Geneviève Moisan with François and Didier Morelli in Fait main / Hand Made at the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Québec

JUNE 14, 2018 TO SEPTEMBER 3, 2018

Handicrafts, know-how and folklore come to the fore in contemporary art in this exhibition that dismantles the principles of hierarchy in art. Fait main / Hand Made presents these practices by exploring not only popular art, raw art and Pop Surrealism but also technology. More than 40 Canadian artists from Vancouver to Halifax have been assembled in this sweeping exhibition. Fait main / Hand Made promises a brilliant overview of a significant segment of contemporary output in Canada.

The exhibition will encompass a broad range of practices, from wood carving to quilts, not to mention ceramics and embroidery. It includes a chair sculpted from newspaper, objects covered in knitting, textile videos and 3D printing.  The craft-based processes used will highlight the mastery of matter. The event ultimately examines the transformation of work, politics, labour and leisure.
