Lecture by Maya Cousineau Mollen, poet, Chantal Ringuet, author, researcher and literary translator, and Eddy Firmin, artist and doctor in Studies and Practices of Arts at UQAM

Montreal is often defined by its makeup of a multitude of global cultures, groups and identities. But what does all of this mean to us? We invite you to ponder the true meaning of diversity in a context that transcends borders, definitions, and space as we know it.

 

This event is presented in partnership with the Conseil des arts de Montréal.

ÉCHOS DU POSTIMPRESSIONNISME DANS L’ART AU QUÉBEC    

As part of the presentation of the exhibition Paris in the period of Post-Impressionism, this series of talks will focus on the influence of the various trends linked to Impressionism and Post-Impressionism in Quebec art.

Lecture series hosted by Esther Trépanier, Professor of Art History, UQAM, in connection with the exhibition Paris in the Days of Post-Impressionism: Signac and the Indépendants.

February 19: Quel impressionnisme?

Works in the Museum’s collection will serve as the basis of a consideration of the influence of Impressionism on the early days of modern art in Canada. Light, vivid colours, and visible brush strokes do not necessarily make a painting “Impressionist”. The artists also borrowed from Synthetism, the decorative approach of the Nabis and the art of the juste milieu. We shall demonstrate that these works cannot all be ascribed to Impressionism.

Lecture by Diane Gistal, independent curator, student in literature and graduate in History,
UQAM, and Eddy Firmin, artist, PhD in Art Study and Practice, UQAM. In connection with Black History Month.

How can an imagination shattered by colonization be restored? Eddy Firmin, a Caribbean-Canadian artist with a doctorate in Études et Pratiques des Arts from UQAM, presents his approach to the decolonization of the imagination through the bossal method. This visual and textual framework puts together disparate and incongruous stories that make it possible to re-establish some close relationships that have been lost owing to cultural clashes.

Presented in original multilingual version subtitled in French.

BOTERO is a poetic behind-the scenes chronicle of the life and art of Fernando Botero, an intensely private painter and sculptor. Viewers will be inspired to see his commitment to a unique artistic vision power his rise from provincial Colombia to become “the Maestro,” still active in his studio at 86 years old. This film was shot in 10 cities in China, Colombia, France, Italy, Monaco and the United States. BOTERO the documentary offers a unique opportunity for us to get up close and personal with a living legend. He is the greatest living artist with the highest number of museum exhibitions, the greatest number of books published about him, the greatest international appeal and with the greatest number of people attending his exhibitions. 100 major museum exhibitions in more than 40 countries, 4.7 million visits in three years. One of his sculptures is right in front of LHotel on St-Jacques Sreet in Old-Montreal.

Presented in original English version subtitled in English.

In the remote English-speaking village of Rivière-Saint-Paul, in Quebec’s Basse-Côte-Nord region, majestic landscapes are not enough to stop young people from moving away. Having grown up far from any city, Ethan, Brittney, Whitney and Patrick will soon leave their families behind, travelling thousands of kilometres to go to school and brighten their prospects. With the fishing industry in sharp decline, their elders are struggling to keep their traditional way of life alive. From breathtaking scenery to frank interviews and intimate observations, A Place of Tide and Time contrasts the visions of different generations, leading to a nuanced, unvarnished reflection on happiness and identity in a littleknown part of Quebec.

Making the songs and music of peoples from past to present ring out, by reconnecting and uniting their breathing, their voices… Musically revisiting our relationship to the universe…

In a circular formation, Mi’kmaq songs and prayers will mingle with Tuvan overtone-singing, melisma and Persian singing. Joining their dialogue will be the ney (end-blown flute), the most ancient and emblematic instrument in Sufi culture, along with frame drums, impassioned setar and kanun, and a viola da gamba, that together will create a sonic environment where both the beauty and the complexity of our world burst forth.

Breathings, a musical experience to remind us of our fragile relationship to the universe and to the fundamental elements of life.

Presented in original italian version with French subtitles.

The greatest opera, theatre play and ballet classics from around the world on a cinema screen !

Verdi’s AÏDA by the Gram Teatre del Liceu of Barcelona.

 

In the dramatic opera Aïda, composed at the age of 58, Verdi presents with his musical and theatrical know-how a love triangle that brings Aïda, Amneris and Radamès to live their passion, their love and their hatred to the end. The work, which marks the opening of the Suez Canal, is set against the backdrop of ancient Egypt and serves as a pretext for offering a grandiose choir and symphonic scenes with superb arias throughout the score.

For her debut at the prestigious Catalan theatre, Angela Meade will inhabit the now mythical sets of the Manrésan scenographer Josep Mestres Cabanes. Seventy-five years later, admired by four generations of music lovers, this colossal production is still able to excite the public.
