Lieux de rencontre | Group exhibition

Whether it is the simple drawing of a line, a play of texture or a dialogue between the full and the empty, the work of art suggests a sensory experience. Five artists (from Canada, the United States and Benin) attempt to propose a connection: art as a vehicle of the quest for meaning, which, if the viewer pauses, becomes the scene of an encounter. ...

Dialogue | Ooloosie Saila & Josiane Lanthier

Dialogue | Ooloosie Saila & Josiane Lanthier

For C.O.A, this exhibition marks an opportunity to bring together two favourites: two emerging artists in their early thirties who paint the territories that surround them. Although the landscapes that inspire them differ, Ooloosie Saila (Canadian Inuit artist from Kinngait - Cape Dorset) and Josiane Lanthier (Montreal painter expatriated in Baie-Saint-Paul) share a common vision. Through their works, they both choose to translate an emotion, the trace of a visual feeling, rather than a photographic representation of forms. ...

Out 2021 | Group exhibition

Throughout this exhibition, C.O.A. advocates for awareness: nine artists take over the walls of the gallery, five of whom have an intellectual disability and/or an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Because there is no longer any question of drawing a distinction between these creators, the focus isn’t on the marginal status of some. Whether paintings or sculptures, only the aesthetic qualities and intrinsic properties of each work are recognized. ...

France Trudel | Solo exhibition

France Trudel | Solo exhibition

When she paints, the artist discovers. She materializes her inspiration; the idea only appears as she creates her works, as if she was following a compass. There are two entrances: the inside and the outside, a sort of match between the intimate and the use of different materials (paint, collage, pencils, adhesive tape, etc.). For France Trudel, the artistic experience constitutes an ultimate space of freedom. ...

Réinterprétation | Group show

To conclude the year 2020, C.O.A presents a new exhibition featuring the work of local and international artists. In the global context - as we have so often heard - the need to reinvent ourselves has become a byword. Starting December 5th, ten artists will come together around this imperative: the need to reinterpret their reality. ...

Valérie Gobeil | Solo show

Moe Piuze | Solo exhibition

Human silhouettes whose lines are sometimes curved, sometimes brittle, Moe Piuze’s sculptures tell us a story. The artist digs into his daily life, past or present, different materials from which he creates his works. Pieces of wood from another era, old clothes, and photographs, these collected objects testify to his relationship with the territories he may have occupied or crossed. For this exhibition, he merges two spaces: the domestic and the intimate. These two prerogatives meet around a central theme, that of the “house-body”. ...

Corps primaires | Group show

Bringing together the work of seven artists (from Slovenia, Australia, Spain and the United States), this group exhibition challenges the representation of the idealized human body. All ideas of beauty, credibility and proportion are erased in favour of a non-realistic stylization of the latter.

Isaac Cordal, the artist of minature

Isaac Cordal, like every street artist, produces denunciatory social art. The recurring figurines in his creations are a metaphor for the contemporary human condition. Their tiny size reflects the crushing burden borne by everyone in the face of scourges such as class struggle, oligarchy, global warming or the misery we witness on every street corner. ...

Kottie Paloma | Online show

Galerie C.O.A is pleased to present a virtual exhibition by Kottie Paloma entitled “Killing Time Like a Stray Dog.” Born in 1974, the artist lives and works in Los Angeles, USA. The current pandemic context pushes him to evaluate his past artistic practice, and to reflect upon his own reality. The works he selects are inhabited with the notions of solitude and confinement; truths that are highly contextual nowadays and that concern us all.

Interview | Danny Gretscher by Artmerit

"Can you tell me a little about yourself, your background, and when you first started working full-time as an artist? - My spaceship landed a while ago on planet earth. I was surprised how beautiful it is here on earth, so I decided to stay. I was given a magic pill to wish what I want to be and I decided to become an artist. Et voilà, here I am and that’s what I do."

Josiane Lanthier | Solo show

The Galerie C.O.A is delighted to present the first solo exhibit of emerging artist Josiane Lanthier. This exhibit spotlights her singular vision, that of a play on color, texture, luminosity, and overlapping layers, which allows her to manipulate one’s perception and to give her work another dimension.

Out | Group show

In 2020, Galerie C.O.A sets aside the established frameworks and opens its doors to the marginal art of the outsiders. At a time when outsider art is invading the most emblematic museums, and in reaction to a society where the image is systematically standardized, the floor is given to singular artists. Six of them take over the gallery walls – including four with intellectual disabilities – from Quebec, France, Belgium, Denmark and the United States.

Sylvain Bouthillette | Online exhibition

Sylvain Bouthillette, born in 1963, lives and works in Montreal. A multidisciplinary artist, his work balances between music, dance, installation, sculpture, painting and photography. Whatever the medium, his works tend to demonstrate that ridicule, impermanence, confusion, instability ambiguity, uncertainty, and embarrassment are all forms of liberation if we stop believing that life is something stable and definable...
