Screenings

Presented in association with the exhibition Gabor Szilasi: The Art World in Montreal, 1960-1980, the documentary Bozarts (58 minutes) by Jacques Giraldeau, produced and distributed by the National Film Board of Canada, takes a look at the 1960s Quebec arts scene. Introduction to the screening by Francine Couture, art historian.

In this 1969 documentary, painters, sculptors, art critics, architects, museum and gallery directors discuss the connection, or indeed the separation, between artists, the public and institutions. Those interviewed include Armand Vaillancourt, Marcel Rioux, Gilles Hénault, Marcelle Ferron, Claude Jasmin and Jean-Paul Mousseau.

Preceding the screening, art historian and sociologist Francine Couture will set the scene for the documentary, describing the art world of the late 1960s (the relationship between art and society, the social function of art, the government’s role, etc.), and introduce the participants who speak in the film.

Free and open to all.
