The 20th European Night of Museums organised by the French Ministry of Culture, will take place this year on Saturday, May 18! The European Night of Museums gives people of all ages and backgrounds the chance to visit over 3,000 museums in France and Europe during a festive evening. Once again this year, the Canadian Cultural Centre is proud to be taking part in this major event!

Clive Holden – Composition for an ensemble, or The Spirit of The Games

Clive Holden is interested in the representation of celebrity and fame, and what surrounds it, the conditioning of our gaze in relation to this type of images, and the gaze of his fellow photographers and filmmakers.
With its central screening specifically designed for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Paris 2024, the exhibition consists of a digital, video and photographic installation combining an original commission,”UNSUNG”, with other works by the artist that provide a broader conceptual context for the commission. The artist works with archive images from past Olympic and Paralympic Games. The spectacular images of athletic movement and the dramatic potential of the faces are staged, mixed, looped and transformed into visual rhymes.


Curators: Catherine Bédard and Steven Bulger
With the support of the Canadian Paralympic Committee and the National Film Board of Canada.

Programme of films on art – Bodies in motion
In connection with the exhibition “Composition for an ensemble, or The Spirit of The Games“, the Canadian Cultural Centre is offering a selection of films from the recent editions of the Montreal International Festival of Films on Art. This “Bodies in Motion” programme is eclectic, sensitive and resilient, open to the world and to Indigenous cultures. The 9 films brought together give us a glimpse of the possibility of emancipation and empowerment through poetry, dance, art and movement.

Two screenings of the programme (72 minutes) at 7pm and 8.30pm.
In partnership with the Montreal International Festival of Films on Art.

As part of the programme for the Paris 2024 Cultural Olympiad.
