Devenir le monde que nous habitons.
28 avr. – 6 mai
Gala d’ouverture :
Vendredi 28 mai – 17h
What was Salonesque back in 2015 (and now a biannual event) returns in 2017 in the spirit of Expo 67, a world gathering, which left an indelible mark on the city of Montréal as well as Canada.
MAI’s rendition, Expo 67/17, a community exchange initiative includes a non-juried exhibition where section by section of the gallery walls will be filled from floor to ceiling (the more art, the more wall space covered). The exhibition embraces major themes put forth by the original fair – humankind as the creator, the explorer, the producer, the provider, and the community. Your work therefore becomes your pavilion, your identity card. New this edition, MAI’s theatre space will be activated for and by artists wishing to showcase unplugged versions of works in a variety of disciplines over the course of opening night.
