rebecca Belliveau, Rémi Belliveau, Paul Édouard Bourque, Mario Doucette, Yvon Gallant, Vicky Lentz, Christian Michaud, Ronald Ed Nadeau, Carol Pelletier, Thérèse L. Provenzano and Cheryle St-Onge.
