Opening Saturday September 9, 2 to 5pm, introduction of the artists @ 3pm
Special Event, Gallery Weekend: September 29, 2023 from 5:30 – 6:00pm. The public is invited to a Cocktail Hour conversation with Evergon & JJ Levine to explore the photographs in The Look.
“Once the language and bond of eye contact is established, it should be cherished. Savour the knowing looks, the love and understanding that exists without a single word, and the intimacy built on nothing but glances and stares.”
ELLEPHANT is proud to present The Look: Evergon, Emmanuelle Léonard and JJ Levine, three generations of important photographers based in Montreal. The exhibition marks the first time these three artists have been presented together. What unites the photographs selected for The Look is the subjects in each photograph stare directly at the viewer with a confrontational gaze.
