As part of its digital programming, the MAC is rebroadcasting the performances presented in the EMERGE festival at the Musée from November 19 to 23, 2019.
Dedicated to contemporary performance, EMERGE brought together a dozen of the most important Canadian and European artists in the discipline. During the week, a symposium also invited the public, artists, curators, art critics and theorists from here and abroad to share thoughts on the latest events and issues pertaining to performance art.
In addition to the program of works presented, five episodes of podcasts produced by the Consulat Général de France à Québec provide an opportunity to revisit the forum that concluded the event. (in French)
