About

The Fondation Phi’s Education and Public Engagement team invites parents, friends and children to its Family Open House, which will take place on Sunday, August 18, from 12:30 to 4:30 PM. Discover our exhibition Yoko Ono: LIBERTÉ CONQUÉRANTE/GROWING FREEDOM through our Family Activity Kit and take part in our art workshop The World Is Full of Everything It Needs, which will be offered on a drop-in basis all afternoon.

During The World Is Full of Everything It Needs, each participant will receive a grapefruit. Participants must think of places, actions and objects that will be inscribed on the skin of their grapefruit with a marker. Through a game of association, the words on the fruits will become tangible instructions, partitions or poems: little works of art you can take home and eat!

The World is Full of Everything It Needs was developed in collaboration with Montreal-based artist karen elaine spencer.
