The Artistorian’s Weekly Picks October 13 to 19

Shop art, create art and see art this week in Montreal.

Various viruses have been spreading through the halls and offices. I, for one, have fallen victim to the common cold. Let’s all nurse ourselves back to health asap, because there’s a lot to see and do this week!

BF4E, exhibit

Parallèles 1b by Mathieu Lévesque

Galeries Trois Points, until November 14

A solo exhibit of Mathieu Lévesque’s recent works, this installation pushes the boundaries of painting. The canvas, the surface, the painting, the space are all put into question. A very interesting exploration of painting and sculpture as one.

Conversation with Dana Schutz, artist talk

Dana Schutz

MAC, October 15 at 6 PM

The MAC will be hosting a conversation between artist Dana Schutz and curator John Zeppetelli. This also marks the opening of Schutz’s exhibit at the museum, on from October 17 to January 10, 2016, highlighting her recent works. Tickets cost $5 for students and $10 for adults and will be sold at the MAC on a first come, first served basis starting at 4 PM on Thursday. Stressful! Get in line early.

Le Market, event

Le Market

Artgang Montreal, October 16-18 at 7 PM

Le Market and Artgang Montreal have collaborated to create this awesome art market for you. No, this is not your Saturday morning market… shop, meet tons of young, emerging artists and designers, dance around to DJ sets, drink some cocktails, and take part in the many activities they have planned throughout the event.

#boxtape, interactive installation

#boxtape. Svetla Atanasova

Griffintown the paper factory, October 16-20

Come take part, in #boxtape, an interactive piece where the public will help create an installation made entirely out of boxtape. Finger foods, hot drinks and kombucha will be served. It’s also the opening night for Phénomena, a festival promoting emerging artists working with interdisciplinary (and atypical) approaches. Seriously not to miss, stuff like this is super cool. RSVP before the 15, tickets cost $15.
