The particular period we have been going through for 1 year now pushes us to reinvent ourselves and explore new avenues. Between the closure of museums or the impossibility of receiving groups there, why not include the museum in the MAIH? This is how this exhibition project “Fragments de vue” was born, in partnership with the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (MAC).
To do this, Geneviève Nobert and Tracy Grosvenor, both mediators at the MAC workshops and at the MAC, came to visit the participants of the Explorations in Arts workshop in February 2021. On the program: 3 presentation and creation sessions around the theme of “creating from what already exists” in connection with the exhibition “La Machine qui enseignait des airs aux oiseaux” – currently presented at the MAC. The members were able to dive with open arms into the artistic universe of Vikky Alexander, creating phantasmagorical spaces through collages of fragments of heterogeneous images. But also to enter the colorful and abstract universe of artist Marlon Kroll, continuing his approach of drawing inspiration from everyday objects, from what already exists.
Find the works of Hélène F. Denis, Edon Descollines, Dominique Forget, Angéla Fratianni, Rosemary Hanley and Élise Lecomte in the “Fragments de vue” exhibition, to be seen in the lobby of the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art. Launched as part of the Semaine Québécoise de la déficience intellectuelle (SQDI) from March 21 to 26, 2021, the exhibition will be visible until the beginning of June 2021!
