A travelling exhibit activity offered free of charge to primary and high schools, cegeps and libraries.
In an age when images have become one of the primary means for disseminating knowledge and ideas, it seems essential that we train our eye to read them. The portable exhibition is an opportunity to discover contemporary practices in video art and to think about the questions it raises through works from the project Entends-tu ce que je vois? Do You See What I Hear?, presented a short time ago at Dazibao.
The goal of this activity is to develop viewers’ skills in interpreting images and to lead them to ask questions about images. The facilitator projects artworks in class and adapts the discussion to the age of the participants. Rather than being a didactic workshop on contemporary art, the portable exhibition encourages an intuitive approach in which everyone can express their views and there is no such thing as a bad question!
No equipment or material is required on the part of the school. Depending on the age of the participants and the time available for the presentation, a selection of artworks will be made from among the following:
The portable exhibition is available all year. Contact our outreach coordinator to reserve the activity.
