Galerie Hop Montréal : samedi 25 avril 2015

De l’art. Des présentations. Des visites.

Click here for the English Montreal Hop page.

** Nous n’acceptons malheureusement plus les inscriptions car les autobus-navettes sont pleins. Vous êtes invités à vous joindre au groupe au premier arrêt des visites.

Rejoignez-nous pour Galerie Hop Montréal, organisée par la Canadian Art Foundation, en partenariat avec RBC.

Les visites seront guidées en français et en anglais par des écrivains, des conservateurs et des critiques. Les guides se pencheront sur les thématiques des expositions de chaque galerie et institution artistique visitée, afin de faire découvrir aux participants les œuvres d’art de chaque espace d’une manière enrichissante et conviviale.

Cette année, Galerie Hop Montréal a lieu conjointement avec la foire Papier15. Nous tiendrons un stand à Papier15, où vous pourrez en apprendre davantage sur tous les événements de Hop MTL. Le départ des visites et des présentations se fera depuis la foire.

Lors de Galerie Hop Montréal, rencontrez les artistes et les experts en art associés au projet Artistes émergents RBC. Chaque arrêt affilié est signalé par un astérisque.

Table ronde : Œuvres sur papier, œuvres en cours
En anglais
De 12 h à 13 h
Papier15, Complexe de Gaspé, 5445, avenue de Gaspé

Pendant une grande partie de l’histoire de l’art, les œuvres sur papier ont été considérées comme des objets préparatoires, plutôt que des produits finis. Cette présentation, animée par Caoimhe Morgan-Feir, rédactrice intérimaire de la version en ligne de Canadian Art, se penchera sur les versions contemporaines du caractère provisoire du papier. Les photographies non traitées, les images par addition et les croquis effacés d’aujourd’hui renferment-ils des indices sur l’histoire et le potentiel de cette forme d’art?

Visites et présentations
de 13 h 30 à 17 h
Différents lieux à Montréal

Prenez part à une visite guidée des nombreuses galeries et institutions artistiques montréalaises. À chaque arrêt, un expert en art vous présentera l’exposition à l’affiche. Les visites se dérouleront en français et en anglais.

De 17 h 30 à 19 h

Dazibao, 109–5455, avenue de Gaspé

Micah Lexier: Finder Keeper
Directors: Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier

Micah Lexier: Finder Keeper is a short film about artist Micah Lexier’s ongoing cardboard-collecting project, which began in the late 1990s. “There is no story behind the collecting—it was just that I had always taken photos of things like this, and one day I got up the nerve to go through the garbage and cut out those things I wanted. I think it had to do with getting older and realizing that no one cares what you do, so you might as well do what you want. I wanted to remember these things, so I started taking them home.” (ML)

The film is co-directed by Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier and produced by Mercury Films, in consultation with Sarah Milroy. It was made possible with a grant from Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts and is a prototype for a series of short films on Canadian visual artists.

This short film will be screened before each screening during the Reel Artists Film Festival.

Entries to the RBC Canadian Painting Competition are now being accepted online at rbc.com.

The RBC Canadian Painting Competition, established in 1999, is produced with the expertise of the Canadian Art Foundation. The competition seeks to support and nurture the next generation of Canadian artists by providing them with a forum to display their talents to the country. Finalists are selected by three regional juries, comprised of experienced gallery directors, artists, curators and industry leaders. Jurors choose five paintings from each of the three regions, narrowing down the selection to 15 finalists.

The three juries convene for a two-day deliberation, and determine one national winner and two honourable mentions from the shortlist. The national winner receives a purchase prize of $25,000, the two honourable mentions each receive $15,000 and the remaining 12 finalists each receive $2,500.

The top three works become part of the RBC Corporate Collection, which holds more than 4,000 works of art collected over the past century.

Applications are accepted online at rbc.com and must be received by May 6, 2015, at 4 p.m. EDT. Finalists will be announced on June 24, 2015, and will have their work displayed at Vancouver’s Contemporary Art Gallery in November 2015.

Gold Screen Tickets, Early Bird (purchase before March 6): $225
Gold Screen Tickets (purchase after March 6): $300

Beltracchi: The Art of Forgery tells the story of Wolfgang Beltracchi, the ultimate risk-taker, who pulled off the biggest art-forgery scandal of the past 100 years. Together with his wife, Helene, he created works in the styles of well-known 20th-century artists and introduced them into the market as originals. The charismatic and witty artist fooled Sotheby’s, Christie’s and other international art experts for nearly 40 years before being caught. See into the Beltracchis’ world with this gripping film that won Best Documentary at the 2014 German Film Awards.

The RAFF Opening Night Celebration always includes an unforgettable party. Before the film, enjoy cocktails and canapés at Malaparte (located on the sixth floor of TIFF Bell Lightbox) with some of Toronto’s most renowned film experts, tastemakers and VIPs. Then, watch the film and stay for a rousing discussion on art forgery and other topics from the film.

