The Ethos of the Foundation is a series of live events and new content that showcases our notion of care and service, as a holistic approach to presentation practices in contemporary art from the ground up and the top down. It features our research, philosophy, operations and programming. It showcases the talent and truly innovative initiatives that distinguish the Foundation, particularly within the Canadian context.
The third event of this series, Experimenting Interpretation: Gestures, Movements, Dialogue, is a live presentation by Pohanna Pyne Feinberg, artist, educator and professor at Dawson College, and Marie-Hélène Lemaire, head of education at the PHI Foundation. They present a research project that they co-led in the exhibition Jasmina Cibic: Everything That You Desire and Nothing That You Fear (2018-2019). In the spirit of accessibility and service, this project aimed at multiplying the possible approaches that participants can employ when interpreting artworks during a group visit by experimenting with sensory learning, gestures and movements.
