Le Salon  Gabriela Avila-Yiptong (Ottawa) Florence Yee (Toronto)
15 Sep 2018 to 14 Oct 2018

In the mid-17th century the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture, founded by the [French] King’s painters and sculptors, established a genre hierarchy dominated by painting. In 2015, after the investiture of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, his Minister of Canadian Heritage Mélanie Joly made “the digital” her hobbyhorse: the dissemination of Canadian content on digital platforms, and the development of the digital arts industry. Compelled by evolution and progress, how can painting - one the of oldest mediums - be inserted into a contemporary art discourse in the digital era? Artists Gabriela Avila-Yiptong and Florence Yee delve into this question further.
