The Québec Triennial 2008
Nothing is Lost, Nothing is Created, Everything is Transformed
Publication accompanying the most ambitious Quebec contemporary art exhibition of its kind ever presented. Published entirely in English, this striking oversized edition explores innovative trends in a wide range of fields – including painting, photography, sculpture, video and installation – and is the result of extensive field research by curators who combed numerous exhibitions and artists’ studios looking for the very best in contemporary art. In the first section, the curators offer their insights with four essays. The second and much more extensive section focuses on the participating artists, each of whom has written a personal introduction, accompanied by numerous reproductions. Featuring the work of forty emerging and established artists, this lavishly illustrated publication provides a revealing look at one of the most active and distinctive art scenes in North America. With new work by David Altmejd, Adad Hannah, Isabelle Hayeur, Carlos and Jason Sanchez and more.
