Vernissage, Tuesday, February 10, 6 p.m.–8:30 p.m., in the artists’ presence

Curator : Catherine Bédard

A stone’s throw from the Musée Rodin, the Canadian Cultural Centre will be presenting an exhibition entirely devoted to one of the most famous French sculptors, and his monument The Burghers of Calais (1885) in particular.

Called The Burghers of Vancouver, the exhibition has been put together by Adad Hannah, a Vancouver photographer and video artist, and Quebec filmmaker Denys Arcand. At its heart is a new video installation that revisits the idea of the urban monument by taking apart and putting back together the sculpted group using actors. The play recounts the story of the six actors commissioned by a mysterious patron to “act” Rodin’s work in the streets of Vancouver.

The exhibition also features other works by Adad Hannah that are profoundly influenced by Rodin’s sculpture.

In partnership with the Musée Rodin, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Toronto International Film Festival
