- Résidences et expositions
Bringing together eight Montréal artist-run centres (Galerie B-312, Centre Clark, DARE-DARE, Groupe Intervention Vidéo (GIV), La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse, OBORO, Perte de Signal and Vidéographe) and three Cuban venues for art (Artista X Artista, Avecez Art Space and Centro de Desarrollo de las Artes Visuales), the Montréal ~ Habana : Rencontres en art actuel / Encuentros de Arte Contemporáneo project is a contemporary art event aiming to promote intercultural exchanges through the dissemination and production of exhibitions, residencies, video projections and meetings between Cuban and Montréal artists and cultural workers.
Galerie B-312 is thrilled to join forces with seven Montreal artist-run centres and six Havanese partners as part of Montréal ~ Habana : Rencontres en art actuel / Encuentros de Arte Contemporáneo, an exchange project aimed at dissemination, production and dialogues between artists and cultural workers from La Habana and Montreal. In the spring of 2019, thirty-five Cuban artists and curators participated in the first Montreal iteration of the project through the presentation of residencies, exhibitions, video projections and guided tours. From October until December 2019, the Cuban centres Artista X Artista, Avecez Art Space and the Centro de Desarrollo de las Artes Visuales will welcome artists and curators from Montreal.
