All About Bach Cantatas

In Bach’s day, each instrument signified a particular element or domain through various associations related to its sound, its construction, its form, or its origins. In his cantatas, the great Cantor of Leipzig made extensive use of this symbolic dimension, to more forcefully express the theological message of the texts.

Le Cirque de Calder, reflet et miroir d’un monde en marche

Pascal Jacob, circus arts author and historian

When Alexander Calder arrived in Paris in 1926 and decided to create “his” circus there, he had already developed a facility with this art form. The Paris years were also a golden age for the circus, and many painters frequented the various venues that presented equestrian and acrobatic shows in the French capital. These shows would prove to be a wonderful source of inspiration for Calder, but he would above all meld these Parisian images with his memories of America, syncretizing the circus with touching poetry and verity. The lecture will address these intuitive bonds between a world anchored in daily reality and the amused ingenuity of a towering sculptor, but also the suspension of time, in which the circus is revealed through the eyes of artists as an artform that is both mainstream and sophisticated, a pretext for creating magnificent works.

*Presented thanks to the support of Magdeleine Loevenbruck

The Circus (Le cirque)

United States, Charlie Chaplin, 1928, 72 min (with English intertitles)

Presented by Pascal Jacob, circus arts author and historian

At the fair, the Tramp is mistaken for a pickpocket and chased by a policeman. As he runs away, the Tramp stumbles into a circus midway and cuts in on a clown performance, wowing the audience. The ringmaster hires him as prop man. Every evening, his clumsiness makes spectators laugh and he unwittingly becomes the hit of the show. He falls in love with Merna, a beautiful horsewoman and the ringmaster’s stepdaughter, but she favours Rex, the tightrope walker.

A masterpiece of silent comedy, this tribute to acrobats is worth watching over and over again.

This master illuminator, who spent 10 years under the tutelage of an Italian Franciscan and who has illuminated such seminal works as the Apocalypse and the Divine Comedy, designs illuminations as both an artistic and spiritual experience. For this workshop, participants will need to bring a set square, compass, paper and pencil to follow and apply the teachings. They will examine how the study of geometry, which underpins the preparation of a parchment for illumination, contributes to creating a space conducive to contemplating Books of Hours.

SYMPOSIUM

The objective of this symposium is to present diverse facets of Books of Hours – pigments, decorated manuscripts and prints, original bindings and unique elements of particular works
(e.g. sheet music inserts) – to gain an appreciation of the production and aesthetics underlying Books of Hours from the thirteenth to the sixteenth century in Europe. This exploration will include an overview of their history on Quebec soil, which is inextricably linked to the history of their collectors and the constitution of Canadian collections of early books.

Friday September 28 2018 - 18:30
Duration : 1h

Written in September 1816, the first of Schubert’s two string trios remained unfinished, with only one completed movement and a rough sketch of the second, marked andante sostenuto. His Octet, on the other hand, completed while the composer was struggling financially and undermined by illness, is a work of great breadth. Influenced by Beethoven and dedicated to the skilled clarinetist Count Ferdinand Troyer, it has always been a favourite of the chamber music repertoire.

NOTE: In connection with Resplendent Illuminations: Books of Hours from the 13th to the 16th Century in Quebec Collections

Discover a little known and fascinating art form in this workshop designed for all. 

Following an overview of the history of illuminated manuscripts, in connection with the Museum’s temporary exhibition Resplendent Illuminations: Books of Hours from the 13th to the 16th Century in Quebec Collections, you will be invited to create a small illumination inspired by the Insular manuscripts from England, Scotland and Ireland dating to the early Middle Age. The steps to its completion will follow those used in the scriptoriums of the time. You will explore such concepts as iconography, as well as image transfer, composition, layout and colour harmony, and learn the technique of painting in gouache, including egg tempera. The workshop will conclude with a demonstration of the application of gold leaf.  

Instructor: Marie-Louise Pépin, artist and art educator

Marie Louise Pépin taught visual arts and art history at the Collège de Bois-de-Boulogne in Montreal for many years. As an artist, she has long been interested in the technique of illumination, particularly the insular manuscripts of the Early Middle Ages. A keen promoter of international education, in 2004, she founded a major collaboration focussed on artistic exchanges between Quebec and Cuba, specifically the Collège de Bois-de-Boulogne and the Academia de Artes Plásticas El Alba in Holguín. Numerous projects arose from this partnership, including three major exhibitions presented in the Michel de la Chenelière Educational Spaces at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibition International Postal Art, presented in 2014 and featuring more than 1,300 works from twelve countries, was the culmination of this collaboration.
