Les voisins
Theatre Desjardins, Cegep Andre-Laurendeau, 1111 Lapierre
Avec Claude Despins, Roger La Rue, Henri Chassé, Simon Lacroix, Isabelle Vincent, Sarah Laurendeau, Guillermina Kerwin et Kathleen Fortin
Les voisins est une pièce d’une grande intelligence, remplie d’humour et de douceur, qui montre des personnages qui n’ont rien à dire, mais qui le disent tout de même pour oublier les silences et les introspections. Les auteurs jettent un regard acide et cinglant sur la vie de banlieue, son folklore matériel omniprésent et ses drames existentiels.

Musée d'Art Contemporain de Montréal, 185 Ste Catherine est; ...
76 days
50 artists and collectives
25 Canadian artists (16 from Québec)
23 new works
22 countries (Australia, Belarus, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Iran, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Palestine, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom and Unites States)
4 curators: Gregory Burke, Peggy Gale, Lesley Johnstone and Mark Lanctôt
3 publications
La Biennale de Montréal is pleased to announce the artists who will take part in its next edition. Entitled L’avenir (looking forward), BNLMTL 2014 looks at the ways in which contemporary artists give form to the idea of what is to come. It combines a multisited exhibition, publications and a dynamic series of performances, film screenings, talks, tours, conferences and experiences. L’avenir (looking forward) was conceptualized by Gregory Burke and Peggy Gale, and developed by a team of four accomplished curators including Lesley Johnstone and Mark Lanctôt of the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, who worked in close collaboration with Sylvie Fortin, Executive and Artistic Director of La Biennale de Montréal. BNLMTL 2014 is presented by La Biennale de Montréal and co-produced with the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.
This fall, Montréal residents and visitors will have the opportunity to encounter works by some 50 artists working in 22 countries. Of these, 23 are new productions. At the Musée d’art contemporain, BNLMTL 2014’s main venue, L’avenir (looking forward) will propose some 35 experiences. New projects by Krzysztof Wodiczko and Isabelle Hayeur are being coproduced with Quartier des Spectacles Partnership. Other works will draw artistic itineraries around the city, in different art organizations and in public space.
The exhibition includes many new productions, variously supported and funded by BNLMTL 2014.
L’avenir (looking forward): AN INVITATION TO PONDER WHAT IS TO COME
BNLMTL 2014 examines how contemporary artists give form to the idea of what is to come. This theme is particularly well suited to the development of an intriguing exhibition. It also builds on a common practice, for who has never puzzled over the future?
The exhibition shifts between assessment and anticipation. Clearly grounded in the now, informed by echoes of the past, it looks forward to what is to come, striving to open up an expanded range of options and rekindle some that may have been prematurely extinguished. Through a broad range of works and media, including film and video, sculpture, photography, painting, installation, performance and new media, L’avenir (looking forward) promises viewers powerful experiences: moments for contemplation, invitations to wonderment and occasions for exchange. Some works issue a call to action. Others give us the opportunity to glimpse the extent of our own power, to imagine new worlds and new ways of being in the world.
Polish-born, US-based artist Krzysztof Wodiczko received the Hiroshima Prize in 1998 for his contribution as an artist to world peace. He is world-renowned for his large-scale slide and video projections on architectural facades and monuments. He has realized over eighty such public projections, which often give visibility and voice to precarious or marginalized communities.
Isabelle Hayeur is a digital image artist recognized for her large-sized photographic montages, videos and site-specific installations, in which she highlights urban blights and sprawl, as well as post-industrial society's pitfalls.
Montréal audiences will have a chance to renew their acquaintance with some of their favourite international artists. They will be treated to the North American premiere of Shirin Neshat’s latest film and a recent installation by Thomas Hirschhorn. There will also be exciting discoveries and welcome rediscoveries. From the Arctic Perspective Initiative collective to the Second Life scifi-aboriginal narratives of Skawennati, from the playful economic speculations of Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens to Hajra Waheed’s new archi-sculptural explorations, BNLMTL 2014 will provide the opportunity to discover the works of Montréal artists who have, thus far, remained largely invisible in their home town despite having significant international profiles.
