Welcome to Museum’s School of Art !

Tuesdays, April 24, May 1, 8, 15, 22

Learn some of the many techniques of watercolour that allow you to get all those marvellous qualities of transparency and opaqueness. A beautiful medium that artists such as Cézanne, Turner and Van Gogh practised with breathtaking results.

Instructor: André Pijet, artist and Art Educator

André Pijet moved from his native Poland to settle in Quebec in 1988. His training in fine arts and photography, along with his innate talent for drawing, soon led him to a career as an illustrator, caricaturist and cartoonist. He is well-known for his book illustrations and for his work as a graphic artist and art director. His works have been featured in several major exhibitions, earning him a number of international prizes.

Elizabeth Harney, associate professor of art history, University of Toronto 

How do contemporary African artists engage with histories of primitivism, and how do they understand the European fascination with Africa’s artistic heritage? This lecture will question how the familiar story of modernism can be challenged, not only through greater attention to African and diasporic modernists who, like Picasso, looked to African traditional arts to create modern images in the early to mid-part of the twentieth century, but also through contemporary artistic returns to the aesthetic forms and debates central to the colonial-modern era.

Activity free of charge. Optional pass reservation: in order to guarantee admission to the lectures, you may reserve a numbered seat 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.

It’s not every prima donna who can boast a degree in biomedical engineering, but then, Isabel Bayrakdarian isn’t your average prima donna. An eagerly anticipated visitor to opera houses and concert halls around the world, she has become as celebrated for her beauty, presence, and style as for her strikingly multi hued voice that’s wholly in sync with the rest of her.

Winner of four consecutive Junos for best classical album of the year, this famed Armenian-Canadian soprano will be featured in an evening of romantic, dramatic, and beguiling works by composers of Armenia and Armenian descent. Join us to discover the glorious music of Bayrakdarian’s roots.

Introducing the compositions of Armenian-Canadien Kevork Andonian.
This concert is made possible thanks to the generous contribution of Greg Andonian.

France, Michel Brent, 2008, 52 min. 
*Narrated by Richard Bohringer

Each year, valuable African objects are illegally exported and sold secretly on the international art market. This documentary recounts, in alarming detail, the journey of a stolen ritual object of great significance. The important wooden fetish of the Dogon disappeared from the shrine where it had been conserved for centuries, only to reappear for sale at a Paris art gallery. Tracking the circumstances surrounding the theft and the motivations that led to its sale, the filmmaker reveals the investigation carried out in Mali’s Dogon region.
