Journées de la culture 2015

September 26, 2015 - 12 PM to 5 PM

On the occasion of the Journées de la culture and to celebrate the exhibition currently on view, Artexte presents a video programme of performance art documentation selected from our audiovisual collection. This programme, which will be screened continuously in the exhibition space, showcases rare documentations – several of which have recently been digitized – of Quebec performance art from 1990 to today.

Excerpts of performances by Pierre Beaudoin, Nadège Grebmeier Forget, Adam Kinner, Diane Landry, Richard Martel, Francis O’Shaughnessy, PME-Art and Sylvie Tourangeau will offer a glimpse of the diversity of practices in Quebec and invite reflection on the changing nature of performance art documentation.
