It is at the crossroads of personal history and collective memory that Myriam Jacob-Allard’s work lingers. These take form in the exhibition around two narratives: a popular song and a family story. The title of the exhibition and the publication, T’envoler, is borrowed from a country song, a musical genre with a particular resonance for the artist’s family.
D'un discours qui ne serait pas du semblant / Actors, Networks, Theories
Author: Vincent Bonin
In collaboration with Leonard and Bina Ellen Gallery
In D'un discours qui ne serait pas du semblant / Actors, Networks, Theories, Vincent Bonin explores the notion of deferred receptions of theories and art through language, context and translations. The book explores the gap between the publication of a text in one language and that of its translation, or between the inaugural presentation of an artwork in one context and its subsequent display.

For Syrians on the run escaping civil war, the mundane act of sending a text message proves to be a crucial line of connection with those left behind, a missive that confirms the survival or death of their loved ones.
In Texting Syria, photographer Liam Maloney examines how, along the journey refugees make from Syria to Lebanon and then Canada, mobile technology supports their struggles, transmitting strength and resistance. Gathered here are portraits, excerpts from text message conversations and images from popular culture that highlight intimate parallel narratives beyond the images disseminated in the media.
Liam Maloney is the recipient of the Dazibao award conferred during the 2015 Mois de la Photo à Montréal.
