EXHIBITIONS

IN THE BACKCOUNTRY OF NICOLAS
 
April 13 to July 8, 2017

Exhibition view, In the Backcountry of Nicolas, Musée Régional de Rimouski, November 29, 2015 to March 16, 2016, curator: Ève De Garie-Lamanque

 

From April 13 to July 8, 2017, the Foreman Art Gallery presents the second installment of a three-year series dedicated to reaching new audiences. In the Backcountry of Nicolas is one of few contemporary art exhibitions designed for youth. Although conceived for children aged 7 to 10, this exhibition will interest the young and the not so young. Visitors are invited to explore the dreamlike universe of Nicolas, a young boy who lives in the fictional town of Saint-Barreau-les- Berçantes.
 
Accompanied by their parents or grandparents, children can enjoy drawings, sculptures, videos and installations while stopping to participate in interactive activities. Playful and dynamic, the exhibition raises questions about geography, history, society and heritage.

 

CULTURAL MEDIATION ACTIVITIES

In the context of this exhibition, we offer the opportunity to all schools in the region to reserve a guided tour and an accompanying creative workshop, conducted in the Art Lab. The children will have the chance to create their own postcard, which will illustrate and describe their own backcountry.

– All activities are offered in French and in English.
– Please note that a 5$ fee per child is asked for the creative workshop.
– To plan a visit, please contact us by email at [email protected] or call us at 819-822-9600 #2260
