From May 4 to November 27, 2016
At Musée de Lachine
MONTRÉAL, May 5, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Under the title Unspoken Words, Musée de Lachine is launching a project in three concurrent parts: two exhibitions and a residency program, all dealing with the question of words and writing. For the first part, the curator Eve Katinoglou has selected works from the Musée's collection in which different forms of writing appear. The exhibition Unspoken Words brings together silent variations on words and language.
The second part of the project revolves around a work in the Musée plein air de Lachine collection, Regard sur le fleuve, by Lisette Lemieux. The exhibition The Essence of Words, curated by Laurier Lacroix, focuses attention on a number of works by the sculptor that use signs specific to writing.
During the residency program that constitutes the third part, the writers and artists Marc-Antoine K. Phaneuf, Daniel Canty and Jean-Philippe Luckhurst-Cartier will each spend a month working in one of the Musée's historic buildings. The result of their creative efforts will be a variety of original literary objects, written traces – persistent or ephemeral – performances and free-ranging narratives.
Words, letters, signs, words written, drawn, photographed, shaped, proclaimed, whispered; the works of the project Unspoken Words do not tell the whole story, but they refuse to stay silent.
Opening May 4 at Musée de Lachine, located at 1, Chemin du Musée, corner Rue Saint‑Patrick.
