Family Open House
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.
No need for reservations!
karen elaine spencer
born: year of the silverfish
early childhood: softly sang stories to crumpled-up tissues in the back seat of the family car
adolescence: ran away from home to study the fine art of forgetfulness
at present: creates workshops for artists she admires. infiltrates government offices, train stations, metros, and parks to transmit secret messages. she is a rambler, loiterer, metro rider, dream listener, onion peeler, and sitter. she paints, writes, points, and pirouettes.
