This summer, the MAC invites the D/deaf and hard of hearing community to the Museum.
Each program includes the presence of QSL and ASL interpreters who will accompany the art mediators and participants in the discovery of artworks and the joy of making. Our summer programming is designed so that you can take part in one or two different activities.
It’s free! Reserve now. Our passionate art mediators are waiting for you!
En famille at the MAC: EXPAND INTO SPACE
Explore some of the sculptures from the Museum’s collection dating from the 1960s that have taken up residence at Place Ville Marie. You will learn how the materials and shapes of these works interact with their new environment. You will be fully immersed, creating three-dimensional compositions revealing contrasts that will energize the space: smooth and textured surfaces, solids and voids, geometric and organic shapes.
Saturday July 9
- From 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. with a Quebec Sign Language (QSL) interpreter. The activity will be held in French.
- From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. with an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter. The activity will be held in English.
En famille at the MAC: FROM PLASTIC TO COSMIC
Come and discover the exhibition of Argentinian-born American artist Mika Rottenberg. Her surrealist video installations will make you smile, but also reflect on the world we live in. The artist’s explorations will encourage you to be bold, playful and critical in the studio. Through unexpected combinations of trinkets, images, sounds and manipulations, you will create some of the most colourful stagings. You will be invited to photograph and film the results, like absurd narratives, hovering between reality and fiction.
