Home sweet home Family Gallery

June 24, 2016 to October 23, 2016

Because the family is one of the top priorities of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, it goes without saying that we would join with the theatre company Les Incomplètes to offer, in collaboration with the creators Marie-Pier Lebeau and Pierre Brassard, Home sweet home.

Following presentations at three Québec City libraries, a complete version of the three-parts of this artistic project will inaugurate the future permanent Family Gallery of the MNBAQ in summer 2016. This new artistic project is a fascinating immersive journey in which the real and the imaginary mix: a multi-sensory experience bringing together visual art, sound art and children’s literature.

Three small houses, next to a reading garden, will explore three fascinating outdoor worlds: Archipelago, Garden and River. Each will present a work of art from the Prêt d’oeuvres d’art collection of the MNBAQ and create an original visual and aural environment inspired by the chosen artwork. Both children and grown-ups will find here an absolutely unique experience.
