10.04 — 19.05 / 2024





A new initiative, the Mois pédagogique is a way for us at Sporobole to develop links with the community in which we are embedded. Our goal is to learn with artists. As our center supports the production and dissemination of works in the arts and technology created by the professional community of artists from Quebec, Canada and abroad, we are placing learning with artists at the heart of the new activities on offer. In this way, we wish to celebrate the radical freedom of artists embodied in their creations, and hope to share it with a wide audience!

It is in this spirit that our first edition of the Mois pédagogique brings together four events as part of a wider range of cultural activities taking place in Sherbrooke and elsewhere, both in educational establishments and in non-official spaces. From April 10 to 13, Myriam Yates’ Portraits (reconfigurations), a four-channel video work about newcomers to Sherbrooke learning French at the Centre Saint-Michel, is presented in the gallery. Then, from April 16 to 19, we welcome 17 students from the Université de Sherbrooke’s new Microprogramme en arts et technologies who, as part of the “Art et expérimentation sonore” course, will use the gallery as a site for sound experimentation.

From April 23 to May 7, we present an exhibition of 24 students from the visual arts program at the Cégep de Sherbrooke conceived as part of the “Démarche artistique et diffusion” course. Finally, to mark the end of the Mois pédagogique, the Festival analogue takes place on the weekend of May 17 to 19, and brings together a variety of activities: a visual art exhibition by the Club de dessin de Sherbrooke, the Art Hive from Le Tremplin 16-30 and two initiatives from Colombia: La Linterna and Juntanza Danza; a vinyl sale in the gallery by 15 collectors from Montreal, Quebec City and Sherbrooke; and free wheatpaste and risography workshops for people of all ages who want to invade the outside walls of our building with their creations.


Thank you for joining us!
