Montréal, I Love You
From April 12 to May 20, 2014, the MEKIC Art Gallery will present an exhibition entitled Montreal, I Love You, showcasing the work of seven Iranian painters who use their diverse plastic mediums in a creative process inspired by their singular visions of Montreal life, integration, and multi-culturalism, presenting the city they have adopted in all the plurality of its many faces.
This exhibit arose out of a meeting of these young Iranian artists who, revisiting the theme of immigration, reflect jointly on the various aspects of life in Montreal. They integrate their personal and collective past, as well as fragments of their reinvented life, with Montreal's urban, social and cultural landscape in order to exhibit artworks of Montreal as it is dreamed, seen, real, or imagined.
Without dwelling on stereotypes surrounding the migration and assimilation of one culture into another, the artists reassess symbols and narratives that depict daily life in this colourful metropolis and, in turn, their immediate environment. This yields pieces tinted sometimes by emotions felt in response to a specific place or event, sometimes marked by poetry, imagination, or humor that may be tender or ironic.
The exhibition, as its name implies, intentionally exploits the image of a heart that, overused as it is, unquestionably remains a universal symbol of attraction, affection, and love.
Beyond the interaction between Iranian and Quebecois culture, the goal of this unique exhibition is also to create a space that invites visitors to indulge in the game of creating a collective work on the large canvas of Montreal, I Love You.
