Be present in the internal studio (Être présent dans l'atelier intérieur)
Italian-born Montreal artist Massimo Guerrera uses bodies, architecture and digestion to speak of our human exchanges and connections. His work in performance, sculpture, drawing and painting provokes and evokes continually transforming relationships. Winner of the important Ozias-Leduc 2001 prize for visual artists in Quebec and finalist in the Sobey Art Award in 2004, Massimo Guerrera has been identified as one of the five Canadian artists to watch by Canadian Art magazine. His work has been presented by museums, galleries and artist-run centres nationally and internationally.
In 1998 he was invited by the contemporary art magazines Parachute and Beaux-Arts to present his installation Siège social temporaire in Paris; in 2000 he participated in the Biennale de Montréal; in 2002 he had a solo exhibition at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Quebec and two years later his work was exhibited at the Contemporary Art Gallery of Vancouver, at White Columns in New York and at the Centre Contemporain de la Ville de Bordeaux in France.
In the past few years his work has been collected by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the National Gallery of Quebec and numerous private and corporate collections in Canada and Europe.
Massimo Guerrera’s work is represented in Montreal by Joyce Yahouda Gallery.
