During the summer of 2014, the Musée d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul will offer an exciting journey among the works of some 20 proponents of Québec’s modern pictorial and sculptural art during the years 1950 through 2000.
Some artists chose total abstraction while others preserved traces of figuration. All of them, however explored the relationships between the line and colour, the content and the form, the concrete surface and the hidden meaning, and they devised an amazing variety of artistic solutions. This exhibition of great collectors’ favourites welcomes the visitor to a discovery of paintings and sculptures which represented a new aesthetic approach and a bold formal dialogue. Each in their own way, these artists questioned what art is and who we are.
