The last in a three-year series of exhibitions dedicated to new audiences, Art is Alive evokes the connections between art and life, based on the cultural history of Quebec, today marked by the industrialization of biotechnology. The exhibition creates a new dynamic of mediation between the practices of six contemporary artists, the Bishop's University art collection, the ethnographic collection of Université de Montréal and specimens from the Musée de la nature et des sciences de Sherbrooke. A journey through the technical and technological manipulation of organic matter and forms, Art is Alive invites visitors to engage with art for the survival of the ecosystem.

Produced by the Foreman Art Gallery with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the City of Sherbrooke and the Conseil des arts et de lettres du Québec.
