Mesures préventives // preventive measures
COVID-19

Dans la lignée des mesures annoncées par le gouvernement du Québec, l’Université Bishop’s décrète plusieurs mesures de prévention afin de protéger ses employés et la population contre la propagation du COVID-19. À la suite de cette annonce, la Galerie d’art Foreman se doit de fermer temporairement ses portes à compter du samedi, 14 mars 2020, et ce pour une période indéterminée.

Pour ces mêmes raisons, nous nous voyons dans l'obligation d'annuler la tenue de la 22e exposition annuelle des finissants en beaux-arts de l'Université Bishop's, qui devait se tenir du 1er au 11 avril 2020.

La situation demeure évolutive et les mesures pourraient être amenées à changer en fonction du contexte. Nous vous tiendrons informé de la suite des événements et de la réouverture.

Merci de votre compréhension.

________________________________________


In line with the newly announced measures by the Government of Quebec, Bishop’s University will suspend all activities for two weeks as a precaution against the spread of coronavirus COVID-19. Consequently, the Foreman Art Gallery will be temporarily closed as of Saturday, March 14, 2020, until further notice.

As such, we are forced to cancel the holding of the 22nd Bishop’s University Fine Arts Graduating Student Exhibition that was to be held between April 1-11, 2020.

The situation may be changing and will be reassessed based on circumstances. We will continue to keep you posted on any future developments.

Thanks for your comprehension.

CURRENT EXHIBITION

FABULOUS IMAGES. WHEN FICTION TAKES ROOT

 

January 16th to March 21st, 2020 

Opening reception: Thursday, January 16th, from 5 to 7 pm

Artists: Sonny Assu, Danis Goulet, The Iyapo Repository, Larissa Sansour & Søren Lind, Skawennati

 

 Fabulous Images. When Fiction Takes Root examines the hermeneutical scope of science fiction as a narrative genre in the context of emancipatory discourses that foster ethnocultural diversity. The exhibition features works by Canadian and international artists, novels, posters, popular films, video games and collectibles, all of which are at the juncture of sci-fi and identity politics. Touching on a vast array of representation, from the utopian refuge to the darkest dystopias by way of uchronian narratives and social speculations, Fabulous Images examines how fiction reveals the possibilities of alternative existences.
