Been cooking up tons of good stuff lately, but sadly, little has seen the pages of this blog.
EN MASSE - En Masse @ Osheaga 2009
With its debut installation at Galerie Pangée in February, 2009, the EN MASSE collective launched an exciting new element into the Montreal visual arts scene. In an unprecedented force of ink, the artists performed a monumental ‘art jam’ that covered every inch of the gallery’s walls.
28 artists with backgrounds in graffiti, comics, underground design and fine art culminate their talents toward a collective experience of the spontaneous ecstasy of making marks. Brand new to Montreal gallery and museum spaces, EN MASSE is a movable feast of collaborative, improvised creation.
Curated by Jason Botkin, Rupert Bottenberg and Fred Casia, the Osheaga EN MASSE event features a dozen artists performing a large-scale, improvised and site-specific mural to the festival sounds.Lisa Czech
