Cities, Citizenships, Citizens … from Chili to Quebec

Québec City, November 5, 2007 – In September 2007, four Québec artists flew to Chili to participate in creation residencies with a view to the 8th edition of the Bienal de Video y Nuevos Medios de Santiago. To document their participation, Manifestation internationale d’art de Québec has just released the catalogue Cités, citoyennetés, citoyens / Cities, Citizenships, Citizens / Ciudades, ciudadanías, ciudadanos.

Cités, citoyennetés, citoyens / Cities, Citizenships, Citizens / Ciudades, ciudadanías, ciudadanos is an extension of the Manifestation internationale d’art de Québec and La Bande Vidéo co-production that led Martin Bureau (Saint-Jean-de- l’île-d’Orléans), Jean-François Côté (Québec City), Manon De Pauw (Montréal) and Murielle Dupuis Larose (Québec City) to the Chilean biennial. The publication summarizes the fruit of their residencies and subsequent presentation of their work alongside productions by 20 international artists at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Santiago for the duration of the biennial (October 2 to 28, 2007). The catalogue also includes a forward by the Québec curator of the exhibition, Claude Bélanger, and a critical text by author Geneviève Pelletier.

The trilingual catalogue (French/English/Spanish) is now available at the cost of $10 from Manifestation internationale d’art de Québec (Québec), La Bande Vidéo (Québec) and the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Santiago.
