Inspired by Rebecca Belmore’s works entitled Wave Sound, 2017, participants will be invited to create sculptures that, during a later outing in a forest or beside a body of water, will become sound amplifiers. Listening to ambient sounds will heighten your awareness of the fate of our planet and of your relationship with nature.
October 13, 20 and 27 and November 3, 2019
Gisele Amantea’s recent series of works titled Faux sites, 2017, will definitely pique your curiosity and spark your imagination. Combining realism and fiction, you’ll make drawings and collages that will propel you into fantastical worlds. One thing for sure, after this activity, you won’t look at the four columns in the Musée rotunda the same way!
THE SUBJECT EFFECT
November 10, 17 and 24*, December 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29, 2019, and January 5, 2020
*On November 24, 2019, at 1:30 p.m., the activities will also be signed by Québec sign language (LSQ) interpreters.
In contemporary art, the portrait genre regularly changes in nature as different artistic approaches are employed. Depending on the artist’s intention, the human face may be faithfully reproduced, radically altered or even transformed beyond recognition. The goal of representing the subject is set aside. The human face becomes a site of intervention, a vehicle for the imagination, for expression, just like any other real form. Janet Werner’s paintings are no exception to this notion. In this workshop, we will paint portraits that are like no other.
