Artwork description

In 1965, the Ministère des Affaires culturelles du Québec launches the “Symposium du Québec”, a major sculpture event held in the gardens of the recently inaugurated Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. Nine well-known sculptors are invited to create artworks, tied to the theme of welded and cut metal, that are intended be acquired by the Musée. As a participant, Ivanhoë Fortier produces Untitled, an imposing steel sculpture now located on the site of the Maisonneuve-Rosemont hospital. Reflecting a mastery of form and line, this work echoes, through its monumentality and its architectural qualities, the idea of “inhabitable” sculptures developed by the artist in the early 1970’s.
