CONTEMPORARY ART EVENT

Québec City, February 28, 2008 — At a press conference held today, Claude Bélanger, general and artistic director of Manifestation internationale d’art de Québec, was pleased to announce the 4th edition of the MANIF D’ART event, to be held May 1 to June 15, 2008.

The MANIF D’ART has positioned itself in Québec City’s cultural landscape as an important event in visual and contemporary art. Strengthened by three previous successful editions, the MANIF D’ART is now one of the main visual and contemporary art biennials in Canada.

The main exhibition sites of the MANIF D’ART 4 will be located in the Espaces GM at 840 and 509 rue Saint-Joseph Est. These two separate locales are being used to thematically group the work displayed and optimize exchange with the local arts scene. The MANIF D’ART 4 is also benefitting from an exceptional showcase in the heart of the Saint-Roch district, confirming its contribution to Québec City’s cultural energy.

In the spring of 2008, the MANIF D’ART 4 will unfurl its largest edition to date, celebrating contemporary art from Québec City and elsewhere.
