“A century after the outbreak of World War I, this exceptional exhibition of over one hundred paintings and an equal number of drawings and prints executed by the greatest avant-garde figures of the time, sheds new light on the extraordinary artistic cross-currents presiding over the major developments in modern art that took place in Germany and France between 1900 and 1914. First on view in Switzerland at the Kunsthaus Zürich, and then at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts’ showing of the exhibition will be distinguished not only for its exclusive presentation of major works, but also for its wealth of documentation, including more than 200 photographs, postcards, stereographic images, magazines and newspapers focussing on Paris in 1900, as well as chronicling World War I, providing a broad historical context for this period of intense creativity.”

River City 3 par Saucier + Perrotte unveiled in Toronto


Saucier + Perrotte’s mid-sized building will be among the most artistically exciting high-rises constructed in Toronto since the onset of the condo boom…

And its textured façade will reflect and freshly interpret the long-standing interest of Mr. Saucier and Mr. Perrotte in the effects of wind and water on stone, and in the natural forces that sculpt the earth, creating places and landscapes from the raw stuff of geology.” – John Bentley Mays, Special to The Globe and Mail

Gilles Saucier is one of 18 artists invited to participate in the exhibition Big Bang, which is being held at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts from November 6, 2011 to January 22, 2012.

From the Press Release :

Nathalie Bondil, Museum Director and Chief Curator, gave carte blanche to eighteen Quebec artists working in a range of disciplines in order to pay tribute to contemporary Montreal creativity. This multimedia presentation, as innovative as it is federative, brings together Denys Arcand and Adad Hannah (film and visual arts), Melissa Auf der Maur (music), Geneviève Cadieux (visual arts), Marie Chouinard (dance), Claude Cormier (landscape architecture/urban design), Collectif Rita (design), Collectif En Masse (murals), Jean Derome (music), Nancy Huston and Jennifer Alleyn (literature and film), Pierre La pointe (music) Wajdi Mouawad (theatre), Jeannot Painchaud (circus arts), Roland Poulin (sculpture), Renata Morales (fashion), Michel Rabagliati (comic strips) and Gilles Saucier (architecture). The artists give free rein to their imaginations with a view to reinterpreting a work from the Museum’s collection by means of ideas whose motivations and responses are as varied as are the talents and areas of expression. These singular pieces reveal not only the attachments formed by the artists to the works of their choice, but also the inexhaustible vitality to be derived from the Museum’s encyclopaedic collection throughout the generations.”

This exhibition is organized by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
