Visual: Ateliers Portes Ouvertes du Mile-End

Ateliers Portes Ouvertes du Mile-End

Silkscreen artist Mathieu Dubois

This weekend, Centre Clark and Ubisoft Montreal invite the public to visit the studios and workshops of more than 100 Mile End artists. Already in its third edition, the Ateliers Portes Ouvertes du Mile-End (APO) event will allow people to rub elbows with painters, sculptors, photographers, videographers and other visual artists. "The APO exposes artists’ social, economic and urban reality, uncovering myths surrounding their lifestyle. These encounters are very stimulating for visitors on many levels," says Mathieu Beauséjour, founder of the APO. "Participating in the APO is sort of like entering the Montreal art world through side doors, and freely roaming behind the scenes while getting a sense of shapes, colours, materials and spaces. It is about seeing things with a new perspective," adds APO spokesperson Claude Poissant. May 20-22. www.clarkplaza.org
