August is upon us. As the back to school frenzy begins, and the collective Osheaga post-concert depression sets in, check out some of these events and get all that off your mind:
August 3-September 6 at Monastiraki, vernissage August 5
Montreal-based street painter, Waxhead, has a solo exhibit this month. Monastiraki invites us to spend some time with the artist’s “lovable critters.” Don’t miss this!
August 5-15 at the Ashukan Cultural Space
An exhibit curated by Jason Vallières & Carolina Echeverria, Teiotiokwenhahton: Beadwork – Visions of Peace features works of raised beadwork from the Americas and Europe. There will also be storytelling and conversation circles, allowing viewers to interact with the themes and issues discussed in the exhibit. Stay tuned for an interview with Carolina Echeverria, Native-Immigrant Artistic Director, coming this week.
August 6, 7 PM at Fonderie Darling
A performance by Lum and Desranleau of Seripop: using their bodies, objects and the spaces in between, these artists will transform the gallery right before your eyes. Seripop is known for their inventive choreography and interesting use of objects. If you’ve never seen a Seripop performance, you have a date this Thursday.
August 7 at RATS 9
This group show is part of a collaboration with the Pervers/Cité festival. The performances will begin at 7 p.m. sharp and they are bound to be thought-provoking.
August 7 at Glass Door Gallery
Glass Door Gallery is celebrating collage! This group show features emerging Montreal-based artists who work with or are inspired by collage. ‘Zines and other cool items will be for sale. If you need yet another reason to pass by, your ears will be treated to a special audio collage set by Così e Così.
Until next week, enjoy all that this creative city has to offer!
