A new publication from Montreal's very own La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse has made its way to the store! Entitled Féminismes Électriques and published in collaboration with les éditions du remue-ménage and Art Metropole, this bilingual book covers the last decade of exhibitions and performances programmed by one of the oldest artist-run centers in Quebec.
It comes with a beautiful artist poster by G.B. Jones, and it features an insightful interview with store-favorite Chris Kraus - who will be coming to Librairie D+Q October 11th to launch her brand new novel! In this conversation with Canadian-born artist Onya Hogan-Finlay, Kraus discusses the history of avant-garde publishing house Semiotext(e), translations, mistranslations, blogging, touring and promoting the female 'I.'
D+Q artist Amy Lockhart is featured in this publication too, with this shot of her exhibition Give Up the Ghost, which I looved. Amy, Montreal misses you!
And look, up in the right corner, there's a picture of artist, workshop teacher and store-friend Leyla Majeri in there! Speaking of Leyla, she will be with us for a very exciting event with a great gang of amazing artists this fall, more on that soon!
