In celebration of Black History Month, the Textile Museum of Canada is pleased to present:
A Special Cocktail Reception with Kenneth Montague and Jérôme Havre
Wednesday February 26, 2014 at 6 pm
@ Textile Museum of Canada
Join us for a gallery walkthrough with Kenneth Montague, director of Wedge Curatorial Projects, in conversation with artist Jérôme Havre, providing an overview of Havre’s influences and references in a context of black representation in contemporary visual arts. This program is offered in conjunction with the TMC’s exhibition Fictions and Legends: Heather Goodchild and Jérôme Havre.
On view until April 13, Fictions and Legends features the imaginative worlds embodied in the work of Goodchild and Havre, as well as their use of visual storytelling to invent biographical and mythical histories that hint at the presence of secret societies and systems of belief, mystical practices and alternative cultural codes. Fictions and Legends is curated by Sarah Quinton and organized by the Textile Museum of Canada with the support of the Anne Angus Contemporary Program Fund.
