Art Souterrain on until the end of April:

Art Souterrain is proud to present, for its 13th consecutive year, the Art Souterrain Festival from February 20th to April 30th, 2021. This year the festival is reinventing itself by offering a digital component (February 20th to April 30rd) and an urban component (April 10th to 30th).

Several digital activities will be accessible throughout the festival on our platforms. It is in the heart of Montreal that some thirty artists and performers will present, for 7 weeks, contemporary artworks and performances on the theme of Chronometry. The works selected by the 2 curators, Nathalie Bachand (Canada) and Dulce Pinzon (Mexico) will be accessible in the safe public spaces of the underground city of Montreal at all times and free of charge from April 10th to 30th, even if the city is still in the red zone!

Lectures, Workshops, and Online Events:


Women & Leadership Corner Office Series at Concordia:

Join us for a conversation with Heather Igloliorte, Associate Professor in Art History and Eunice Bélidor, BFA 12, the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Curator of Quebec and Canadian Contemporary Art (1945 to Today), at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Museums reflect the diversity and the voices of the people within their collections and around them. Are galleries doing something similar – and if so, what steps are being taken? Who are the people who make the decisions about the exhibitions? What is shown in the exhibitions and how is the story told? Do the decision-makers have a decolonial mindset? Are they aware of their own biases? How can we change the demographics of solo exhibitions at Canadian public institutions to be more inclusive?

Tuesday, May 18, 2021, 1 – 2 p.m. Eastern Time

Lots of interesting courses via Coursera. How about this one?


Roman Art and Archeology - The objective of this course is to provide an overview of the culture of ancient Rome beginning about 1000 BCE and ending with the so-called "Fall of Rome". We will look at some of the key people who played a role in Rome, from the time of the kings through the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. We will also focus on the city of Rome itself, as well as Rome's expansion through Italy, the Mediterranean, and beyond. The course is given by David Soren, Regents Professor of Classics and Anthropology, University of Arizona.
