Folie/Culture, Quebec City, Canada
September 19 – September 29, 2019
Curator: Julia Roberge Van Der Donckt
“As part of our current theme Walk on Eggshells!, Folie/Culture invites you to the collective exhibition Le cabinet des censuré.e.s, which will be held from September 19 to 29 at L’aise, 340, Saint-Roch Street, suite 201 in Québec. The vernissage, the launch of esse issue 97 | Appropriation and performances will take place on September 19 at 5 p.m.
This exhibition, which is curated by Julia Roberge Van Der Donckt (Montréal), proposes to consider how censorship affects artists. Le cabinet des censuré.e.s is an opportunity to explore the psychological dimension of such a situation through testimonies, artworks and performances. Projects falling through due to lack of support from disseminators, works withdrawn without notice, in situ interventions deemed inappropriate… these are all manifestations of a phenomenon that often operates in an insidious way. In any case, the objective remains the same: to recontextualize censored works and unleash their destabilizing potential once again.”
