EZ Montreal Art Podcast: Lynne Cohen

Howdy!

In this episode Eloi Desjardins and Chris ‘Zeke’ Hand discuss the Lynne Cohen exhibit False Clues / Faux Indices at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. During the discussion they manage to also talk about the Lynne Cohen portfolio in Ciel Variable 89, how she is represented by Art 45, how she was in the 2007 Montreal Biennale and the 2001 Mois de la photo. Zeke’s apartment is mentioned as a possible subject, and how Ms. Cohen doesn’t use Photoshop but possibly uses a variety of darkroom techniques (such as dodging and burning). Zeke thinks that Ms. Cohen should trade pictures with Pierre Dorion. Zeke and Eloi discuss the catalogue for False Clues / Faux Indices and mention in passing Andreas Gursky, Vik Muniz and Adad Hannah. They wonder where the exhibit will tour. They then talk about the various ways to become a member of the museum and admission prices. Eloi wants to know what people want to hear and Zeke lists the exhibits he want to go see.

EZ Montreal Art Podcast: Laurent Grasso

Howdy!

In this episode Eloi Desjardins and Chris ‘Zeke’ Hand discuss the Laurent Grasso exhibit Uraniborg at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. During the discussion they manage to also talk about Zeke’s interview with Pierre Dorion, Michel de Broin, the BGL show at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, A bird ballet by Neels Castillon, Bettina Forget, Pope Benedict XVI‘s abdication. And after having recorded the discussion Zeke realized he was completely and utterly wrong about their being a mistake in the museum’s map. He just didn’t read it properly.

Pierre Dorion Talking About his Exhibit at the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal

Howdy!

Last November I had the chance to interview Pierre Dorion about the exhibit he had at the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal and about his practice. I was finally able to finish editing it over the holidays. If you have a spare 37 minutes to watch, I think hope you might like it.

or if you prefer YouTube to Archive.org

Either way I’d suggest watching it on a fullscreen as the native resolution is 1280 x 720, and it was filmed in HD.

The EZ Montreal Art Podcast, episode 9: Pierre Dorion, Janet Biggs & Aude Moreau

Howdy!

Last week, Eloi Desjardins from Un Show de Mot’Arts and I got together to talk about the Pierre Dorion, Janet Biggs and Aude Moreau exhibits at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.

The only thing I could really find online were these two excerpts from videos by Ms. Biggs. M. Dorion does not appear to do the internet and Mlle. Moreau hasn’t updated her website in a couple of years.

Myriam Yates, Racetrack – Superstar – Ghost

Howdy!

Ms. Yates’ video is of Blue Bonnets being transformed
Before, during and after U2 performed
Long static shots
How do you connect if there are no dots?

Some interesting angles with some interesting views
Oddly compelling, I kept looking for clues.
It’s not the type of art I normally praise
But after looking at so much art, I might have been in a daze.
