Rebecca Belmore

Visual arts and design
Downtown - Quartier des spectacles

A major overview of the past 30 years of her work, the exhibition include sculptures, installations, photography and videos, some of which are based on performances.

With boundless beauty, sensitivity and resilience, her work explores our problematic relationships with territory, women’s lives, historic events and ongoing violence against Indigenous peoples.

One of Canada’s most celebrated and important contemporary artists, Rebecca Belmore started working as a performance artist in the late 1980s. The immediacy and presence of that discipline continue to influence her diverse practice. Themes in her work include conflicts and issues related 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.
