Curiosities is an exhibition for the family intended especially for school-age children 6 years old and over.
The exhibition is a collaborative endeavour with Vicky Sabourin, artist. For the Manif d'art 8 event, the Family Gallery features works tailored to children by an artist who participates in the Biennial.
Vicky Sabourin’s artistic universe revolves around natural history, artefacts and curio cabinets. The Family Gallery houses an immersive exhibition consisting of showcases and cabinets, and introduces children to a diorama that enables them to be an active part of it and to play inside the installation. The nocturnal ambiance gives children the impression that they are visiting a forest at night and are entering the artist’s world that is not unlike the realm of Grimms’ fairy tales.
Works by artist John Boyle-Singfield will be part of the group exhibition Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016 presented at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. The exhibition focuses on the ways in which artists have dismantled and reassembled the conventions of cinema—screen, projection, darkness—to create new experiences of the moving image. October 28, 2016 to February 5, 2017.
Sylvain Bouthillette will be part of the group exhibition In Post-World: Post-Punk Art Now presented at The Invisible Dog Gallery, Brooklyn, from October 27 to November 6, 2016. The exhibition brings together Canadian and American artists whose practice are inspired by the punk movement.
