EMERGE is an event dedicated to contemporary performance, featuring a dozen European and Canadian artists and participants invited to present recent works that address the multidisciplinary direction taken by some of today’s most engaging practices.

Echoing the performance program, workshops punctuated by conferences and exchanges will be held during the week. On the last day, Saturday, a forum will bring together the public, artists, curators, art critics, and theorists from here and abroad. The Forum will be an opportunity to share our thoughts on current events and performance issues.

EMERGE is a co-production of the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, Goethe-Institut Montreal and the Consulat Général de France à Québec as members of the Montréal cluster of cultural institutes of member countries in the European National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC), along with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Montreal and the Embassy of Spain in Ottawa. The project received generous support from the Franco-German Fund, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Consulate General of Switzerland and the Royal Norwegian Embassy.
