> DESCRIPTION

Hapax Legomena gathers the work of ten artists of the same generation together for the first time in Canada. The exhibition draws its starting point from the process and narrative proposed by the artist and theoretician Hollis Frampton in his most celebrated film Hapax Legomena 1: (nostalgia). In the film, Frampton proposes a re-reading of his own work within an analytical framework that mixes reminiscences, scripted narration and iconographic exercises. Similarly, this exhibition will be inscribed within the continuity of a theoretical and practical discussion initiated in 2006 amongst the curators and a constellation of artist peers. Their collaborations to date have taken the form of exhibitions, publications, conferences and performances. This exhibition will gather fragments of these past collaborations, traces and souvenirs of past exhibitions along with new productions. Hapax Legomena — designating a form occurring only once — will trace the index of this continued collaboration, balancing between past history and future possibilities.
