New exhibit: Manitoban inspirations

MANITOBAN INSPIRATIONS: SELECTED WORKS FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION

 

 

August 26 to September 5 at the CCFM visul arts gallery

Curated by Emilie Lemay

 

“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!”

Looking back on 2017-2018…

… We must say, this was an incredible, busy, funny year. We had 5 exhibits with artists from all over Canada, we had some games screened at the CCFM for the first time (the Winnipeg Jets in playoff series and more recently the FIFA World Cup), we danced like crazy or chilled with about 50+ gigs (Mardi Jazz, Coups de coeur francophone)… And a lot of new memories.

Here are some pictures of what we thought were the highlights of this year.

Thanks to all of you for coming down at the CCFM, and see you in September!

Highlights of FIFA World cup at CCFM

Five games of francophone teams were screened in Antoine-Gaborieau Hall from June 15 to 25.

It was great to see people of different age, different nationality and background coming to the CCFM to see/support their team – some of them even took part in Envol 91 FM radio shows!

This is what makes soccer magic. Thanks to all for coming!

THU JUNE 21

Screening of the film At the heart of Manitoba’s Francophone community

Antoine Gaborieau hall / free

From the French explorer Pierre Gaultier de Varennes, Sieur de La Vérendrye’s first visit to the Red River in 1738, to the vibrant, exciting Francophone communities peppered across our province today, this narrative is still being written in a most colorful way. The film explores the trials, tribulations, determination, achievements and the joie de vivre of a community once expected to fade into the history books but has nonetheless persevered and is thriving today.

Screenings in french at 6 pm and 8 pm. Screenings in english at 7 pm and 9 pm.
