Authors : Marie Fraser, Moukhtar Kocache (Director of Visual and Media Arts at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council), Marie-Josée Lafortune. Interviews with the artists in exhibition : Carl Bouchard & Martin Dufrasne, Rachel Echenberg, Raphaëlle de Groot, Massimo Guerrera, Devora Neumark. This catalogue accompanies the “Artists’ Gestures” exhibition organized by OPTICA, a contemporary art center, which was presented in Montreal from October 7th to 14th 2001 in conjunction with the “Saison du Québec à New York”.
Bringing together texts and interviews with artists in the exhibition, this publication furthers a reflection on the nature of gesture, interrogating its mobility, fragility, transience and motion toward the world. From the self to the other, the gesture travels between two spaces, from the private to the social.
