Ciel variable

Ciel variable aims to identify and examine leading practices and movements in contemporary art photography. Although it closely covers the history and different uses of photography, the magazine is particularly interested in photographic practices that share the ground with other contemporary art processes, and engage in reflections on the photographic media, their position, and their impact within today’s global culture.

Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal

ONCE UPON A TIME … THE WESTERN celebrates the beauty of the Western while revealing some of its more sombre aspects. It deals with certain prejudices against the peoples of the First Nations that it helped to perpetuate, and explores themes related to questions that are still current today, such as violence, the stereotypical representation of the sexes, interracial relationships, and the acceptance of difference. It shows the extent to which art has the power to both maintain and challenge the most widespread beliefs.