Miami artist Jillian Mayer and Los Angeles’s Andrea Bowers take on the ethos of our camera-phone and social media universe, delving into the texts and images that we produce and trade with our communities. A simple selfie or a few characters can have dire consequences in this high-stakes, fast-paced new frontier.
The environment figures prominently in the exhibition. Global warming, the Arctic, biodiversity and water rights connect the work of a number of artists in BNLMTL 2014 and much of contemporary practice. In her recent video essay Deep Weather, 2013, Ursula Biemann beautifully connects tar sands exploitation in Northern Canada to the impending submersion of Bengla and the related notion of water as territory of citizenship. Berlin artist Klara Hobza’s open-ended quixotic project, Diving through Europe—a lifelong project that will take her from Rotterdam to Constanța, Romania—deftly and humourously touches on old histories of conquest, shifting political alliances and water quality.
The economy — as prophecy and speculation — is taken on in a number of projects. Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens’s The Prophets, 2013, an installation of small whimsical sculptures made from ordinary household materials, turn graphs into models, giving physical form to economic abstractions. Goldin+Senneby propose an interplay between two modes of speculation: theatre and algorithmic trading models. For BNLMTL 2014, they directly, literally connect the exhibition to financial trading: they use the exhibition as a laboratory for developing algorithmic trading models with their collaborator Paul Leong, a New York-based investment banker working for Blackstone, who developed a trading strategy identifying early signs of mergers and acquisitions. This speculation’s financial performance determines the duration of their exhibition.
Accordingly, BNLMTL 2014 will offer us varied opportunities to see the latest works of world-famous artists and immerse ourselves in the universe of artists from here and elsewhere. “This is an exciting, surprising selection of artists. Some are very well known; others will be discoveries for all but a few specialists. It’s been a privilege to work with the curatorial team and see them develop this selection of works. Their process was shaped by absolute rigour, curiosity and generosity, a willingness to stretch beyond their comfort zone, and a total commitment to deliver an event that will leave its mark,” adds Fortin.
The 2014 edition of BNLMTL marks a radical shift in a bold direction. It is the first step in the vigorous repositioning of BNLMTL, a biennial event, as an international reference. Building on a strategic multiyear co-production partnership with the Musée d’art contemporain, and engaged in innovative collaborations with over 15 local, national and international institutions, BNLMTL 2014 is an event of unprecedented artistic ambition and scale in Canada. Its 2016 edition will further confirm BNLMTL’s importance and position it as North America’s foremost international biennale. By 2018, BNLMTL will play an influential role in the network of international biennales and will be on the short list of must-sees.
For art enthusiasts, biennales provide a compelling reason to visit.
The mission of La Biennale de Montréal is to foster, support, interpret and disseminate the most current visual arts practices by producing the biennial event BNLMTL. All of the initiatives of La Biennale de Montréal are premised on risk and experimentation. Its goal is to support daring, thought-provoking art practices and curatorial projects while offering the public a diversity of experiences.

Van Gogh to Kandinsky: Impressionism to Expressionism. 1900 to 1914
Montreal Museum of Fine Arts
A century after the outbreak of World War I, this exceptional exhibition of over one hundred paintings and an equal number of drawings and prints executed by the greatest avant-garde figures of the time, sheds new light on the extraordinary artistic cross-currents presiding over the major developments in modern art that took place in Germany and France between 1900 and 1914. First on view in Switzerland at the Kunsthaus Zürich, and then at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts’ showing of the exhibition will be distinguished not only for its exclusive presentation of major works, but also for its wealth of documentation, including more than 200 photographs, postcards, stereographic images, magazines and newspapers focussing on Paris in 1900, as well as chronicling World War I, providing a broad historical context for this period of intense creativity.
The art produced by the French and German avant-garde between the end of the nineteenth century and the outbreak of World War I is widely celebrated today. Its creators were artists renowned in France - Cézanne, Gauguin, Matisse, Picasso, Signac, Van Gogh, Vlaminck – and in Germany - Heckel, Kandinsky, Kirchner, Klee, Nolde, Pechstein. Their works, distinguished by their originality, power and beauty, are considered among the early masterpieces of modern art.
