Leopold Plotek: No Work, Nor Device, Nor Knowledge, Nor Wisdom.
Guest curator: E. C. Woodley.

Conceived as Leopold Plotek's first survey, this exhibition spans five decades, including the debut of his most recent paintings alongside pivotal earlier canvases that establish the artist's formal investigations and his intellectual rapport with Sigmund Freud, Melanie Klein and Adrian Stokes.

Born in 1948 in Moscow to Jewish parents, Plotek later moved to Warsaw with his father who became an economic attaché to the Polish Embassy in Moscow during the late Stalinist period. Living and working in Montreal since 1960, he has created a substantial body of work that has been extensively exhibited and collected, carving an essential place in Quebec's artistic history. Initially a protégé of prominent Plasticien artist Yves Gaucher, Plotek became a teacher and major influence himself, forming a new generation of artists who are at the forefront of Canadian painting today, including Allison Katz, Etienne Zack, Martin Golland and Ben Klein.

While staging a picture of Plotek's evolving subject matter and existential world-view, this exhibition foregrounds his drive to forge a studio production of unique works. The discordance of form and genre that Plotek favours and explores invests his oeuvre with a depth and complexity that defies both modernist traditions and contemporary art market pressures.

Plotek's radical, immersive works mine the territories of memory and experience, the subconscious and the intellect, the abstract and the figurative. Positioning pictorial space as a vehicle for both narrative content and emotional exploration, Plotek re-imagines architecture and objects, artists, philosophers and gods, displacing the cultural pantheon onto precarious grounds and offering poignant commentary on the current state of Western civilization, its enduring folly and persistently dark psyche.

Brendan Fernandes: Lost Bodies.
Lost Bodies brings a world-renowned Canadian artist's work into dialogue with two of the country's most distinctive collections of African art: the Justin and Elisabeth Lang Collection of African Art at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston, Ontario and the collection of the Textile Museum of Canada. Brendan Fernandes offers multiple points of connection that draw upon traditional African textiles, costume and masks, gestures of Western ballet, and elegant, poetic dance choreographies within the museum vault, filmed in the archive of the Agnes Etherington Art Centre.
With this fresh approach to re-presenting African artifacts in formal museum displays, Fernandes reconsiders museum conventions in a set of new video, print and sculptural interventions. The artist's montage of Western classical dance and the collected object is concentrated around precise body language that raises questions about visual and discursive practices that shape understandings of African art within public collections.
On Fri 11 Nov, 7:30pm, in conjunction with the opening reception and catalogue launch, Brendan Fernandes will present a special performance of In Touch, danced by Lua Shayenne within the spaces of the exhibition.
This project is made possible by the Justin and Elisabeth Lang Foundation Fund and George Taylor Richardson Memorial Fund, Queen's University. The exhibition is curated by Sunny Kerr, and has been developed in partnership with the Textile Museum of Canada.

Christopher Reid Flock: Integration / Disintegration. As an experimental ceramic artist, Christopher Reid Flock is profoundly influenced by the significant time that he spent in Japan and the mentorship that he received from some of Canada's most respected potters. Among other accolades, Flock was the recipient of the Winifred Shantz Award for Ceramics in 2014. Although this ambitious exhibition includes some works from his earlier career, it features more prominently his large-scale, installation-based works that whimsically "play" with notions of function while merging rapid prototyping with classical clay process. Companion exhibition: works by Flock's mentors Bruce Cochrane, Diane Nasr and Kayo O'Young ... more
