Carlos Fentanes (CF): “Fosters the practice of 14 artists.” Why 14 artists, why not 15? or 13? Exclusively just them? Isn’t it boring? How do choose them? They seem very different between them.
The gallery didn’t anwer.
In their Instagram page they say: “Foster the practices of 14 artists / Expand theoretical discourses / Interdisciplinary”
What’s that mean?
Well, in their web page they have 15 artists in their list. So why 14? maybe they didn’t update their page.
In their page in the section “Info” they expand a little bit more this: ” Galerie Hugues Charbonneau fosters the individual practices of its artists, and expands theoretical discourse through the contextualization of projects within and outside of the gallery’s walls. Artists represented by the gallery have recently exhibited in many international museums and biennales, including those in Austria, Brazil, Belgium, Britain, Canada, China, Croatia, Finland, France, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Switzerland, Uruguay and the USA. Hugues Charbonneau served on the Board of Directors of multiple non-profit organisations, including the Centre de recherche urbaine de Montréal (CRUM), Skol, Artexte and the Contemporary Art Gallery Association (AGAC).”
It seems to me that this is not a conventional commercial art gallery and is focused on promote their artists on biennales and festivals around the world. That’s a different kind of gallery that I haven’t see before and they have an interesteing project too.
Sadly there’s not too much information about this or anything else, I think the only way to know for certain is travelling to Montreal and see by myself. There’s no information for submissions or residencies.
