Riopelle: The Call of Northern Landscapes and Indigenous Cultures focuses on the artist’s engagement with Canada’s northern landscape and emblematic use of Indigenous motifs to construct highly complex paintings, prints and sculptures. Jean Paul Riopelle was a member of the Montreal-based collective known as les automatistes that embraced Surrealist ideals during the 1940s and he would go on to become a leading Tachisme or Action Painter in Paris throughout the 1950s and 1960s. The exhibition and accompanying publication examines Riopelle’s expansive production from the 1950s onward, with an emphasis on his rarely studied practice of the 1970s.
