EGREGORE EXHIBITION AT YVES LAROCHE GALLERIE D'ART
October 30 2014 - Dec 20 2014
Opening Night: October 30 2014 5:00pm - 9:00pm
A collective consciousness, a result of powerful emotional by desires. This is Égrégore.First introduced by Pierre Mabille, the term was reappropriated by the surrealists who charged it with strong subversive potential. French Canadian painter and poet, Claude Gauvreau then expanded upon the work of Mabille, advocating obedience to our deepest corporal needs as a means towards Égrégore. Reincarnated once more, this exhibition marks the largest group show ever hosted by Yves Laroche. Égrégore will run for the entire Fall/Winter season at Yves Laroche and is comprised of new works by a roster of lowbrow & pop surrealism’s most celebrated artists - Yves Laroche’s personal favourites.This show is a reflection of how powerful the sum of various parts can be: a concept symbolic of this multi-faceted gallery.
