Discussion dans la cour #2
Meet us at the courtyard of La Filature, from 5 to 7PM.
The Discussions dans la cour series is presented as part of the Public Art Summer Programming of AXENÉO7 artist-run centre.
Discussions will be conducted in French.
In parallel with the works Mirador by Josée Dubeau (Gatineau) and Carrousel by Mélanie Myers (Gatineau) in collaboration with the Sentier culturel of the City of Gatineau and, Anti Sculpture Angst Therapy by Lieven Meyer (Montreal), resulting from the Autorésidences, of the Public Art Summer Programming, AXENÉO7 artist-run centre offers the Discussions dans la cour series every Wednesday in July to liven up the courtyard of La Filature through discussions on public art.
