Kent Monkman and Miss Chief Eagle Testickle (his "public persona" -- is facebook ever wrong?) are not new to Montreal. I will always remember his Dance of the Berdash as being by far the best thing in the Musée des Beaux-Arts in 2009. My Treaty Is With the Crown is more extensive, and, if possible, even more political than Dance of the Berdash.

Meet Brainbow Limb

Posted by Jasia / September 20, 2010


The first of many intervention-performance-happening-hard to describe but worth the extra breath to describe events by the Brainbow collective, Brainbow Lounge was part of September's ArtHotel, a monthly-ish event featuring a variety of performance works hosted at Hotel Espresso. Strangeness followed, as performers, art-hotel-goers and hotel patrons blended into one surreal vacation party.

? [Dis] Location : Couture and Frosst at the VAV

Posted by Jasia / July 22, 2010



If you aren't familiar with the VAV gallery, this show might seem a little minimal. And if you are not familiar with the weird administrative practices of universities, the pulling of half the work in the show might seem even more strange.

I mean grass?? I have seen a few shows in my time that involve plants and grass being put into a gallery and have never, never heard of a show being shut down due to allergies. And what about all the grass outside? It seems to me that the best solution for the person who was suffering from allergies to the sod covering the floor of half of Andrew Frosst and Anne-Sophie Couture 's joint exhibition would have been simply to stay clear of it.

What, exactly, is going to go happen at this mysteriously titled event Saturday night? Talking to the event's organizers, les Archipelliers, they can't tell me precisely what will happen because they are not entirely sure.

The event, which is being held at the always surreal location of the Bain Saint-Michel, that empty pool down on St Dominique, will pull together a series of happenings, circus performances, poetry, video projections and bands, hopefully culminating in, as one of the organizers described it to me, a really memorable party.
