VIVA! Art Action – 3rd edition

December 3, 2010

Montreal (Quebec) Canada

From the 1st to the 8th of October 2011 in Montreal, Canada

DEADLINE: December 3, 2010

VIVA! Art Action is a shared initiative between the artist-run centers articule, Clark, DARE-DARE, La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse, Praxis art actuel and Skol, which gave rise to the first international live art event in Montreal in the fall of 2006. VIVA! Art Action proposes a vibrant environment that favors emerging, ephemeral, unpredictable and constantly shifting art practices. Inspired by the success of the two precedent editions, the six artist-run centres have set up a third VIVA! Art Action event in the fall 2011, wishing to renew their commitment to art that manifests itself in the « here and now »!

The first two days of VIVA! 2011 will be exclusively dedicated to the invited artists and professionals of VIVA!. allowing to meet each other and to exchange ideas in  an open and convivial setting. VIVA! 2011 will be shorter in duration than in previous years and will have fewer artists participating; as a result, each artist will have the possibility to intervene several times during the course of the event. And In order to provide the flexibility necessary to live art, and in addition to a structured programme of performances and discussions over five days, VIVA! 2011 will also provide open spaces for non-programmed exchanges and spontaneous actions.

VIVA! invites local, national and international artists, artists’ collectives, and theorists to describe to us their practices and intentions for performances, happenings, actions, infiltrations, public and participative interventions, workshops and debates. We encourage work that address the specificity of a context, be it work presented in VIVA’s central location, the old St-Michel Bath, in the storefront and gallery spaces of the participating artist-run centres, or in public space, the private sphere, in non-sites…

VIVA! respects the artist fee rates established by RAAV/CARFAC 2010 and contributes as much as possible to travel and accommodation expenses.
