Presented by Plug In ICA, and hosted at the Winnipeg Art Gallery in their auditorium on Tuesday, April 9, 2019, the legendary Buren will give a public talk detailing his bold and categorical work.

Plug In ICA presents this talk as part of our STAGES Speaker Series in anticipation of the STAGES biennial in 2019. For STAGES 2019, Buren will remount a work for the first time since 1981 titled, Limited Time Only!. This site-specific intervention was initially produced in Toronto in a St. James Town apartment block for which Buren offered to wallpaper apartments within the building with his signature stripes. Residents of the apartment block could have an artwork by Buren for the minimal cost of the wallpaper itself: $50 for one wall, $125 for an entire room. Plug In ICA will work with Buren to restage this work in Winnipeg in August 2019, selecting an apartment block similar in history and economic status to the original, offering its residents an opportunity to have a work by Buren installed in their homes for a Limited Time Only!. The title emulates language used in advertising, but references the tenuous and precarious nature of the renter.

For the International Day of Francophonie, Alliance française du Manitoba is happy to screen "Sans Maman", by Marie-France Guerrette, a franco-albertan filmmaker (who will be present for this occasion!)
On August 31, 1995, Guerrette's family life takes a dramatic turn. Mona, the mother, passes at 42 of the remnants of a breast cancer, leaving behind a husband and two daughters, Mylène and Marie-France, to which she bequeaths a tape containing the testimony of her life. How to recover, as a child, from the death of a parent? By recording her life, as well as her family's, Marie-France Guerrette welcomes us into her mourning. The archives, sometimes flawed or imprecise and filled with emotions, build the history of her family. Marked with authenticity, these interviews represent a freeing speech. Along her path, she discovers a heavy legacy: genetical cancer. This documentary has had many positive points on Marie-France's life - ease the mourning process, incitate a call for action, as well as anchoring her in the side of the livings.
