The Baie-Saint-Paul Museum of Contemporary Art is holding an exhibition entitled Le mur des rapaces, volet 3, from artist René Derouin. In this exhibition, Derouin revisits his continent and takes a fresh look at the world that surrounds him. The exhibition introduces a contemporary issue and denounces our overconsuming society. The key component of the exhibition, Le mur de rapaces, created in 2017, stretches over almost 11 metres and focuses on four main subjects: the train, raptors, migration and the wall. Until November 3, 2019.
Also under way at the BSPMC, Quand la lumière s’éteint elle revient en noir exhibits the works of Jacques Hurtubise created between 1962 and 1986, which demonstrate how much Hurtubise’s style transformed itself over three decades without ever losing its vigour. Until November 3, 2019.
The city of Baie-Saint-Paul will, again this year, be stormed by artists participating in the 37th Contemporary Art International Symposium, under the theme of Art, Architecture, Landscape & Environment. Artists will welcome visitors to their workshops, where they will be able to witness a variety of artistic practices, illustrating various facets of contemporary art. Thanks to a rich and varied program, which proposes conferences, films and closing performance, visitors will each day be able to live a unique experience. From July 26 to August 25, 2019. The complete Symposium program, including participating artists, is available on www.symposiumbsp.com.
