This was the inaugural exhibition of Paul And Karen’s new studio building in Montréal’s Mile-Ex neighbourhood. It was curated by Donald Goodes, and groups together a selection of flat works and sculptures in thematic groupings: Asserting Self; Creating Dialectic; Pointing and Transforming; Protected Sensations & Exposed Ideas; Art from Nothing; Cheeky Sense of Humour. The groupings are meant to propose a dialogue between the works of this artist couple. The works span many years of the artists’ production.
The exhibition was planned just as the Covid-19 lockdown hit Montréal. The artists organized a protocol so that single viewers could visit the show following public health guidelines.
