Modernism In Miniature: Points Of View At Octagonal Gallery In Montreal

October 12, 2011


The recently opened exhibition Modernism in Miniature: Points of View at Octagonal Gallery in Montreal explores the encounter between photography and model-making between 1920-1960.

It focuses on model photography as a distinctive genre and suggests that the so-called ‘model boom’ was inextricably bound up with the explosion of modern mass media.

The objects on display illustrate a variety of visual practices ranging from straight records of study models to hyper-realist photomontage.

The exhibition provokes questions about the relationship between media in architectural culture and the specific impact of photography on the perception of the miniature.

‘Modernism in Miniature: Points of View’, runs until January 8th at Octagonal Gallery, The Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA), Montréal, Québec.
