Another great news; FIMAV is nominated in the category « Fierté régionale, Prix Pierre-Roux » at the Chambre de commerce et d'industrie Bois-Francs Érable's annual gala. Thanks to our team, the artists, the volunteers and to all our generous partners!
The visual arts have always held a special place in the programming of the Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville (FIMAV). It is a tradition that goes back to our very first edition. This integration reflects the fundamental relationship between music and the expression of all current art forms. Since 1983, FIMAV has had the honour of exhibiting the works of over forty of the most significant visual artists in Quebec. The challenge remains to find fabulous large-scale works to be hung on the curtains that dress the concert hall temporarily set up every year inside the Colisée Desjardins in Victoriaville.
For FIMAV's 35th edition, which will take place from May 16 to 19, 2019, visual arts curator Érick d'Orion has selected MARTIN BUREAU, a filmmaker and painter who grew up in Saint-Félicien, in the Lac-Saint-Jean region. BUREAU actually lives and works in Quebec City. Through painting, documentary-making, and video installations, he is exploring the meeting point between geopolitics and art. Catastrophe, colonialism and entropy are themes commonly found in his works.
In order to discover MARTIN BUREAU's artistic process while waiting for the 35th FIMAV, we invite you to visit an exhibition of his works at Galerie 3 in Quebec City, as well as his installation "Les murs du désordre" at Salle Raoul-Barré of the Cinémathèque québécoise in Montreal, an interdisciplinary project featuring an immersive experience in the heart of the disputed areas in which walls are erected. Both the exhibition and the installation are accessible until February 10, 2019. For more details, visit the artist's Web site.
