MBAS: Réverbérations and Weekend Mobile Art

2.Erik Beck 2012 montage photographiqueSHERBROOKE: The Museum of Fine Arts of Sherbrooke will be hosting ‘Réverbérations’ on Saturday, April 27 (8p.m.) - admission fee of $10. This is an original presentation combining the poetic and vocal efforts of Ian Fournier, Sophie Jeukens and Mathieu Proulx, echoing the works of the Salon du printemps des artistes des Cantons-de-l’Est. The narrative of this metaphorical voyage comes from the poetic pen of Frank Poule, taking the form of the unusual character - “the Phantom of the Museum”. 

Presented by Slam du Tremplin, Reverberations proposes not only a physical but a sound and symbolic illustration of the Museum and the Exhibition, demonstrating all the evocative power that poetry can muster. The traditional silence of the Museum will be filled with the noise of exhibited works, reciting their usually inaudible stories. The event will also be the launching of a collection of literary creations inspired by works of the Salon du printemps des artistes des Cantons-de-l’Est.
