DHC/ART Education offers inclusive programming and innovative interpretive tools that encourage exploration and understanding of contemporary art. In providing platforms for exchange related to the exhibitions presented by the Foundation, we encourage critical dialogue informed by diverse perspectives.
DHC/ART Education’s visits, workshops and activities are offered free of charge.
We invite any group of ten people or more to reserve a guided visit with one of our educators. These visits are designed for groups of all types: primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, community centres and language schools, as well as the general public. Visits last 1½ hours.
Groups who reserve a guided visit of the exhibition Bharti Kher: Points de départ, points qui lient also have the opportunity to take part in the art workshop Something to Write Home About (PDF), designed by Emily Jan and DHC/ART Education.
Unique to each exhibition and developed in collaboration with Montreal-based artists, our workshops complement participants’ gallery experience through hands-on experimentation. A visit combined with a workshop lasts two hours.
Please note that groups planning a visit without a DHC/ART educator are required to contact us in advance in order for us to advise security prior to arrival.
Movements: The goal of this short document is to assist visitors in exploring the ideas presented in the exhibition in more depth. Bharti Kher: Movements (PDF) can be used as inspiration for a pre or post-visit discussion, or even as an assignment based on the visit.
Blog: DHC/ART educators regularly contribute to our blog with reflections on various subjects related to the exhibition, the artists, particular visits or workshops, art education, contemporary art practice, etc. Please share information about this lively and thought-provoking tool with your groups!
We invite you to take part in our public project Traces: Whereabouts (PDF). On one of the walls of the Traces space, you will find a mosaic of maps showing different ways of depicting Montreal throughout history: each of them represents the land under varying conditions and for different purposes. We invite you to intervene on these maps using stickers of familiar cartography symbols: the arrow and the Google location marker.
