Description - DHC / LIBRE ART by Cheryl Sim
DHC/ART LIBRE tells the story of a contemporary art foundation unlike any other. Situated in the cosmopolitan city of Montreal, DHC/ART - as well as this publication - is dedicated to bringing impactful experiences with contemporary art to the public with a mission of accessibility on multiple levels. The critically-acclaimed program includes major artists from around the world, like Christian Marclay, Joan Jonas and Yinka Shonibare MBE.
The publication chronicles the evolution of DHC/ART - since its launch in 2007 by Phoebe Greenberg - and through its story provides a platform for critical essays that open up larger questions about the potential for innovative institutional models to develop contemporary art audiences for the future. Amongst the contributors are Sarah Thornton and Jan Verwoert. The DHC/ART Education department provides an account of their critical pedagogy while the book is rounded out with a questionnaire on the use-value of Installation View photography with contributions from Simon Starling, Barbara Clausen, JiaJia Fei, Brian Droitcour, Vincent Bonin and Richard-Max Tremblay.
