On September 19, renowned curators Joyce Yahouda and Maude Arsenault launched Mobilità, a contemporary art event presented by Genesis Motors Canada.

Mobilità is about being alive as a form of movement and seizing the opportunity as it comes. Mobilità is a striking encounter between an up-and-coming car and an open-minded, fluid selection of contemporary art reflecting people, places, shapes and ideas.

The event featured close to thirty artworks, including photography, video, and sculpture, by Canadian and international artists Max Abadian, Maude Arsenault, Jacques Bilodeau, Annie Briard, David Ellingsen, Moridja Kitenge Banza, Nicolas Mavrikakis, François Ollivier, Le Pigeon, Alana Riley, Stephen Schofield, Daniel Shipp, Victor Vargas Villafuerte, Louise Viger, Paul Wong and Lee Yanor.

“Mobilità is movement, the capacity to move; it is mobility. We live in a mobile era, undoubtedly more than ever before in the history of non-nomadic cultures.

If instability and the absence of seemingly immutable material or emotional bonds constitute the fragile face of mobility, the notion is also paired with a number of desirable conditions, such as fluidity, flexibility, adaptability, accessibility, diversity, exchange, freedom and discovery – all of which hold strength. As Lafontaine’s reed that merely bends when the winds blow wild.

Mobilità is about having seized the opportunity as it passed, one that allowed for the meeting of two curators who produced an open-minded, fluid selection of  works of contemporary art by Canadian and international artists.

Movement in these works is temporal; it traverses history or intervenes in the space-time continuum of a landscape; it is physical, visible or intensely contained; it is lyrical and suggested; it is expressed through song and dance; it is documented; it is conveyed by ideas or empathy; it is shaped in clay and stilled behind a lens.

Mobilità is being alive.”
