A multitude of cultural events at the Parc-Extension library

This coming fall, residents of Parc extension will be able to enjoy a slew of cultural activities at the borough’s library.

This delightful offering starts with the Arteria exhibition which presents the work of three artists of Latin American origin: Claudia Gutierrez, denirée isabel and Sarabeth Triviño, as part of the 14th edition of the LatinArte Festival. With an innovative approach, these three artists explore textile art and the notion of the trajectory of living memory. Their works offer multiple meanings and sensitive experiences through the alliance of traditions and ancestral know-how with installation and digital art. The present manifests itself as a complex system of transmission, where memories, knowledge and stories circulate, to pierce the silence of time. In a timeless, human, poetic and sensitive space, the ancestral knowledge and memories of the peoples of the Americas are linked with contemporary imaginations, in order to present alternative narratives from emerging voices, strong and resilient, but also vulnerable in the face of a world sometimes dystopian. The exhibition opens on Wednesday, September 14 at 5:30 p.m. and a guided visit, accompanied by the curator will be done on Saturday, October 29th at 1:30 p.m.

The opening hours are Wednesday to Friday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 pm
