New exhibit: Manitoban inspirations

 

Curated by Emilie Lemay.

From August 27 to October 9.

Since 1974, the Centre culturel franco-manitobain offers high calibre visual art exhibitions that present the work of artists from coast to coast. Many francophone artists of Manitoba are brought to the forefront and participate in our communities’ dialogues about identity.

The artworks we present today were created by people from around here and are figureheads of the permanent collection that CCFM acquired over the years. From historical portraits to contemporary paintings by way of Metis legend illustrations, these creations call to mind changeable socio-political realities of past decades.

The cultural diversity and values that these images convey are part of our collective memory. We invite you to be inspired by them in order to revisit our history and to look at current representations of our society with a critical eye.

Let the memories and discoveries begin!
