Slāv  Resistance Collective discussion

As part of the Quebec Public Interest Research Group (QPIRG) DisOrientation series, the Slāv Resistance Collective will be discussing the cancellation of Slāv, created and produced by Betty Bonifassi and Robert Lepage. The theatre production was cancelled in June in response to the demands of protestors and critics, who argued that Slāv was created out of cultural appropriation. The discussion will expand on why the show was cancelled, what it meant for the production team and what can be done to avoid similar instances in the future.

When: Tuesday, Sept. 18, 6:30 p.m.

Where: QPIRG-Concordia, 2100 Guy St., Suite 204

Admission is free.


CULTURE

TOPO, a digital arts and technology laboratory in the Plateau, will be showcasing the work of art duo Et tu, Machine in their vitrine until Oct. 13. CULTURE celebrates the legalisation of the recreational use of cannabis and aims to foster a discussion about the social stigma surrounding cannabis use. According to TOPO, “Et tu, Machine is concerned about the opportunism of corporate production and distribution companies in collisions with the state.”

When: Now until Oct. 13
Where: TOPO, 5445 Gaspé Ave., Suite 107-B
Admission is free.

Toronto artists Keight MacLean and Moira Ness combine their interdisciplinary backgrounds in Darling. MacLean’s modern take on historical portraiture is juxtaposed with Ness’s handwritten text to express notions of love, loss and longing.

When: Now until Oct. 14
Where: BBAM! Gallery, 808 Atwater Ave.
Admission is free.

What we all knew but couldn’t articulate

Featuring Marcela Armas, Daniel Monroy Cuevas, Lorena Mal, Armando Rosales,
and Rogelio Sosa, What we all knew but couldn’t articulate marks the closing of a year-long curatorial internship between the FOFA Gallery and SOMA México. The project aimed to foster cultural exchange between Mexico City and Montreal, and the exhibition showcases the engaging artworks of the five artists that explore this [lack of] connection.  According to FOFA, “What we all knew but couldn’t articulate seeks to bridge the space between the gallery, the university, and the city, while also weaving connections and blurring the boundaries between Mexico, Canada, and the neighbour these two political entities share.”

When: Now until Oct. 19
Where: FOFA Gallery, 1515 St-Catherine St. W
Admission is free.
