Mandate

Our education department 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 Fondation, we encourage critical dialogue informed by diverse perspectives.

The education department’s visits, workshops and activities are offered free of charge.

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 Jasmina Cibic: Everything That You Desire and Nothing That You Fear also have the opportunity to take part in the art workshop A Dance of Symbols, designed by the artists Leisure and the education department.

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 an educator; please consult our online booking calendar and make your reservation with our reservation form.

Please note that groups planning a visit without an educator are required to contact us in advance in order for us to advise security prior to arrival.

Lunch Hour Visits

Wednesday to Friday at 12:15 PM.
Visit in English and/or French, depending on the participants. All visitors are invited to participate. No reservation required. Free.

Educational Tools

MovementsThe goal of this short document is to assist visitors in exploring the ideas presented in the exhibition in more depth. Jasmina Cibic: Movements (PDF) can be used as inspiration for a pre or post-visit discussion, or even as an assignment based on the visit.

Blog: Our 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 new public project Traces: Veiled/Unveiled. For this exhibition, our Traces space is transformed into a photo booth. Play with the curtains to choose your background, choose one accessory and strike a pose for the camera!
