All-Nighter at the Musée d'art contemporain

MONTREAL, Feb. 23 /CNW Telbec/ - For the upcoming seventh All-Nighter, the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal is proud to join with the Montreal High Lights Festival in presenting a program revolving around the colour white on the night of February 27 to 28, from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. Admission is free!


In the foyer, the white panels of the Capture project will pick up images and electro pop music computer-generated via a white keyboard. Capture offers an ironic response to MP3 downloads: a concert so long no one can listen to it all. It was created during an SAT (Société des arts technologiques) artistic residency.


The fanciful, anachronistic world of Marcel Dzama has earned the artist a worldwide reputation. This survey reveals a hauntingly outrageous universe inhabited by albino bats, among other creatures. Etienne Zack's comically subversive paintings sweep us up into the creative process, from the blank canvas to the gallery walls. With their human, animal and organic overtones, Luanne Martineau's hybrid works, often made of pink and white felt, create tension between arts-and-crafts materials and organic subjects.

From the Permanent Collection, Major Gifts presents seven exceptional works generously donated in the last three years, including the dresses, in shades of white, of Anselm's Kiefer's Die Frauen der Antike. Cubes, Blocks and Other Spaces, featuring a neon sculpture by Keith Sonnier, among other works, offers an alternative view of the Collection through a reading of the urban, architectural and media frameworks that dominate modern life.

Film screening

In Beverley Webster Rolph Hall, the Projections series presents Mamori, 2009, 8 min, an abstract short film directed by Montréal experimental filmmaker Karl Lemieux and produced by the National Film Board. Mamori takes its title from the place in the Amazon forest where the artist recorded various textures and transformations of light. In black and white.

Art workshop

Giant origami icebergs will be made by workshop participants. Some sculptures will become part of a collective work incorporated into the Capture installation in the museum foyer, while others can be taken home. For all, with family or friends. Length: 60 min. Schedule: 7 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Ice-wine bar

Warm up with a drink of the apple ice wine Neige, produced by Face cachée de la pomme and available for purchase on the site.

A new page in history is waiting to be filled in at the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal. Suggestion: wear white. And except for the ice wine, it's all free!
