WHAT HAPPENS WHEN NOTHING HAPPENS is an exhibition of works by Canadian and Swedish artists developed by Concordia graduates Véronique Malo and Emily Mennerdahl (Independant Study Group) while in residency in Valand, Sweden.

The exhibition presents a selection of artists’ works that reveal what happens before, during or after projects: unedited and unrealised ideas, sketches, texts, sounds, scribbles, drawings, trials and failures  —pendant explorations, transitory ideas and ephemeral works that together form the creative process.

The artists included in the exhibition are:
Chantal Durand, Anna Jane McIntyre, Tamara Henderson and Jon Knowles, Jacinthe Lessard, Sean Montgomery and Eric Simon, Diane Morin, Taien Ng-Chan, Lina Persson, Meghan Price, Jerry Ropson, Karen Elaine Spencer and Christin Wahlström.

Labouring the Land is a collaborative project by emerging artists Michelle Lacombe and Marie-Michelle Deschamps. Exploring the relationship between drawing and labour and landscape, their compelling installation in the FOFA Gallery vitrines herald Labour Day and the return to school.

Gallery Hours: Monday to Friday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Location:
