Automatisme Ambulatoire Matinée

September 22, 2019

Coinciding with Sackville’s Fall Fair, this afternoon event invites visitors to explore the exhibition Automatisme Ambulatoire: Hysteria, Imitation, Performance and spend time drawing by touch in the galleries. With braille paper and special drawing tools, make embossed drawings that you can feel. Young visitors can borrow new Art Kits featuring playful, in-gallery artmaking activities that respond to artworks on view. Dancers will activate Brendan Fernandes’ installation The Rite from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm.

Curated by Amanda Cachia, Automatisme Ambulatoire includes newly commissioned works by Diane Borsato, Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz, Claire Cunningham, Brendan Fernandes, Every Ocean Hughes and My Barbarian.

This exhibition is one of the 200 exceptional projects funded through the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter program. With this $35M investment, the Council supports the creation and sharing of the arts in communities across Canada. This project was also funded by Mount Allison University, the New Brunswick Department of Tourism Heritage and Culture, and the Government of Canada (Young Canada Works in Heritage Organizations).

Everyone welcome. ASL interpretation will be available.
