VÉRONIQUE BÉLAND. LES ASTRONAUTES DE LA RAISON ONT PEUPLÉ LE CIEL NOCTURNE

From June 20 to September 22,

This exhibition presents four works combining media art and the art of words. Among them, the installation THIS IS MAJOR TOM TO GROUND CONTROL captures the waves of the cosmos, which are transformed into words and printed before your eyes to transcribe the poetry of the sky. Experimental, the exhibition allows visitors to receive their own message from the Universe.

MARCEL BARBEAU. VIBRATO

From June 15 to September 29

Curator : Marie-Hélène Foisy and Émilie Grandmont Bérubé

Marcel Barbeau, one of the signatories of the Refus global, is a free and independent spirit. After the dissolution of the Automatists, he devoted himself to optical art, an international movement. Op Art is inspired by scientific theories and seeks to give optical illusions. For the viewer it is a physical and destabilizing experience.

This exhibition was produced and circulated by the Musée d’art de Joliette. Funded in part by the Government of Canada
