LAND InSIGHTS and the MONTREAL FIRST PEOPLES FESTIVAL present
July 14 to September 3, 2016
Presented by LAND InSIGHTS in the context of the MONTREAL FIRST PEOPLES FESTIVAL, The Guild is proud to present PULPE FICTION, the latest exhibition by artist SYLVAIN RIVARD. The artworks by this multidisciplinary French Canadian and Abenaki artist depict a world nearer to First Nations’ identity than to that of the Québécois. The main part of his work draws a portrait of contemporary ethnographic art which lies beyond cultural hybridity. Through a dozen creations, PULPE FICTION proposes a reinterpretation of the Abenaki nation’s mythical and legendary culture.
