Lo que sabíamos pero no pudimos decir
What we all knew but couldn’t articulate

September 10 to October 19, 2018
What we all knew but couldn’t articulate
What we all knew but couldn’t articulate is an exhibition that revolves around a common sense of closeness and the desire to connect, while also acknowledging the barriers that often stand in the way of attaining that connection. This exhibition is the result of a year-long international curatorial internship between the FOFA Gallery and SOMA México, which aimed to foster cultural exchange between Mexico City and Montréal. After various encounters and meetings with contemporary artists in Mexico City, curator Ellen Belshaw developed the exhibition’s premise in Montréal. The five selected artists—Marcela Armas, Daniel Monroy Cuevas, Lorena Mal, Armando Rosales, and Rogelio Sosa—have all created works that actively engage viewers in the attempt to interpret connection—or a lack thereof—through personal, political and sensorial means.

Fall Fell Felt
Anna Hawkins

November 5 to December 14, 2018
Fall Fell Felt
Fall Fell Felt begins from an examination of “fail” videos, a popular genre where physical blunders and bloopers are caught on camera and disseminated online. Focusing on an extremely prevalent sub-genre, so-called “girl fails,” Anna Hawkins’s project tests the ability of these images to elicit empathy, while considering the ways that women’s bodies been used throughout the history of moving images to provoke physical and visceral responses from viewers.
