Camp Fires: the Queer Baroque of Léopold L. Foulem, Paul Mathieu and Richard Milette

This provocative exhibition, featuring explicit themes, brings together 60 works by three internationally renowned ceramic artists, all with a deep attachment to Montreal, whether by birth or by choice. United by their common experience and a critical discourse on gay identity, they share a post-modern predilection for humour, appropriation and pastiche as well as social and cultural criticism. For more than 30 years, they have explored the theme of ”camp,” an artistic sensibility that emerged in the 20th century alongside queer exuberance.

Curated by Robin Metcalfe. Organized by the Gardiner Museum, Toronto. This project is supported by the Museum Assistance Program at Canadian Heritage.
