The Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, SBC Gallery of Contemporary Art and VOX, centre de l’image contemporaine will host a major event entitled Putting Rehearsals to the Test, accompanied by a film program presented at the Cinémathèque québécoise and at VOX. The three curators of the exhibition, Sabeth Buchmann, Ilse Lafer, and Constanze Ruhm, bring together over fifty international artists who address a set of positions and strategies in contemporary art that consider rehearsal as both subject and practice. While the subject of “rehearsal” is popular in film and theater, as well as in the fine arts, it has been scarcely considered in historical and contemporary art discourses. It is with this in mind that the exhibition Putting Rehearsals to the Test investigates the role and function of the notion of “rehearsal,” understood as a methodology, a modus operandi, a medium, a site of representation and reflection for artistic production processes.