Arne Birkenstock, producer, director and screenwriter of Beltracchi: The Art of Forgery, will introduce the film and then participate in a conversation with art critic Blake Gopnik on art forgeries.

Arne Birkenstock
Based in Cologne, Birkenstock has directed several successful feature-length documentaries, including 12 Tangos: Adios Buenos Aires (2005); Chandani: The Daughter of the Elephant Whisperer (2010), which won gold in the Outstanding Children or Youth Film category at the 2011 German Film Awards; and Sound of Heimat (2012). Birkenstock is a board member of the German Documentary Association/AG DOK and a member of the European Documentary Network, the German Film Academy and the European Film Academy.

Blake Gopnik
Art critic Blake Gopnik has been published in numerous publications, including Artnet News, the Washington Post, the Globe and Mail, Newsweek/Daily Beast and the New York Times. In 2013, he defended the virtues of art forgeries in the Times, setting off a series of hotly debated exchanges in the critical press and art community.

Before this film, there will be a screening of the short Micah Lexier, Finder, Keeper by filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal.

Program is subject to change.

The Reel Artists Film Festival is one of many programs produced by the Canadian Art Foundation. Your ticket purchase to the RAFF Opening Night Celebration includes a contribution to the Canadian Art Foundation, which will directly support CAF programs and initiatives that connect art enthusiasts with the arts throughout the year.

SCHOOLHOP-069

 

The Canadian Art Foundation School Hop is an important youth initiative aimed at education and outreach to Toronto’s secondary-school students. In the face of reduced funding for extracurricular activities and diminished focus on art education in public schools, this free half-day program offers a unique opportunity for a younger generation to participate in the cultural landscape of Toronto.

Since 2003, this semi-annual program has hosted an ever-increasing number of students (approximately 1,600 in the 2012–2013 school year) at Toronto studios and galleries on tours led by local artists and curators. The program provides free bus transportation, pays for artists and curators to lead discussions with students, and gifts each participant with a current issue of Canadian Art magazine and a sketchbook to continue their explorations.

In this program, participating students are exposed to different artistic practices from diverse cultural backgrounds. They visit commercial galleries and artist-run spaces, and they meet professional artists and curators. The program encourages a free exchange of ideas about art, culture and society, and it establishes a historical context for approaching contemporary art practices.

School Hop gives priority and vital program access to the most needy schools in the region, with more than half of the participating Greater Toronto Area schools coming from low-income neighbourhoods or including at-risk youth. Through continuous feedback from teachers and galleries, we are constantly improving the program, its accessibility and its ability to meet crucial needs of the community.

2015 Spring School Hop Dates

Images Festival: April 14, 15, 16 & 17, 2015
Contact Photography Festival: May 12, 13, 14 & 15, 2015

To register your class for a School Hop, fill out our online registration form.

For more information, please email Marie-Camille Lalande at schoolhop@canadianart.ca or call her at (416) 368-8854 ext. 119.

We are now accepting applications for the 2015 Canadian Art Foundation Editorial Residency. The residency is a national prize awarded annually to a current undergraduate, graduate or other post-secondary student with an interest in developing expertise in the realm of professional art-magazine publishing. Now in its 11th year, the prize awards an 11-week summer residency at Canadian Art, along with a $7,000 prize. The winner will hone writing and editing skills while learning production procedures for online and print media at Canadian Art. This introduction to art-magazine publishing and writing is intended to foster new editorial and critical talent, and to provide hands-on experience working in the field.

The 2014 residency was won by emerging curator, writer and art-history student Natasha Chaykowski, who said of her experience:

Being the editorial resident at Canadian Art provided me with an unparalleled and rare opportunity to learn about the production of print media. Having only previously worked with online publications, I found this to be an incredibly formative and instructive experience. In addition to learning about magazine production, I was also able to further develop my writing style and hone editing skills—both of which are essential for working in publishing specifically, but also in the arts more generally. The skills I gained this summer at Canadian Art have already been and will continue to be proven invaluable.

To apply, send a 500-word review of a contemporary-art exhibition, a list of titles of recent academic and/or professional writing on art, a cover letter and a one-page CV.

Send applications to residency@canadianart.ca by 5 p.m. EDT on Thursday, April 2, 2015.

At RBC our support of the arts has been a longstanding priority, which is why we are pleased to continue our long-term partnership with the Canadian Art Foundation and support Gallery Hop Vancouver. RBC knows emerging artists need our help, which is why we focus on artists in the early stages of their careers through the RBC Emerging Artists Project. This project is about more than just financial support. Whether it is through mentorship, programming, providing access to a broader audience or facilitating awards and prizes, we support up-and-coming artists to help them gain national recognition for their talent as they bridge the gap from emerging to established.
