The Collectors Symposium 2017 Committee chooses Skawennati
In the spirit of a museum’s art acquisition committee, the eleventh Collectors Symposium, generously sponsored by National Bank Private Wealth 1859, was held at the museum on Tuesday, November 14.
Co-chaired by Julie Couture and Sara Joli-Coeur, this fundraising event for the Musée Foundation brought together seventy guests who were invited to take part in selecting the next work that will enrich the Musée Collection.
Marie-Ève Beaupré, Lesley Johnstone and François Letourneux from the artistic direction team, presented works by Skawennati (TimeTraveller™, 2007-2014 et Onkweshòn:’a: Words Before All Else Part 1,2017) by Karen Tam (Série Field Trip, 2015) and by Nicolas Grenier (From Our Position, Yours Is a Mystery, 2017)
Following their deliberations, our guests selected Skawennati’s two video works from the series Machinima.
