Event description:

If you are truly interested in Contemporary Art, and learning about the Montreal art scene and galleries, then this trip is for you.

We had such an incredible experience for Biennale opening weekend in October, we will return for closing weekend, and add some Leonard Cohen memories while there.

FIELD TRIP TO MONTREAL for 2016 Biennale Closing Weekend (Thurs January 12-Sunday January 15)


Montréal: a cultural metropolis

Montréal is a unique venue for emerging artistic talent and, as a City of Design (designated in 2006), is part of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. It will be celebrating its 375th anniversary in 2017. The city also stands out as a major international creative hub, particularly in contemporary dance and digital arts


We will be leading a small group tour to Montreal in January (approx 16 members only)

(Montreal is the only Canadian city with a Biennale)

http://www.macm.org/en/expositions/la-biennale-de-montreal-2016/


La Biennale de Montréal offers a wide audience a privileged opportunity to grasp the aesthetic and social issues addressed by today’s art. La Biennale de Montréal also provides an international platform for Québec and Canadian artists, curators, theoreticians, art critics and researchers working in various fields to meet, encounter and discuss cutting-edge practices, and contribute to different international networks.

What I can share with you now (its fluid):  You can read some of the member reviews from our October trip

We want to have a lot of FUN...learn and be part of this experience

Travel options to get there:  VIA Rail, BUS, car pool, fly...your choice based on budget

Accomodations while there:  Your choice based on your budget.

We would all like to meetup Thursday night January 12, somewhere central Montreal for a drink and chat.

We will visit 8-10 galleries in total.

Thursday January 12...Biennale events begin for closing weekend

Friday January 13....all day exploring galleries, meeting gallery owners and artists (starting 10am...

Saturday January 14...all day exploring galleries, meeting gallery owners and artists (starting 10am...

Sunday January 15...before leaving, we can visit Leonard Cohen's de Vallieres house, cemetery and family plot, Portugal Park, food haunts along Saint Laurent Boulevard

This is NOT the exact schedule, but close.  It will be put together based on best logistics.

(Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Musee d'art Contemporie, Canadian Centre for Architecture are 3 main museums we will visit on tour.)

Again, accommodations are totally up to each of you.  Most will have been to Montreal before, and you may have your favorite place.  And of course, each person has their own budget.  Hotel, B&B, Airbnb, family/friends.  3 nights.

There is no exact cost to share, it will depend on you.  Each is responsible for arranging your own travel there/back, and your own accommodations for 3 nights...and any insurance you require.  I don't think any of us will be more than 10 mins from downtown..

Some exhibitions/galleries will have admission tickets (probably $40 total).  There is no reciprocal arrangements between any galleries in Toronto and those in Montreal.  We had organized tours at Museum of Fine Arts for the Robert Mapplethorpe exhibition and MAC...which is Biennale Central

We may travel within Montreal via taxi, subway, walk.  Friday and Saturday will be long days, but you will see fabulous art.  You don't have to do everything with group.  Exploring on your own is fine.  We can arrange dinner plans at some other time.  We had great lunches each day, and a wind down drink when day was over.

Check your schedules...it's in about 2 months from now...do you have the time to go, can you get time off work, why do you want to go....Montreal in January will be cold and snowy....but something about being there at that time of the year adds to the memories and experience.


By participating in this Field Trip, will give you advance notice of our next trip to NYC in April/May 2017 for Spring Art Fairs, and Culture trip to Iceland in Fall 2017.

Until you are confirmed with me, please do NOT RSVP on Meetup.

There will be  a small non-refundable cost to attend, and help offset organizing fees.
