Work by two of our represented artists, Brendan Tang and Clint Neufeld is currently on display as part of a large exhibition Fait Main/Hand Made at the Musee national des beaux-arts du Quebec, QC (June 14-September 3, 2018). More than 40 Canadian artists are included in this exhibition which acts as a sweeping overview of contemporary output in Canada.
“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.” – MNBAQ website

“I’ve always been someone who’s worked with my hands, whether it’s been fixing machinery on the family farm or doing renovations. So I always used materials and always felt that materials weren’t really neutral. They had a history and a context.”
