Journées de la culture at the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal

MONTREAL, Sept. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - On Sunday, September 27, as part of this year's Journées de la Culture, the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal is offering a thematic program in tribute to Betty Goodwin, the grande dame of contemporary Canadian art who passed away in 2008.

Guided tours of the exhibition Betty Goodwin: A Critical Survey through the Prism of the Collection, showcasing about forty of her works, will be offered at 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.

To round out the exhibition, the documentary Betty Goodwin: Le coeur à l'âme (52 min), by Claude Laflamme, will be screened in the Gazoduc-TQM Room.

Finally, the Art Workshops are presenting Glove Prints, an activity inspired by Goodwin's 1970 work Gloves One, at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Participants will use a printing press to stamp distinct textures on cloth gloves pre-treated with gouache.
