Creative Activity

The creative activity is a component of our public engagement projects, which are opportunities to get acquainted with the work of Montréal-based artists whose themes resonate with our exhibitions. This activity lasts 30 to 45 minutes, and can be done on site after a group visit or in class. It is designed for all audiences.

Previous creative activities include, among others, sound/image improvisations, cyanotypes, and textile-based collage.

Traces is a public activity created in response to each of the Foundation’s exhibitions, inviting the public to create a short gesture in response to the works presented. The public’s interventions are intended to accumulate over time, bearing the trace of a collective reflection.
