New pavilion at MNBAQ

Openinto the public on June 24, 2016, the new 15,000-square-metre extension to the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec will showcase Quebec art from 1960 to the present day.

artist’s rendering of new pavilion

One example will be Jean-Paul Riopelle’s massive 40.2-metre-long work, Tribute to Rosa Luxembourg (1992), which will be featured in a passageway between the old and new pavilions.

By almost doubling the square footage of the museum, more room is created to showcase the museum’s Inuit collection and its collections of decorative and design objects.

The new pavilion is sited very visibly along Quebec City’s Grande Allée, and it has a 250-person auditorium for use by museum partners. Designed by the prestigious Rotterdam-based firm Office for Metropolitan Architecture, the extension will cost more than $100 million.

AHA and Urban Sketchers member Jane Hannah alerts us to an event this Sunday, February 28. She writes:

On February 28th we will meet at the main entrance of La Grande Bibliothèque when the library opens at 10 am (475, boulevard De Maisonneuve Est). This a grand place for drawing spaces, people, views from the windows, etc. Drawing is permitted inside the library. At noon we can go out in the neighbourhood for lunch and then sketch some more in the library. At 3:30. pm we’ll meet back at the main entrance, find a coffee shop and have a review of sketches.

For more information about the group, please visit their website.

The Grande Bibliothèque is well worth a visit. Membership is free to all residents of Quebec. An audioguide is available in English and French to orient you to the space and its collection. A wide variety of seating can be found, including an area that provides a vista of urban landscape, complete with balconies, alleys, clotheslines and garages.

Until August 28, reservations are available to experience The Library at Night, “a virtual exploration of 10 of the world’s most fascinating libraries. It was designed by the Ex Machina production company and its artistic director, multidisciplinary artist Robert Lepage, based on an original idea by BAnQ.

The Artist Project


Thank you to AHA member Monique Verdier who reminds us about The Artist Project, an initiative by New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. Season 5 is scheduled to begin soon, but the website allows you to access the first four seasons with a simple click on the MENU.

From March 2015 to June 2016, we will invite 120 artists—local, national, and global—to choose individual works of art or galleries that spark their imaginations. In this online series, artists reflect on what art is, what inspires them from across 5,000 years of art, and in so doing, they reveal the power of a museum and The Met. Their unique and passionate ways of seeing and experiencing art encourage all museum visitors to look in a personal way.

This news from Marie-Michèle Fillion of YES Montreal:

Here is a  quick note to let you know about the first of several essential artists’ workshops we have planned for the Winter/Spring 2016 season.  Craft Your Brand: Find Your Voice, takes place this Wednesday, January 27th and it is one workshop you will not want to miss.

As artists, producing innovative and impactful work is the result of profound self-expression. Daring to be seen and heard for who you truly are, without inhibition. This is why crafting a brand that reflects your personal message to the world is paramount to achieving your audience’s attention.

Join our special guest speaker, Sabrina Prioletta (Marketing & Brand Strategist, Siva Marketing), as she will help you discover and leverage brand development techniques, while exploiting the power of your own brand.

Come on down yourself or help us spread the word to people in your network.

The cost is $20.00, whether you attend in-center or via the live online webinar.  Pre-registration is strongly recommended and you can click here to register on line, in-person at the centre, or by calling our front desk.

If you’re coming, don’t forget to bring your business cards for networking exchanges.

See you soon,

Marie-Michele Fillion
