About the Artist

About the Exhibition


Milutin Gubash

Born in Novi Sad, Serbia, in 1969, Milutin Gubash lives and works in Montréal. His practice encompasses photography, video, and performance, and regularly calls on the participation of family and friends, who portray versions of themselves in Gubash's DIY sitcoms, soap operas, family photos, and improv theatre pieces. His work has been show internationally in solo exhibitions such as Born Rich, Getting Poorer, Optica, Montréal, 2009; Which Way to the Bastille?, Galerie 3015, Paris, and RLBQ, Marseille, 2008; and LOTS, Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, 2007.

Milutin Gubash is the author of Which Way to the Bastille? published by Éditions J'ai VU in the series Livres d'artistes.

Hotel Tito

Milutin Gubash's new video installation Hotel Tito, pursues his focus on everyday domestic occurrences, using levity and humor to address otherwise traumatic situations. The video alternates between the early 1960s, by way of Hotel Tito, a small bed-and-breakfast in Split, in the already crumbling socialist Yugoslavia of Tito, and the present-day interior of a car parked on a street outside Hôtel-Dieu hospital in Montréal. It is accompanied by "false" abstract paintings, claimed to be portraits of Tito - who was variously regarded as visionary architect of socialism or ruthless dictator of Yugoslavia from 1945 to 1982. Looming in the background, catastrophe inflects everything the protagonists do, see, dream of, and reflect upon. Here, minor mishaps, misunderstandings, and accidents metaphorically allude to larger artistic and existential questions.
