MONTREAL, Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - We are pleased to invite you to Art Souterrain, this winter's contemporary art festival based in Montreal, which will
be back for its 6th edition from March 1st to March 16th 2014. Nearly 100 works of art, by emerging and established international
artists, like Bertrant Carrière, Hannah Claus, Martine Viale, Mathieu Valade and Glenda Leon ( the names will be revealed February 18th ), will be on display throughout a 7-kilometer underground pathway,
linking 14 buildings, in downtown Montreal.
The selected artists will expose their various projects and artworks
exploring this year's theme: Foundations, which evokes the redefinition of cultural and identity referents, the disruption of secular traditions inside communities and the
influence of migration on the individual's behaviour.
To gain a greater understanding of the importance of foundations in
today's society, Art Souterrain focuses a large part of its 2014
edition on First Nations contemporary art. Under the direction of curator and internationally renowned artist Nadia Myre, a delegation of Canadian native artists will showcase their ideas and
views on Foundations, an especially relevant theme in aboriginal society.
30% of the festival's exhibition space is committed to emerging artists,
a status that will be visible on all the organisation's various media
as well as in the physical exhibition spaces. Furthermore, in 2014, Art
Souterrain will develop its formula to host a larger set of new, free activities, in addition to renewing last year's popular ones. This includes the
festival's artistic contest, Mail Art, and its nocturnal treasure hunt, Ticket to the Arts.
ART SOUTERRAIN, a non-profit organization founded in 2009, showcases
each year international contemporary art institutions, artists, and the
architectural and cultural heritage of downtown Montreal's underground
city. As a unique contemporary art festival in North America, Art
Souterrain aims to make art accessible to a wider audience by taking it
out of it's traditional exhibition spaces. In 2014, the festival aims
to pursue its objective of always offering more to our artists, our
platforms and our public.
