"Museums and many other cultural venues remain closed. That doesn't mean you can't have interesting discussions, or view exhibitions and great works by renowned artists in digital form. For this second week of lockdown, we're presenting a series of entertaining online installations, 3D tours, a digital symposium, video art, and a recently published catalog on the dissemination of art in the digital media age."

"Before fakee news, Facebook and filters, the Internet was considered the ultimate democratic space in which everyone could develop their own voice. Galerie Galeriel is committed to this idea. They see themselves as a platform for the production and distribution of digital and artistic works on the Internet. Galerie Galerie has been using the Internet as a space for research, creation and dissemination since 2016 and supports artists who use new technologies in their practice. [...] Galerie Galerie, which sees the Internet as a tool for self-definition and self-expression, presents with Fannie Sosa's "WIG" a practical guide for the inclusion of BIPOC artists and to counter unpaid work hidden under the guise of diversity."

[FRENCH] / Free translation

"Indigenous people are often seen as relics of the past. We are, however, great consumers of pop culture too, and «Kway Internet» is a project that "indigenize" the Web and take ownership of this platform. It is also an opportunity for Kiuna students who are out of their territory to find balance in this world that is with our traditions. This exhibition is an invitation to students to show the contemporary beings that they are and deconstruct the prejudices against us that also reign on the internet. James Luna would be proud of them."

"From June 8 to July 13, 2017, the online gallery Galerie Galerie offers Internet users the opportunity to visit the INSTA exhibition, which features two interactive installations: "Il est faux de croire que tu ne reverras peut-être jamais cette belle poubelle pas du tout instable" by Sarah L'Hérault and "John Frum, les masseuses et autres entreprises" by Mathieu Cardin. These artists were invited by the gallery to "reflect on the occupation of online space" by creating installation art adapted to the specific characteristics of the digital exhibition space."

"INSTA consists of the work of Sarah L'Hérault, Il est faux de croire que tu ne reverras peut-être jamais cette belle poubelle pas du tout instable (2017) and that of Mathieu Cardin, John Frum, les masseuses et autres entreprises (2017). Both recognized as creators of installation art, they reflect here on the occupation of online space. Indeed, with the advent of virtual exhibitions, a question arises as to the immateriality of the Web compared to the materiality of the work of art. Would it be possible to rematerialize the virtual space of the Web by using images and their referents?"

n° 111, 2017, p. 74-77 | B34UD355IN à l’ère du numérique, par Raphaëlle Cormier

[FRENCH] / Free translation

"Inspired by the manifesto In Defense of the Poor Image (e-flux journal, 2009) by the German artist and theorist Hito Steyerl, who campaigns in favor of a poor image, Galerie Galerie suggests an approach to drawing digital dominated by the accidental, the approximate and the frank naivety. Far from the technical prowess that proliferates in the fields of cinema, advertising, architecture and video games, Galerie Galerie is interested in alternative movements, which she describes as amateurisms. For the occasion, the platform brings together the work of six artists: Inès Allard, Mathieu P. Lapierre, Adriana Smith, Alban Loosli, Mégane Voghell and Simon Provencher."

"It is not because we are a digital gallery that we cannot create openings in real life (or AFK - away from keyboard)". Yesterday, it was at Espace POP that took place the third exhibition of Galerie Galerie, dedicated to digital drawing. This new exhibition, entitled B34U D3551N, thus focuses on the practice of digital drawing. The gallery's curators put forward artists with various practices, who explore the genre in several of its forms. "

"Galerie Galerie, an online digital art distribution platform, is presenting its second exhibition, Silicon Vallée, from October 27 to December 18, 20161. The title obviously refers to Silicon Valley, the region of southern San Francisco welcoming close to 6000 high-tech companies, including Google, Facebook, Netflix, etc. The theme raises the sexism shown by this technology industry towards women 2 and opens the reflection on heteronormativity and gender discrimination in the technological and IT environment."

« Galerie Galerie met de l'avant une féminité renouvelée avec sa nouvelle expo Silicon Vallée », par Maryse Boyce

[FRENCH] / Free translation

"Making digital art accessible, especially non-standard practices, is the heart of Galerie Galerie's mission. This translates first of all by its space, transposition of a real gallery with an office, rooms which each accommodate a work, a bathroom (which is worth the detour with its dancing skeleton and its bottle of boy tears), and an unpaid non-gendered intern who responds to visitor clicks with relevant information. A nod to the many internship positions in the visual arts, a sector where women also occupy a majority of administrative jobs."

"Galerie Galerie was the victim last week of piracy by the collective Les Enfants de Chienne. It is a virtual gallery, founded last August. His concept is fully in tune with the times, since his exhibitions are only virtual and the works presented are part of the digital movement. In addition, their newsletter is more a means of disseminating the work of artists than a simple informative letter."

"For Latouche, the inclusion of the new term in Galerie Galerie's mandate allows them to distinguish themselves from other Quebec galleries as an alternative place for exhibiting web art. They wish to present works that are more difficult to exhibit in traditional galleries, such as websites and GIFs. For them, it is an effort to legitimize these new art forms that they are trying to facilitate by offering a Quebec and French-speaking exhibition space, in addition to stimulating and contributing to a theorization of the movement."
