Supportive of non-conventionnal and experimental artistic initiatives for thirty years, GSN puts forth unique and marginal projects by artists that have worked in New Brunswick. Subterfuge focuses on mechanisms of expression that borders between art and reality, addressing issues concerning the status and role of art and the artist in society, as well as what defines art. This publication is concerned with artist’s work that transgresses the boundaries of the traditional art environment, fitting into a common, day-to-day reality. The exhibition explores the art object that takes the shape of familiar ones. It also presents artistic interventions that blur the distinction between “reality” and the “artificial” nature of art.
