Performance by Patrick Bernatchez

For this Nocturne, we are presenting a performance by Patrick Bernatchez from 7 to 8 p.m. in the heart of his exhibition Les Temps inachevés exhibition.

From within his installation 77k, 1er, 2e et 3e mouvement (Goldberg Experienced.03), made up of a 16-mm film, 8 record players and 8 33-rpm records, the artist will immerse us in an enigmatic atmosphere. He will alter and accentuate sound levels by modulating the components of his work.

Art Workshop

Art with a Twist
6 p.m. to 12 a.m.

Slowly and continuously, one twist at a time, we will wrap a small, everyday object with thread and turn it into a novel cocoon. This assembly operation will be preceded and followed by a drawing activity involving observation and interpretation. For this occasion, we will take our inspiration from a remarkable 2007-2013 work titled Fashion Plaza Nights, by Patrick Bernatchez.
