Evening Launch TD Cultural Tuesday - Karl Lemieux

Jan 9, 2018
Doors open: 6 p.m.
Performance: 7 p.m.

To debut its winter program, the TD Cultural Tuesdays invite you to an experimental evening in the company of Karl Lemieux, Alexandre St-Onge and Roger Tellier-Craig. Using five 16mm projectors, they will present Unzip Violence, a cinematographic and performative installation that combines sounds and images. 

The event is the occasion to celebrate in a festive atmosphere the launch of our new programming at the heart of the Anthologie exhibition, which brings to the public an impressive selection of monumental artworks. 

A brand new collaboration with Le Vin dans les Voiles, a sommelier company from Montreal, will offer a unique wine selection every evening. Born from an infinite passion for gastronomy and its members, the oenophile company advocates the artisanal approach of the finest wine producers, celebrating their devotion and their limitless creativity. 

Known for his work with direct and hybrid performance video projections, Karl Lemieux produced several short films that include Passage (2008) and Quiet Zone (2015). He recently produced the feature film Maudite Poutine (2016), for which he received critical acclaim and recognition from the public, notably at the Venice Film Festival and at the Gala du Cinéma Québécois. Lemieux is also known for his ongoing visual collaboration since 2010 with the Godspeed You ! Black Emperor group.  

The purpose of the TD Cultural Tuesdays is to bring contemporary visual art into dialogue with other artistic practices. From 6 to 9, these gatherings take the form of events allowing the convergence of different audiences in a friendly atmosphere.
