Happening: Home Canning
Sunday, March 11, 2018
1 PM to 5 PM
On Sunday March 11, join DHC/ART Education for a Happening! Co-hosted with local artist Raphaëlle de Groot, the Happening marks the end of the workshop Home Canning by offering a special edition of it titled Conversation with the leftovers.
For this event, Raphaëlle will create a sculpture by assembling objects and materials from our “pantry of communal supplies”, initially used for the artistic cannings of the Home Canning workshop. Everyone is invited to participate in this collective artwork.
The Happening is ongoing (from 1 to 5 PM), bilingual, free of charge, and open to all visitors. No reservation is required.
Home Canning is the result of a collaboration between Raphaëlle de Groot and DHC/ART Education, in conjunction with the exhibition L’OFFRE.
The Happening will take place in the Education Room @ 465 St-Jean Street.
On March 14, Raphaëlle de Groot will present her recent work as part of the Conférences ICI program, organized by UQAM. The lecture will be given in French.

The Festival international du film sur l’art (FIFA) will present the world premiere of the documentary Subsistences on March 17 at Concordia University (J.A. DeSève Cinema). The fruit of a year in the life of artist Raphaëlle de Groot in Minganie, Quebec, Subsistences draws a poetic documentary picture focusing on the cultural, social, and environmental aspects of a far-removed region.
