Multiple artists

Noire campagne
Aug. 13, 2011 to Sept. 10, 2011

The exhibition Dark Countryside explores the dark side of landscape. In contrast with the pastoral and bucolic image generally associated with this genre of painting, the artists brought together for this exhibition offer us often disquieting, inhospitable depictions of countrysides. Straying far from the idyllic view inherited from the landscape painting tradition, the scenes offered here show panoramas that are disturbing either because they supremely convey the threat of a power we cannot control, or because various human actions have altered the landscape, imperilling the “natural order” and changing our relationship to the land. This group exhibition includes works by Stéphanie Béliveau, Bertrand Carrière, Dominique Goupil, Betty Goodwin, Graeme Patterson, Marc Séguin and Irene F. Whittome.
