Major new exhibition at Dundee University will welcome some of Canada’s most exciting artistic talent

Some of Canada’s most exciting artistic talent is to be showcased as part of a major new exhibition at the University of Dundee.

Ambiguous Becoming: Artists’ Moving Image from Canada, focuses on the human body and how it interacts with themes from throughout the modern world.

Hosted in the University’s Cooper Gallery as part of a collaboration with Montreal’s Momenta art biennale, the exhibition opens on January 24.

Peter Amoore, curatorial assistant, said: “This exhibition brings together a broad spectrum of artists and collaborations from across Canada. Touching on themes such as colonialism, patriarchy, capitalism, and witnessing how these interact with the human form has resulted in some captivating pieces of work.

“The exhibits coming to Dundee are among the highlights of this year’s Momenta Biennale de l’image, one of North America’s most prominent arts events. Hosting them here is a huge honour and a fantastic opportunity for the Scottish public to witness some of the world’s most daring visual artists.”

Ambiguous Becoming: Artist’s Moving Image from Canada is the first of several exhibitions to be hosted by the Cooper Gallery this year, with film theorists Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen and The Ignorant Art School also scheduled to display their work.

The exhibition runs until February 22 in the Cooper Gallery within Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design’s Matthew Building, Perth Road. Entry is free.
