ARTIST TALK with Katya Montaignac
From May 22nd - 31st 2009, DARE-DARE invites you to the Off-Biennial, an event that will showcase various unique artistic projects including performances, dance, installations and sculpture. The projects will take place in non-conventional public spaces in and around the Cabot Square as well as the Atwater Library, a church, Alexis Nihon Plaza, the bygone Forum, Ste-Catherine Street, etc. The 19 projects in the event will question, in humoristic, political or poetic ways, ideas surrounding work in the urban environment.
The Off-Biennial will also create a space for discussion and dialogue between the public, the artists, the community surrounding the Square and the representatives of the neighbourhood. Through conferences, panel discussions and workshops, the Off-Biennial wishes to promote a variety of view points by way of diverse discussion and shared artistic, historic, political and theoretical knowledge. The idea is to open a discourse on the various practices and to adapt them in the spirit of open source.
With the Dis/location project, now in its third phase, DARE-DARE is pursuing its mandate by creating an event full of ideas. By its very structure, DARE-DARE is continually open to infiltrations, multiplicities, contaminations, rootedness and seeks to be a part of its host neighbourhood.
For all interview inquiries with the coordination team or the participants please contact Janick Rousseau, firstname.lastname@example.org.
