For this second artistic dinner, the center invites névé dumas and Dalie Giroux to discuss the theme of Powers. ​​​​

The theme focuses on the terminology of Powers in the socio-economic and political sense. As artists and actors in the art scene, and as citizens of an ever-evolving world, what power do we have in the face of the world's giants, and how can the powers be shifted?

Salon #2 is also an opportunity for the two authors to launch their latest book.

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, AXENÉO7 is revisiting a key event from its thirtieth anniversary program (2013): the Salons. A veritable artistic banquet, the Salons bring guest artists together with the centre's community over dinner, for a participatory discussion on a specific subject, and to present research, performances and reflections, all in a convivial atmosphere. 

The Salons series consists of three events presented during each season of the 40th programming year, between La Filature's backyard and the center's exhibition spaces, depending on the weather. These dinners are free and open to all.
