The MNBAQ is joining forces for the second time with Manif d’art by presenting the collective exhibition of the Québec City Biennial. Guest curator Jonathan Watkins, Director of the Ikon Gallery in Birmingham, England, has achieved distinction at several international events in Turin, Sydney, Milan and Venice, but also in Guangzhou, China. The exhibition features works by internationally renowned artists from at home and abroad who explore the theme chosen by Watkins, inspired by the words of Leonard Cohen: We are so small between the stars, so large against the sky.*

Their works call into question our relationships with the environment, reflect the exploration of the natural phenomena around us, and produce aesthetic experiences comparable to the wonder that nature evokes. The eclectic works offer a sweeping panorama of singular perspectives.
