Galerie C.O.A. in Montreal is opening a new group exhibition titled New Classics featuring works by 11 international artists. Curated by Sasha Bogojev, the presentation will include works by selected artists whose practice revolves around utilizing the visual languages, atmospheres, aesthetics, or other elements of renowned artistic movements or individual masters. The featured artists cleverly play with the notion and appearance of what is widely considered “the classics.” Borrowing (de)construction methods of Cubism or Expressionism; creating the elegant atmosphere of old masters’ masterpieces; reinventing the formats of the classical portrait; or depicting the new, contemporary motifs using historically relevant visual languages, these artists produce “new classics.”
