Matter of Place
Each year, the annual undergraduate exhibition aims to represent the diverse art practices and research interests occurring within the Faculty of Fine Arts. Collaborative at its core, this interdisciplinary initiative culminates in an exhibition, publication, and performance event, and combines the efforts of many students, staff, and faculty members. This year’s exhibition title reflects the artists’ engagement with current, personal themes and the artistic materials and processes that bring their artworks into being. Thoughtful and provocative, Matter of Place presents relevant discussions happening in contemporary art and the world in which we live.

Matter of Place

Mer paraguayenne / Paraguayan Sea

Mer paraguayenne / Paraguayan Sea
Mer paraguayenne/Paraguayan Sea is a text intervention into public space by Montreal visual artist Andrew Forster in collaboration with the Montreal poet Erín Moure. Installed outdoors, the wide yellow band wraps around the ground floor of Concordia University’s EV (Engineering and Visual Arts) Building, facing Ste-Catherine Street and McKay Street in downtown Montreal. This graphic and typographic artwork relays Moure’s poetic text, and moves between three languages (French, English and Guaraní) to create one meaning—an amalgam of language and meaning reflective of the creative ‘mix’ that is Montreal's urban hybridity.
