Charles Gagnon is a major figure in Canadian contemporary art, one of the few multidisciplinary artists of his generation. A common theme in his many artistic experiments, whether painting, photography, collage, film, sound, or sculpture, is the material results of his eclectic yet reflective take on existence. Our exhibition features photographs from the artist's estate and will include Polaroid SX-70 original prints, as well as gelatin silver prints he made while using the Minox camera in the late 1970s. His works from the 1990s entitled Tables de matière and Mythes, display Gagnon's fascinating use of the medium to explore issues that occupied the mind of a mature artist and closely relate to paintings he made at the same time.
