MODERNIST DOCUMENT, Mois de la Photo Montreal

 big blue Station. Inkjet prints.

At stake, as with earlier cultural configurations, is the question of how art can best contribute to constructing livable realities, and conducting social critique. In their approach to the photographic document, Moyra Davey, Stan Douglas, Charles Gagnon, Petra Mueller, and Catherine Opie explore the material and perceptual limits of media while engaging representational modalities constituting the differentiated and conflicting social spaces of the city, domestic interior and nature.
— Nancy Shaw, guest curator
