Kevin Hearn of the Barenaked Ladies (Big Bang Theory theme) buys a painting by the world’s first Indigenous art star: Norval Morrisseau the self-taught, self-destructive Native Canadian genius Chagall once dubbed “The Picasso Of The North,’ creator of the Woodland School, one of three major strains of Indigenous art. 
Hearn begins to doubt his painting’s authenticity, and sues the gallery that sold it to him. He suddenly finds himself in the middle of two darkly comical feuding factions: all white people, each claiming to be the true defenders of this Native artist’s legacy. At stake is the value of a tranche of 3000 Morrisseau paintings worth some $30,000,000. 

The film traces the official provenance of Hearn’s painting, representative of this disputed species, finding only suspiciously dead ends.
Then, as Hearn’s court case proceeds, an almost-unbelievable new tale emerges about the origin of the paintings, turning the story several shades darker than art fraud.

Carte Blanche to Thierry Mugler
Delve into the cinematic imagination of this couture giant through a selection of 12 films that echo his creations. From Metropolis to Microcosmos, it’s Mugler’s world on the big screen!

Italy, Mario Bava, 1960, 83 min – OVE

In 17th-century Moldova, Princess Asa and her lover, Igor Javutich, are suspected of witchcraft and condemned by the Inquisition. Before being put to death, Asa places a terrible curse on her family, who is responsible for her fate. In an extreme gesture of cruelty, the two are branded with the mark of Satan and have his mask affixed to their faces. Two centuries later, the professor Kruvajan, accompanied by his faithful assistant, Gorobek, are in the region for a medical conference. They unwittingly unleash the spell that had been held by the sleeping witch. And so begins the nightmare of the inhabitants of Vajda Castle. The curse is realized as the ghosts wreak terror and death.

Mario Bava revives the vampire myth in this remarkable gothic work executed in the chiaroscuro style. This exquisitely cruel film became a genre classic.

Kevin Hearn of the Barenaked Ladies (Big Bang Theory theme) buys a painting by the world’s first Indigenous art star: Norval Morrisseau the self-taught, self-destructive Native Canadian genius Chagall once dubbed “The Picasso Of The North,’ creator of the Woodland School, one of three major strains of Indigenous art. 
Hearn begins to doubt his painting’s authenticity, and sues the gallery that sold it to him. He suddenly finds himself in the middle of two darkly comical feuding factions: all white people, each claiming to be the true defenders of this Native artist’s legacy. At stake is the value of a tranche of 3000 Morrisseau paintings worth some $30,000,000. 

The film traces the official provenance of Hearn’s painting, representative of this disputed species, finding only suspiciously dead ends.
Then, as Hearn’s court case proceeds, an almost-unbelievable new tale emerges about the origin of the paintings, turning the story several shades darker than art fraud.

Thursday July 18 2019 - 12:45
Meeting point : Cinéma du Musée - 1379-A Sherbrooke Street West
Duration : 1h 53
 

Presented in original English version.

Kevin Hearn of the Barenaked Ladies (Big Bang Theory theme) buys a painting by the world’s first Indigenous art star: Norval Morrisseau the self-taught, self-destructive Native Canadian genius Chagall once dubbed “The Picasso Of The North,’ creator of the Woodland School, one of three major strains of Indigenous art. 
Hearn begins to doubt his painting’s authenticity, and sues the gallery that sold it to him. He suddenly finds himself in the middle of two darkly comical feuding factions: all white people, each claiming to be the true defenders of this Native artist’s legacy. At stake is the value of a tranche of 3000 Morrisseau paintings worth some $30,000,000. 

The film traces the official provenance of Hearn’s painting, representative of this disputed species, finding only suspiciously dead ends.
Then, as Hearn’s court case proceeds, an almost-unbelievable new tale emerges about the origin of the paintings, turning the story several shades darker than art fraud.

Once a month, Art in Motion invites people who are 65 and over to join a relaxing moment 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.