The exhibition is organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and the Kunsthaus Zürich, in collaboration with the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Les lents de nature/Nature's Slowpokes
Biodôme de Montréal, 3000 Viau
Meet the Sloths
Dépêchez-vous de ralentir à ESPACE POUR LA VIE
Espace pour la vie vous invite à changer de rythme en vous immergeant dans l’univers des Lents de nature, à l’honneur au Biodôme. À l’origine du thème de l’année, les paresseux sont les véritables vedettes de l’événement. Espace pour la vie nous offre une occasion unique de les voir de près et d’apprécier cette rare proximité avec l’animal au cœur d’un habitat temporaire spécialement conçu pour eux. Dans un espace propice à la détente, l’expérience favorise l’observation d’espèces qui incarnent la lenteur. Paresseux à deux doigts, tortue charbonnière et lézard fouette-queue émaillent un parcours riche en découvertes où prendre son temps multiplie le plaisir des sens.
Un parcours qui donne le sourire
Création de l’artiste invitée Marie-Claire Lagacé et fruit de la collaboration avec l’équipe du Biodôme, l’itinéraire des Lents de nature propose de revisiter le Biodôme avec un nouveau regard, inspiré par la lenteur, dans une nature où le plus fort n’est pas forcément le plus rapide, mais plutôt le mieux adapté.
Sur le parcours, dans un espace bigarré et accueillant, les sonorités de la forêt tropicale ruissellent des douches sonores installées çà et là. On y circule lentement à travers une installation suspendue composée de multiples filins et de notes flottantes qui distillent des informations et des anecdotes sur les différentes formes de lenteur des espèces dans une mise en lumière ensoleillée.
Dans l’amphithéâtre, on goûte la lenteur en prenant part à L’air du temps, une création musicale collective basée sur l’histoire d’un paresseux, mise en image par la musique, le mime et l’expression corporelle. Dans une ambiance détendue et participative, un maître d’œuvre orchestre une symphonie doublée d’une chorégraphie créatrice de liens.
Au bout de ce parcours, l’habitat des paresseux, espace accueillant et enveloppant, donne envie de se poser pour contempler quatre magnifiques spécimens. Une proximité inédite avec un animal fascinant qui remet en question notre conception même du temps! Comme lui, on peut y flâner, s’allonger et se détendre. Et puis, on peut rêver en laissant les animateurs nous raconter sa fabuleuse histoire.
Inspirée par le mouvement slow life, Marie-Claire Lagacé veut faire naître chez le visiteur une connexion avec le paresseux. Conceptrice, directrice artistique et scénographe talentueuse, elle imagine ainsi un parcours qui prédispose petits et grands à entrer calmement dans l’habitat du paresseux et sortir de cette expérience le sourire aux lèvres.
Des lents de nature étonnants et intrigants
Animal arboricole et prince de la lenteur, les paresseux du Biodôme étonnent par leurs caractéristiques: des pattes avant à deux doigts munis de puissantes griffes; des dents dépourvues d’émail qui poussent constamment; un estomac similaire à celui des ruminants; une température corporelle variable comme celle des reptiles. De quoi intriguer bon nombre de visiteurs!
Chaque paresseux du Biodôme a sa petite histoire, mais la plus originale est sans doute celle d’une femelle née en 2008. Au moment de son sevrage, la petite a commencé à explorer les alentours sans sa mère, mais elle est tombée et s’est fracturé le fémur. Les nombreux soins prodigués pour sa guérison, sa réadaptation et son éducation lui ont permis de développer et d’entretenir un lien privilégié avec l’équipe des Collections vivantes du Biodôme.
En prenant le temps de ralentir dans ce lieu exceptionnel de découvertes, on aperçoit d’autres espèces animales étonnantes comme la tortue charbonnière à pattes rouges et le lézard fouette-queue.
Espace pour la vie regroupe sur un même site le Biodôme, l’Insectarium, le Jardin botanique et le Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan. Ces quatre institutions prestigieuses de la Ville de Montréal forment le plus important complexe en sciences de la nature au Canada. Ensemble, elles amorcent un mouvement audacieux, créatif et urbain, qui repense le lien entre l’humain et la nature, et cultive une nouvelle façon de vivre.

