Biennale d'art performatif
17 to 20 october 2018
We imagined the route Marseille-Noranda-Rouyn-Sudbury-Montreal to break the cycle of repetition. South-north-south-south. Travel, travel, go elsewhere if we are there or not. Find each other. The 9th Biennale of Performative Art is marked by stimulating collaborations with Actoral, an international festival of contemporary arts and writing in Marseille, the MA, our art museum in Rouyn, the Sudbury Alternative Art Fair and L'Usine C, place of contemporary creation in Montreal. Each edition, the invitation to renew the codes of performative art is even more lively, inclusive, without definition and especially generous. As we are in the hands of professionals! Those for whom art is a gift of oneself. As Peter Pringle sings, "If I were a magician, I would reinvent a world."
