(31 to 64 years old)
Description
"Lemoyne. Offside" presents an exceptional portrait of the art of Quebec multidisciplinary artist Serge Lemoyne, as playful as it is striking. With more than a hundred works, the exhibit will highlight the artist's thirst for total freedom expressed through all forms of creativity, and a dissident attitude towards art and traditional venues, as evidenced by his many ephemeral, interactive and sometimes subversive works. His artistic practice is marked by a series of performative events to which he devotes himself, body and soul, aiming to better integrate art into everyday life, in a spirit of opening culture up to the whole community. It is also in this spirit that, for ten years, he focussed on the theme of hockey, as a true fan of the Montreal Canadiens, by using the iconic blue-white-red colours of the team's uniforms.
This outing includes
Access to the museum and to the "Lemoyne. Offside" exhibition.

Additional information
A multidisciplinary artist before his time, instigator of the first happenings, he was also one of the first Quebec artists to lay the foundations of postmodernism through a practice that was more liberating than intellectual. Like the New York artists whose work he admired, he adopted a neo-dadaist posture very early on, ventured into the pop world, and became interested in participatory art and collective creation.
