Mandate

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.

Group Visits and Workshops

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 L’OFFRE and Bill Viola: Naissance à rebours also have the opportunity to take part in the art workshop Home canning (PDF), designed by Raphaëlle de Groot 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.

Reservations

Reservations are required for all visits with a DHC/ART educator; please consult our online booking calendar and make your reservation with our reservation form.

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.

Educational Tools

MovementsThe goal of this short document is to assist visitors in exploring the ideas presented in the exhibition in more depth. L’OFFRE: Movements (PDF) and Bill Viola: 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!

Traces Project

We invite you to take part in our public project Traces: PliablePliable is inspired by Taiwanese artist Lee Mingwei’s Money for Art series, in which $10 bills are folded into origami and offered to different people, who then have to choose to either keep the artwork the artist has created or spend the money. Visitors are invited to select a piece of paper and write down a short sentence or create a drawing in response to the exhibition L’OFFRE.
