A Pool is Water

unspecified-1

Although it is often through the framing of other curators that I am introduced to artists, it is still a fascinating experience to watch other curators recontextualize practices that I thought myself familiar with through having made exhibitions with those artists previously. Visiting Montréal in late August to check out Galerie Division’s A Pool is Water, I found myself introduced to the works of Raque Ford, Athena Papadopoulos and Megan Rooney, and looking anew at the practices of Tiziana La Melia and Maryse Larivière, thanks to the careful curation of Loreta Lamargese.

I wrote about the exhibition—about the colour red, animals and the secret desire for longing to remain unrequited—and the review has been published by Hyperallergic under the awesome title of “Evocative and Futile Fantasies of Nature Tamed.” It’s my first time writing for the publication; take a look and let me know what you think, especially if you are able to make it to see the exhibition before it closes on Saturday, 03 September 2016.
