The next show at Concordia's Leonard and Bina Ellen Art Gallery will be a collaboration with another Montreal institution.
Between Body and Soul is a two-venue exhibition with the Lianne and Danny Taran Gallery of the Saidye Bronfman Centre for the Arts, and will run from October 30 to December 18.
Sixteen Canadian artists are represented in a variety of media, including installations and photography. They are linked by a concern with the relationship between the physical and psychic, an exploration of the energy that connects body and soul.
The artists are Magdalen Celestino, Cathy Daley, Aganetha Dyck, Robert Flack, Karilee Fuglem, Angela Grauerholz, Nicholas Hooper, Spring Hurlbut, Manon Labrecque, Myriam Laplante, David Moore, Sylvia Safdie, Barbara Steinman, Sarah Stevenson, Max Streicher and Tim Whiten.
The curator of the gallery at the Saidye Bronfman Centre is David Liss, a graduate of Concordia's Faculty of Fine Arts. He co-curated the show with the Ellen Gallery's director, Karen Antaki.
The Ellen Gallery is on the ground floor of the J.W. McConnell Building, 1400 de Maisonneuve Blvd. W., and the Saidye Bronfman Centre is at 5170 Côte-Ste-Catherine Road.
At the vernissage, scheduled for October 29, from 6 to 10 p.m., a shuttle bus will take patrons between the two galleries. - BB
