Arnaud L. Vidricaire | Solo exhibition

Born in 2000 in Quebec City (Canada), Arnaud L. Vidricaire lives and works in Montreal. His artistic practice takes the form of ambitious spatial installations, through which he tells the story of his inner turmoil. Emotional, non-conscious creations, his works begin with instinctive tracings on the surface of his graphic tablet. He saturates the screen with various tangles of lines, most of which he ultimately discards, retaining only the strongest compositions. ...

CARVANAL | France Trudel & Moe Piuze

CARNAVAL, an exhibition featuring the works of France Trudel and Moe Piuze, conveys the most colourful of the two artists’ creations. The joyful arrangements follow one another, on canvas or on wood, to the benefit of two environments that are indeed singular, but common in one way: their constant search for the perfect juxtaposition. ...

Duo | Vinna Begin & Benoit Blondeau

For those who don’t know yet, the acronym “C.O.A.” honours a vision we have been clinging to since the opening of the gallery: Créateurs d’Œuvres Atypiques (Creators of Atypical Work). It’s a gamble that we take again and again, one exhibition after another. The next one is no exception to the rule. So mark your calendars! On March 16th, Vinna Bégin and Benoit Blondeau’s duo exhibition starts. ...

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. ...

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. ...

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.

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.

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...
