Quests | Valérie Gobeil

Quest, each piece Valérie Gobeil is one. She goes on a search without necessarily knowing where it will take her exactly. In a rigorous approach while being curious, she tries to explore the pictorial possibilities of fiber. ...

« Puberté / Puberty » | Laurence Philomène

The exhibition “Puberté / Puberty” echoes the book of the same title by Laurence Philomène, a Montreal-based non-binary artist who creates colourful photographs inspired by their experiences as a transgender person with a chronic illness. “Puberté / Puberty” is based on a self-portrait work exploring the process of trans-identification. ...

Foire en art actuel de Québec | 2022

C.O.A participates in the Foire en art actuel de Québec (Quebec Contemporary Art Fair) 

For its eighth edition, the Foire en art actuel de Québec (FAAQ) will hold a booth presenting seven AGAC member galleries from Montreal and Quebec City, in a more traditional deployment. Indeed, as in previous editions, each of the participating galleries will have its own booth to introduce you to their represented artists. C.O.A will be part of the FAAQ and you will be able to discover new works by Valérie Gobeil, Karine Locatelli, Éric Nado, Moe Piuze and Ooloosie Saila. ...

Double solo | Yannick Chayer & Erkut Terliksiz

A double solo exhibition splits the gallery into two distinct, yet not contradictory, worlds. When we first encounter the work of Montreal artist Yannick Chayer (Quebec, Canada), we’re confronted with abstract forms that coexist with the figurative in scenes that are both free and pictorial. Chayer is interested in experimental music and his art, similarly, is casual and does not rely on any pre-established narrative. ...

Instinctuel | Group Exhibition

Instinctuel | Group Exhibition

With “Instinctuel,” C.O.A presents an exhibition free of all constraints, where seven local and international artists communicate their desire to reveal their own essence. Through a very basic palette, the exhibition emphasizes the brutality in the treatment of the subject rather than the complexity of the work. A weave of superimpositions, lines, colours and multiple materials share the walls of the gallery, where the artists are presented in turn. ...

Alexandra Levasseur | Solo exhibition

Alexandra Levasseur’s plastic practice proposes two dissimilar but not contradictory readings. A multidisciplinary artist, she paints, sculpts, and animates driven by a deep interest in, on the one hand, a scientific approach to the relationship between humankind and nature, and, on the other, the mythological, even mystical interpretation that one can draw from it. The works that make up this exhibition entitled “Tourner autour du soleil” (Circling the Sun) gravitate between these two worlds, one scientific and the other spiritual. ...

Karine Locatelli | solo exhibition

Karine Locatelli is an artist from Lévis (Québec, Canada). She is known for her mastery of the line, the medium she has chosen to represent the landscapes that surround her or that she encounters on her travels. But it’s a question of sensitive experience, since she is not concerned with the recreation of a subject, but rather with testifying to her experience of the territory. ...

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

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

The exhibition entitled Peintures (Paintings) by Montreal artist Valérie Gobeil offers a testimony of her latest research on the pictorial potential of textiles and fibre. She reflects on the fibre as one would think about paint. ...

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.
