Critical Distance is pleased to present … move or be moved by some thing rather than oneself.,
an exhibition that considers curating and choreography as materials and subjects. Bringing
together the work of Guillaume Adjutor Provost (Montréal), Adam Basanta (Montréal),
Adrienne Crossman (Windsor), and Nadège Grebmeier Forget (Montréal), the exhibition is
curated by Florence-Agathe Dubé-Moreau (Montréal) and Maude Johnson (Montréal).
… move or be moved by some thing rather than oneself. probes at the politics generated or
renewed when curatorial and choreographic methodologies are (re)located together in the gallery
space. It gathers artists who, on the one hand, borrow from these two approaches; and who,
on the other hand, transform the multiple spaces (physical, virtual, social, political, historical,
etc.) and temporalities of the gallery. For more information, visit the exhibition at Critical Distance
in Suite 302 (on the 3rd floor of Artscape Youngplace) Thursday–Sunday from 12–5 pm
through August 5, 2018, or read more about it on our website at www.criticaldistance.ca.
Engaged in Montréal’s visual and live arts community, performance artist Nadège Grebmeier Forget
embraces interdisciplinarity and curation in her practice. Recent exhibitions and performances
have been presented in venues such as VU PHOTO (Québec, 2016), She Works Flexible–Flex Space
(Houston, 2016), and CIRCA art actuel (Montréal, 2017).
This photograph is part of a multi-platform intervention by Nadège Grebmeier Forget, which consists of
a selection of archival materials stemming from the performance Rendering on View (Betty Rowland meets
Angela Aames)(OPTICA, Montréal, May 27, 2017) and divided among CDCC’s various communication
channels, including this billboard.
