Pussylluminati | MissMe x Nastia Cloutier-Ignatiev

August 24, 2017

Galerie C.O.A is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition titled Pussylluminati, on display from September 7th to October 7th, 2017.

Street artist, vandal, activist, and masked speaker MissMe presents her first exhibition at Galerie C.O.A this September, kicking off the Montreal art gallery’s 2017-2018 programme.

 In November of 2016, MissMe begins a relational artistic experiment inspired by her Pussylluminati project. She solicits participants for a female genitalia photo shoot and casts subjects of varying origins and contrasting life experiences. MissMe stages both artistic shots of pubes, and stripped portraits of vulvas, shot by emerging photographer Nastia Cloutier-Ignatiev. The photo shoot becomes the setting for exchange, creativity, and experimentation. Although the photographs document the project, the participating women's testimonials - their words - are its articulating force. The Pussylluminati exhibition, accompanied by a catalogue, presents MissMe’s plastic interventions onto her project, in which she combines photography, painting, and collage.

 The vernissage will take place at the gallery on Thursday, September 7th, from 5 PM to 9 PM, and the eponymous catalogue will be released on the same occasion.

Our vernissage is generously sponsored by Les Subversifs Microdistillery with their artisanal Piger Henricus Gin, and Brasserie Les 2 Frères Brewery, with their Charles-Henri and Hickson craft beers.
