Runa Islam at Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal

Runa Islam
Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal
May 21 – September 6, 2010

Through her works, Islam pursues an investigation of the history of experimental film, doing away with narrative structures and representations in favour of visual explorations. The Montréal presentation focuses on the artist’s fascination with cinema as a device. It consists of five 16-mm film installations produced over the last six years, including a 2010 work commissioned by the two presenting museums.
