Gubash, Milutin

Born in Novi Sad (Serbia), Milutin Gubash has lived in Montreal since 2005. He holds an MFA in photography from Concordia University, Montreal, a BFA in photography and a BA in philosophy, both from the University of Calgary. His practice encompasses photography, video, and performance, and regularly features the participation of his family and friends, who portray versions of themselves in Gubash’s Do-It-Yourself sitcoms, soap operas, family photos, and improv-theatre pieces. Using simple means and often comical gestures, conventional domestic, social and professional roles are mixed up and upended. “At every turn Gubash purposely blurs the categories between who he is, who he thinks he is and who we think he is.” (Christopher Willard, C Magazine, no. 91) Following the artist as he “makes up” his life before us, we are invited to reconsider our own assumptions about our identities, histories and environments.

Milutin Gubash has shown in Quebec, Canada, the United States and Europe, including recent solo exhibitions at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (“LOTS,” 2007) and Optica (“Born Rich, Getting Poorer,” 2009), the Museum of Vojvodina in Novi Sad, Serbia (2008), Galerie 3015 in Paris and RLBQ in Marseille (“Which Way to the Bastille?,” 2008).
