Local artist exhibits in Montreal
Miami–based artist Jillian Mayer is participating in the upcoming La Biennale de Montréal (BNLMTL 2014). The newly revitalized biennial will be on view at the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal and at cultural venues throughout the city from Oct. 22, 2014 through Jan. 4, 2015. Titled “L'avenir” (Looking Forward), the exhibition will examine how contemporary artists respond to the question of "what is to come." Mayer will present a project that tackles the ethos of the camera-phone and social media universe while considering the impact of technology on social interaction and image-making. bnlmtl.org.
