Artist statement:
I believe my work references and, at times, wrestles with the after-burn of painting’s past, art history with a capital “A.” It also works to carve out a space for itself in current dialogues and continues to look ahead at painting’s potential. So my preoccupying question is, “Where do we go from here?” -Melanie Authier (2015)

This exhibition is co-produced and circulated by the Thames Art Gallery. In collaboration with the Ottawa Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Guelph, Galerie de I’UQAM, MSVU Art Gallery and Musée régional de Rimouski.
