CAROLE BAILLARGEON, “THUS…”
December 12, 2018 to February 6, 2019 at the CCFM Art Gallery
Used by passing time, dressed in various fabrics sewn together, each of these scissors seems to have a story to share. What do they tell us of their experiences, of the challenges they went through, of the ups and downs of their existence?
Québécois artist Carole Baillargeon gives to these every-day tools a personality and a life, intimately linked to those of their users. A life built on connections cut and re-attached, on hopes and resilience.
- The CCFM invites you to come meet the artist in the gallery on Friday, December 14 from 5 pm to 7 pm. Free admission!
50/30 YEARS OF EPHEMERAL PLEASURE
February 12 to March 6 at the CCFM Art Gallery
Every year, we see them on our boulevards… They grow back in the middle of the winter, in new shapes, before time makes them disappear… Snow sculptures are part of the Festival du Voyageur since its beginning. Built in the prime winter material, they delight Manitobans year after year.
50/30 years of ephemeral pleasure is a step back on the evolution of an unusual art practice. Through a collection of rare pictures and videos, this exhibit pays tribute to carving artists from Manitoba and all around the world, who shaped the identity of the biggest winter festival in western Canada.
- Opening / Meeting with the Symposium artists: Wednesday Feb 12, 6 pm
