The Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal features the largest exhibition of the Canadian artist Rebecca Belmore which aims to be a major overview of the past 30 years. The show includes sculptures, installations, photography and videos, which explore issues such as the problematic relationships with territory, women’s lives, historic events and ongoing violence against Indigenous peoples.
Rebecca Belmore started working as a performance artist in the late 1980s and since ever her practice is mainly devoted to climate change, access to water, land use, homelessness, and human migration and displacement. In Facing the Monumental, the artist presents a collection of visceral images exploring the pressing issues of our time.
