Galerie Hugues Charbonneau is inaugurating its first virtual programming with the group exhibition Une touche humaine / A Human Touch which brings together the artists Shuvinai Ashoona, Chloë Lum & Yannick Desranleau, Manuel Mathieu, Rajni Perera and Cindy Phenix. The aim of this online experimental space is to open up the gallery’s activities and to diversify its regular program thanks to projects that make other artistic and curatorial projects possible.
The exhibition Une touche humaine / A Human Touch is a gesture of empathy. In this historical moment of social distancing and confinement, it explores our deep longing for community and our inclination to always build new forms of sociability.
The works gathered here evoke encounters and connections—real or fantasized—between humans, but also with other living beings and inanimate objects. Through their pronounced touches, brush strokes and textures they recall the creative actions and presence of the artists. The works are interwoven with one another through the hope for a different, yet united tomorrow.