April 17, 2014 - October 26, 2014
Prendre le temps…
Espace pour la vie
Qui n’a pas envie de ralentir un peu… de prendre son temps Pour mieux apprécier la nature et redécouvrir le plaisir de ralentir, Espace pour la vie choisit d’étirer l’année sur six saisons. Ce nouveau rapport au temps et avec la nature sera marqué par quatre mises en scène des plus originales, véritables invitations à modérer notre allure et à comprendre combien il est précieux de ralentir. Les arts s’invitent au jardin et enchantent les nombreuses floraisons au fil de l’été; Les lents de nature vous convient à un nez à nez avec les paresseux au Biodôme; Les Siestes Musicales et Les Escales Sonores nous coupent de l’agitation du monde au coeur des jardins de l’Insectarium ; des Vertiges nous plongent au beau milieu d’interrogations sur le temps au Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan.
Les arts s’invitent au jardin
Tous les dimanches au Jardin botanique, entre le 18 mai et le 31 août, poètes, peintres, musiciens, conteurs et danseurs apparaissent dans les jardins au fil des floraisons et servent de révélateurs à leur grande beauté. On s’installe confortablement dans des chaises Adirondack pour écouter un quatuor à cordes entouré de lilas, de la poésie romantique le long du Ruisseau fleuri, des contes dans le Jardin Leslie-Hancock, des musiciens installés dans des barques sur les étangs ou on regarde du tango libre dans la Roseraie...
dans la série Sur la grande scène: Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà, le 18 mai; Michel Faubert, le 27 juillet; Marie-Josée Lord, le 3 août ; et Pierre Lapointe, le 31 août.
En 2014, Espace pour la vie vous invite à prendre le temps…
Les lents de nature en vedette au Biodôme
Du 7 juin au 26 octobre, Les lents de nature sont à l’honneur au Biodôme. Les visiteurs ont l’occasion de changer de rythme tout au long d’un parcours qui s’étire de l’accueil jusqu’à un habitat entièrement recréé, véritable installation sculpturale inspirée de l’environnement
naturel des paresseux. Cet espace enveloppant, propice à la détente, favorise l’observation de différentes espèces animales qui incarnent la lenteur, dont quatre paresseux à deux doigts, des iguanes et des tortues. La visite se poursuit avec plusieurs arrêts au coeur des écosystèmes, pour multiplier le plaisir des sens. Plus loin, dans l’amphithéâtre, on devient les instruments d’un chef d’orchestre et on transforme les sons des animaux en une création musicale et collective étonnante.
Les Siestes Musicales et Les Escales Sonores à l’Insectarium
Tous les samedis après-midi, du 21 juin au 30 août, c’est le temps de faire des Siestes Musicales à quelques pas de l’Insectarium, sous les arbres ou confortablement assis au milieu des jardins à papillons. Au son d’oeuvres musicales bigarrées, on se laisse bercer le temps de se brancher au calme de la nature et de se couper de l’agitation du monde extérieur. Dès le mois d’août, c’est le moment de parcourir Les Escales Sonores, quatre environnements faits de matériaux tel que le liège et la toile à l’intérieur desquels résonnent d’apaisantes compositions sonores originales inspirées des insectes pollinisateurs. Au gré du passage d’une alcôve à l’autre, les visiteurs découvrent des plantes nectarifères au rythme de douces mélodies.
Vertiges et Lumières de corail au Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan
Depuis la nuit des temps, l’Homme cherche à le saisir, à l’accélérer, voire à l’arrêter. Mais qu’est-ce que le temps? À travers le spectacle Vertiges, deuxième événement immersif créé sur mesure pour le Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan, les visiteurs sont plongés dans une expérience visuelle, musicale et poétique sur notre rapport au temps.
Vertiges invite à la réflexion et provoque des discussions autour des mystères du temps.
Pour quelques jours seulement, du 17 au 27 avril, Espace pour la vie présente en grande première montréalaise, sur le dôme du Théâtre du Chaos du Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan,
Lumières de corail, un film contemplatif et immersif de l’artiste australienne Lynette Wallworth.
Phénomène méconnu, les coraux luminescents offrent un spectacle fascinant et touchant
qui permet de ressentir ce qui lie l’humain à cette précieuse communauté vivante de l’océan.
Une invitation à se laisser bercer, dans une ambiance sonore enveloppante, au rythme des doux mouvements de ces mystérieuses créatures marines bioluminescentes.
