Ephemeral Public Art - Discussion March 6th 2019 at CCFM

What is ephemeral public art? What kind of challenges does it bring up? How to design a work that will survive the weather? All these questions and many others will be addressed in Oeuvres en contexte: art extérieur éphémère. Presented by the Réseau N.O. in partnership with CCFM and La Maison des artistes, this discussion will revolve around the themes of public art and the context of outside presentation. Several Winnipeg contributors will discuss the issues in a bilingual discussion moderated by Émilie Lemay. After the roundtable, the discussion will continue with an invitation to creation by artist-in-residence Aurélia Bizouard (Vancouver). Her projections of lights and paintings on glass invite us to take a new look at the places we live in collectively. On March 14, the CCFM’s outdoor public spaces will be reinvested and come alive to reflect the meetings of our various communities as part of the 21st edition of Rendez-Vous de la Francophonie.


Qu’est-ce que l’art public éphémère? Quels sont ses défis ? Comment concevoir une œuvre qui survivra aux intempéries ? Toutes ces questions et bien d’autres seront abordées dans Œuvres en contexte : art extérieur éphémère. Présentée par le Réseau N.O. en partenariat avec le CCFM et La Maison des artistes, cette discussion tournera autour des thèmes de l’art public et du contexte de présentation extérieur. Plusieurs intervenants de Winnipeg discuteront autour des enjeux dans une discussion bilingue animée par Émilie Lemay. Après la table ronde, la discussion se poursuivra avec une invitation à la création lancée par l’artiste en résidence, Aurélia Bizouard (Vancouver). Ses projections de lumières et peintures sur verre nous invitent à poser un nouveau regard sur les lieux que nous habitons collectivement. Le 14 mars prochain, les espaces publics extérieurs du CCFM seront réinvestis et prendront vie pour refléter les rencontres de nos diverses communautés dans le cadre de la 21e édition des Rendez-Vous de la Francophonie.

Visual Arts — Collective Creation

We would like people to connect with art, with themselves and to each other's. We believe this can happen by providing an immersive experience, by enabling people to create a work of art or to be part of it. The first step is to create the painting on a glass panel through which light will be projected. The designs on the glass are created by the artist Aurelia Bizouard around one major theme. The second step is to engage people in the creative process by having them paint and fill-out with colours the lines of light on a canvas (or a wall) from the projection of the glass artwork (the light projection will be on friday evening)
