Born in Germany, artist Angela Grauerholz has been living in Montreal since the mid-1970s. She has long been interested in feminism, conceptual art, and a range of theoretical perspectives on photography, influences that have shaped her art over the last 25 years. The Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography is mounting a major exhibition comprised of some 40 works created over the course of her career. Presented by Pratt & Whitney Canada at the NGC, Angela Grauerholz: The inexhaustible image … épuiser l’image pays tribute to this extraordinary artist, who received the Prix Paul-Émile-Borduas – the highest distinction in the visual arts in Quebec – in 2006 for her exceptional contribution to the visual arts. It is the artist’s first solo exhibition at the NGC. To find out more about the exhibition, click on http://cmcp.gallery.ca/grauerholz.
