Theme : Here We Are Here: Black Canadian Contemporary Art
Duration : 49 minutes
In English

Canada, Jennifer Holness and David Sutherland, 2000, 49 min., OVFST

In the 1930s in rural Ontario, a farmer buried the tombstones of a Black cemetery to make way for a potato patch. In the 1980s, descendants of the original settlers, Black and White, came together to restore the cemetery, but there were hidden truths no one wanted to discuss. Deep racial wounds were opened. Scenes of the cemetery excavation, interviews with residents and re-enactments add to the film’s emotional intensity.

This documentary reveals the upheaval caused by the desecration of these graves and sheds light on the hidden history of Blacks in Canada.

Activity free of charge. Optional pass reservation in exchange for a service charge. One hour before the event, passes for any remaining seats will be given out free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis.

At the Museum, we firmly believe that people are never too old to learn and grow through art and culture. 

A few times this summer, Art in Motion invites people who are 65 and over to join a relaxing morning of new discoveries.

 

This workshop is a chance to discover and explore close connections between works of art, physical movement and the creative act. Participants will start by taking a walk through the museum’s collections.  Next, some simple dance exercises will gently awaken our bodies to the benefits and pleasure of moving. The workshop will end with a short artistic creation that will draw awareness to the body and gestures involved in creative acts.

The workshop will be held in the Sculpture Garden and in Michel de la Chenelière International Atelier for Education and Art Therapy. 

Passes are available on the day of the visit at the admission
