VOX + Fondation Guido Molinari + Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal

As part of Period rooms. 8 art experimentations, VOX repeats last spring’s unique experience and organizes a series of urban itineraries in chartered buses. Participants will join personalized guided tours of the chosen sites and will be invited to share their impressions, engage with some of the artists… an entertaining opportunity to learn and network!

The second tour, entitled circuit du XXe siècle, will be led by Gilles Daigneault (art critic, exhibition curator and director of Guido Molinari Foundation) and will include presentations by artists Steve Bates, Thomas Bégin and Klaus Scherübel, as well as curator Marie J. Jean. The activity will mostly be in French.

The activity will come to an end around 4:30 pm, with a drink.

Period rooms. 8 art experimentations

Curated by Marie J. Jean, this event presents experimental works by seven contemporary artists—Steve Bates, Thomas Bégin, Pierre Dorion, Frédérick Gravel, Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyễn, Jocelyn Robert, and Claire Savoie—in the period interiors of the Château Dufresne, the Château Ramezay, Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal, the Sir George-Étienne Cartier residence, and the Guido Molinari Foundation. Concurrently, at VOX, centre de l’image contemporaine, Klaus Scherübel has produced an art intervention that employs the period room format to reconstitute two exhibitions organized in 1947 by the Automatist artists.
