A Special evening with Donigan Cumming

A Special evening with Donigan Cumming

Donigan Cumming’s work broaches subjects such as the body, truth and fiction, the taboos of representation, as well as social commitment. His is a disturbing body of work. For years, it has confronted its viewers with marginal, eccentric and voluble people whose lives unfold through photographs, films and paintings which document while also staging an intimacy in the form of a paradox, at once endearing and obscene.

Besides numerous exhibitions of his works in America and Europe—among which the memorable 1994 Pretty Ribbons at the Rencontres d’Arles photography festival, Donigan Cumming has had retrospectives organised by the Pacific Film Archive (Berkeley, USA) and Visions du Réel documentary film festival (Switzerland). This year, the artist was a finalist for the prestigious Scotiabank Photography Award.

The Centre Culturel Canadien presents Donigan Cumming’s three latest video works (among the 25 he has shot since 1995) in original versions subtitled in French.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the artist conducted by film historian and critic Jean Perret.
