Showing Molinari’s StripesFrom September 12, 2014 to October 19, 2014

Prophetic AnglesFrom October 24, 2014 to November 30, 2014
The installation The Prophets, 2013, by Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens, on display as part of the Biennale de Montréal, will inspire you to create playful little sculptures made up of personalized geometric forms. With much attention to detail, you’ll explore a variety of unusual assemblage techniques. The artistic properties of the materials suggested will be sure to guide your imagination!
In Another DimensionFrom December 5, 2014 to January 4, 2015
Basim Magdy’s works on paper, seen in the Biennale de Montréal, will transport you to a world full of enigmas. In the same inventive spirit, you’ll paint landscapes covered with multicoloured polyhedrons carpeting both earth and sky.
Pointing the WayFrom January 9, 2015 to February 8, 2015
The installation by Étienne Tremblay-Tardif, titled Matrice signalétique pour la réfection de l’échangeur Turcot, 2009−2020, and exhibited in the Biennale de Montréal, will be starting point for this very creative workshop. Your composition will take form out of images of the city, urban-planning schemes and various highly expressive and colourful gestures. The combination of
mixed media offered promises a delightful journey along the road of invention.
Masks Up!From February 13, 2015 to March 29, 2015
Simon Starling’s captivating Project for a Masquerade (Hiroshima), 2010−2011, will prompt you to create some most unusual masks. The use of relief and colour will add special personality to your project.
The Other Side of the PictureFrom April 3, 2015 to May 10, 2015
Inspired by Thomas Demand’s Vault, 2012, you’ll use paper-folding techniques to create innovative models made up of multiple repeated elements. They may recall familiar surroundings, but your three-dimensional assemblages could also make you lose your bearings!
Dazzle Your Eyes!From May 15, 2015 to June 18, 2015
No doubt about it, Marie-Claire Blais’s painting Brûler les yeux fermés, 2012, shimmers with eye-dazzling heat. After observing this work, you’ll paint abstract images covered with successive
delicate, transparent layers revealing luminous, circular forms.
