Participate in the creation of a collective art work with Patrick Bérubé, artist in residence at Maison Smith

To mark the 50th anniversary of the first international Sculpture Symposium in North America, Les amis de la montagne in collaboration with the Bureau d'art public of the Ville de Montréal, invite artist Patrick Bérubé to produce a co-creation art work with the public, within it's residence at Maison Smith..
 
In his work, Patrick Bérubé plays with space and places to divert appearances, question, provoke and entertain. For him, the stone imposes itself as the material and symbol of Mount Royal. Thus, this collective public art will be built in the likeness of the rock strata of the mountain, and reveal layers of stories and feelings in reflection of its inspiration, Mount Royal.

To begin his residence as part of the Journées de la culture, artist Patrick Bérubé invites those interested to become co-authors of the artwork Les Danseurs. For four days, visitors will discover the work of the artist and participate in the creation of his work. Through images of the year 1964, they will be asked to redo the layers of history that accumulate in the strata, like geological layers of the mountain and monoliths of the Symposium.

  • From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • At Maison Smith (1260 Chemin Remembrance, Mount Royal Park)
