Third edition of Music Video at the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal July 9 to September 28, 2008



    MONTREAL, July 9 /CNW Telbec/ - From July 9 to September 28, 2008, the
Musée d'art contemporain presents the third edition of Music Video, a program
of video clips screened as part of its Projections series.

    2008 edition

    Planned to tie in with the museum's inaugural Québec Triennial, which has
taken over all of its exhibition spaces, this third edition of Music Video
consists entirely of productions emanating from the local music scene in the
past three years. The program spotlights some of the artists and musicians who
give vitality to the city that has shaped them and nurtured their talent.
Fifteen titles in all, by thirteen Montréal directors: Ian Cameron, Geneviève
Albert, Benjamin Steiger Levine, Pascale Bussières and David Clermont-Béique,
Jérémie Saindon, Pedro Pires, Gabriel Coutu-Dumont, Louis-Philippe Eno,
Vincent Morisset, Sid-Z, Kaveh Nabatian and Dave Pawsey.
    Music Video is a coming together of artists and musicians who enjoy
experimenting collectively. According to program organizer Louise Simard,
"aside from the initial idea, and achieving the perfect balance between
concept and treatment, between image and music, a video's success depends on
sustaining energy from start to finish. And this energy often has its source
in the relationship between director and artist."
    From now through September 28, plug into that energy at the Musée d'art
contemporain.

    Music Video program

    Music Video is a program dedicated to the art of the music video, and to
the video creators who have reinvented the art of filmmaking and expanded the
scope of the visual arts. The museum's goal in presenting Music Video is to
illustrate the creative energy displayed in the music video field, raise the
profile of these highly inventive artists and showcase their works in a
contemporary art setting.

    The Musée d'art contemporain is located at 185 Sainte-Catherine Street
West, Place-des-Arts metro. Summer hours, until September 7 inclusive: Monday
through Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Wednesdays until 9 p.m. Admission:
Adults: $8, or $10 with the Wired to the MAC card that offers unlimited
admission to the Musée for one year, including Friday Nocturnes. Information:
