Artist Talk & Reception: Julian Montague

Recent Fictions
Julian Montague
Exhibit: July 3-July 30
Artist Talk and Reception July 12 6pm-8pm

 

Recent Fictions is an exhibition that centers on Montague’s conceptual faux books, posters and other ephemera. This approach to art making has been part of his practice for the last several years. Much of the material in the exhibit is related to a fictional 1970s art institution called “The Thorold Gallery.” The posters depict a wide range of artists, artwork, exhibitions, and performances, all invented by Montague. The pieces invite the viewer to imagine exhibitions, happenings, and entire bodies of work into being. Aesthetically, this body of work draws on the visual conventions of mid-century European graphic design. The conceptual frame of the fictional gallery creates a space in which Montague can experiment with a wide range of ideas and modes of art making that would normally be difficult to fit into one body of work.
