Welcome to an ephemeral, modular space. Risque d’échec underlines the ongoing evolution of the artists’ process, research, and work. By transforming itself in the course a two week exhibition, the space begs the question of an artwork’s completion. The space puts forth a collective experiment, allows mistakes to happen, and encourages risk-taking in public. This playing court asks artists to put their work on the line, no longer in fixed conditions, resulting in a social, improvised project. What is on display here is not just the work nor the artist, rather, it is the artists’ ongoing relationship with their work, and the traces of their communal presence.

Bienvenue dans un espace éphémère et modulable. Risque d’échec souligne l’évolution constante du processus des artistes, de leurs recherches et de leurs œuvres. En se métamorphosant au cours des deux semaines d’exposition, le lieu qui vous est proposé questionne la finitude d’une œuvre d’art. Il met en avant l’expérimentation collective et laisse place au facteur d’erreur en encourageant une prise de risque publique. Ce terrain de jeu sollicite ainsi le dépassement de l’artiste vers une frontière instable, ou plus courante, et résultante d’un projet improvisé et social. L’art ici n’est pas seulement l’œuvre, ni l’artiste, mais leur cogitation et les traces de leur présence commune.

Paul Weber, one of Hollywood’s most respected casting directors has developed a dynamic, practical and highly effective intensive program that demystifies the audition process and gives the actor the skill and confidence needed to create a memorable audition experience. THE ART OF THE AUDITION, THE BUSINESS OF THE ART offers actors of every level the winning tools that will help you achieve success in the audition room.

With humour and grace, three families struggle with the inevitability of death and their inability to express everything they want to. Set in a pastoral hospice, this poignant play examines questions not only of death and loss, but also of love, identity, and each person's place in the world.

The McGill Art History & Communications Studies Graduate Student Association (AHCS GSA) invites you to turn a critical eye on Montreal’s 375th anniversary.
