CDEM and Alliance française du Manitoba are launching a Movies Under the Stars program this summer for the first time, with a view to
providing the province’s bilingual municipalities with an opportunity to hold outdoor movie nights in French.
For the fourth year in a row, the French community and the Alliance française du Manitoba wish all Winnipeggers to celebrate
France's National Day, also known as Bastille Day. Blues Blanc Rouge is the ideal way to mark this special day. It is a free and public event, filled with local music as well with
French wine and Manitoban cheese. Thanks to the support of La Maison des Artistes Visuels Francophones and of the 100 NONS,
we plan on bringing life, culture and amusement in Saint-Boniface.
The Martinican poet Véronique Kanor and the Indigenous poet from Canada Tyler Pennock have been selected
participate in a writing residency and a French-Canadian tour organised by the Centre for Creative Writing & Oral Culture at the
University of Manitoba, the Alliance Française du Manitoba, the Maison Gabrielle Roy, the Maison de la Poésie de Nantes and the cultural
services of the French Embassy in Canada.
From April 25th until May 1st 2019, the two poets will gather for one week of writing residency at the Alliance Française du
Manitoba and at the Maison Gabrielle Roy (Winnipeg).
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.
