Steve Bergeron La Tribune EXPO: Making beings

Originally from Rawdon, Moe Piuze has presented his artistic work in America and Europe, notably at the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art, the Art Museum of the University of Bogota and the Casablanca International Video Art Festival. He studied visual and media arts at Laval University and at the University of Quebec in Montreal. Since 2018, he has been creating assemblages that allow him to question the constant need to cobble together an identity. The exhibition thus takes a humorous look at the intimate and emotional aspect of two united themes: the house and the body. By fashioning dolls, the artist questions the life of a couple and the difficulty of being a son, a brother, a father, a husband all at the same time. Imaginary characters are thus constructed from materials found in the same domestic territory, such as old clothes, a sheet of car, photographs of a cemetery or a half-demolished barn.

Brimbelle is lugging around

Instead of putting on the Christmas lights as soon as Halloween is over, how about starting November differently? Because even if the pumpkins will leave tomorrow for the cauldron or the compost, the orange will remain in the Estrie region, so the theaters will be open. Brimbelle is also ready to entertain children with her new musical tour, Sur le chemin des saveurs, in which she goes on vacation aboard her small house on wheels.

The show will be presented to the Camillois de Saint-Camille on November 1 at 3 p.m. (minimum purchase of two tickets). Brimbelle will also be at the Pavillon des arts et de la culture in Coaticook on Sunday, November 8 at 3 p.m.

Virtual beehive

The Ruche d'Art at the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke has also gone virtual. The monthly group workshops therefore resumed on October 4, for a second season, and are taking place through the Zoom platform. Apart from the fact that each participant now creates from home, nothing has changed in the formula. Even the musical atmosphere, offered by Andy Bourgeois, is always included. The second meeting this fall is scheduled for November 1 at 1 p.m., on the theme of Recycled Creations . Since the activity is held at a distance, the organizers propose to prepare with a personal project in mind and by bringing together recycled materials, objects to reuse, materials already on hand or homemade. To find out more, visit the Facebook page of the MBAS Art Hive.

The activity is free.

Masked launch for Excavation & Poetry

The members of the Estrie group Excavation & Poésie invite all those interested to go in masks to their album launch on Saturday, October 31 at 8 p.m. at the Granada Theater. It goes without saying, will you respond in these times of pandemic. But this is a real masked ball for Halloween. Double masked, you will add, since it will also be necessary to wear the sanitary mask when moving around the room.

Despite everything, the literary folk quartet promises a frenzied evening to mark the realization of its album Emissaries, accompanied by a collection of poetry and published on October 1st. The group's signature is made up of sounds inspired by both folk, trad and Quebec song, to which are added socially engaged texts as well as performances where poetry and humor meet. Tickets on sale on Ovation. Admission is $ 25.

The launch and distribution of Emissaries was made possible thanks to a crowdfunding campaign conducted last spring that raised more than $ 6,000, with the initial target being $ 5,000.
