LUMINA: Flagship Summer Project

The Mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, invites citizens to take part in the Picnic Vernissage of LUMINA, the flagship artistic project of the summer, which will take place at Stewart Hall Cultural Centre on Sunday, July 7, from 12 to 5 p.m.

“With LUMINA, the Stewart Hall Art Gallery is showcasing light and invites citizens of all ages to enjoy an artistic experience that will take place throughout the summer, thanks to extensive program around the theme,” said Mayor Belvedere.

From July 7 to August 25, children and adults can explore light in different forms through activities, various workshops and family shows.

At the heart of the project, the LUMINA exhibition pays tribute to light through the works of seven Canadian and international artists: Magalie Comeau, the IvanovStoeva artist duo, Lisette Lemieux, Martin Messier, James Nizam, Josée Pellerin and Étienne Rey. Émilie Granjon and Laurent Lamarche are the curators for this project. Luminous halo, photographic recordings, profusion of trajectories or diffraction, all phenomena that come to life to make us experience art. At the Kids’ Corner, Fireflies, another exhibition for young people, transports visitors to a world that combines art and science in a playful atmosphere.

The festivities will be launched during the vernissage in the presence of the artists and curators of the exhibition. Throughout the afternoon, family and friends will enjoy a relaxing time in Stewart Park with entertainment on the terrace: public piano with Simon Piché-Castonguay, contemporary dance performance with Ample Man Danse and luminous creation workshops.

During the summer, participatory sessions with artists, guided tours, family art workshops, concerts, shows, reading squad and activities with sheep are planned.

In August, young people aged 14 to 21 are invited to register for a festive evening specially reserved for them at the Art Gallery. They will have the opportunity to share and have fun, while discovering an exhibition that speaks to them. DJ and light buffet are planned for this trendy event.

Finally, a mural currently being created by the city’s youth will be on display in the brand new skatepark before the end of the summer.
