Artist News & Events
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. ...
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.
For the first time, the Galerie C.O.A is hosting a solo exhibition of Hélène Cenedese, an artist from Montreal. The exhibition will occur from march 15th to april 21st and spotlights her last drawings and paintings, plastic testimonies of a daily routine comon to all.
