About

Dissections is a series of lectures and round table events presented as part of DHC/ART’s public programming and designed to encourage interdisciplinary discussions on contemporary art.

For the upcoming edition, we invite you to a lecture by art historian Isabelle Loring Wallace, who will respond to Wim Delvoye, the current exhibition at DHC/ART. Loring Wallace will explore recurring themes in Delvoye’s practice, such as transgression, religion, and scatology, as well as the elastic concept of ‘the Gothic’. The lecture will last one hour and be followed by a question period.

Dissections: Wim Delvoye will take place in the Maxwell-Cummings auditorium at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (1379 Sherbrooke Street West).

Free admission

Please note the lecture will be delivered in English and that the event will be filmed and photographed for our archives.

Wim Delvoye runs until March 19, 2017.
