As part of the Geopoetics cultural activity program especially designed to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation, the Art Gallery and Pointe-Claire Cultural Centre, Stewart Hall are pleased to invite you to a picnic where you can spend the afternoon with artists Guillaume La Brie, Mathieu Lacroix, Véronique Lépine, Marie-Hélène Plante, Edouard Pretty and Proulx Rousseau, members of the Pique-Nique Collective.
Founded in 2001 out of a desire to create works of art outdoors, the Pique-Nique Collective steps outside traditional visual arts venues and embeds itself in other spaces. Its members meet up for one day to create in a spirit of spontaneity and playfulness. Without any defined plans, they each experience through their meetups different adventures inspired by the places they occupy. Despite a lack of a clear strategy, their ephemeral and experimental works are always in perfect and unexpected harmony with each other.
