Launch of the publication Stopping/Arrêts, a project by Jean-François Prost.
Co-produced by Adaptive Actions and the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, Concordia University
Location: Librairie Le Port de tête, 269, avenue du Mont-Royal Est, Montreal
In a project begun in 2015 in Mexico City and further developed in Montreal in 2017, Jean-François Prost explores these realities for their contrasts with the incessant movement of people and related structures in contemporary cities where sometimes even self-constructions (autoconstrucción) of time and space are forbidden. This publication delves into these questions by way of photographic works, daily actions and public interventions as well as texts by Francis Alÿs, Eduardo Barrera, Ana Patricia Alonso Contreras, Evelin Santander Daza, José Ramon Estrada, Guillaume Éthier, Marlon García, Maurizio Lazzarato, Raúl Garza Morales, Alfredo Montiel Pimentel, La Liga Tensa and Santiago Arau Pontones, Gabriela Sandoval, Santiago Sierra and the Stopping action-workshops.
