Canadian University Galleries – UQAM

The Gallerie UQAM (Gallery of the University of Quebec at Montreal) has held celebrated exhibitions of darling artists like Douglas Gordon, as well as Canadian art darlings Janet Cardiff with George Bures Miller, and David Altmejd.

Current exhibition at UQAM highlighting work by Viennese artist Erwin Wurm entitled Désespéré/Desperate, that take a critical but playful look at our desire to fit into the world around us. Irreverent, openly incorrect and gifted with a cutting wit, this Viennese artist questions the validity of our behaviour by breaking down the sociocultural norms to which we conform.
