Today’s the first day of Montreal Joue, a new festival where libraries around town, of all places, will be holding video game-related installations.

It goes on til Mar 2, while the fest ends Mar 10. 4707 Notre-Dame W., 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Check out Scott Everingham’s chillingly beautiful, abstractly narrative paintings in Until Dust at the exhibit’s vernissage at Galerie Trois Points. The smaller space welcomes Olga Chagaoutdinova’s un-ravelling, a video project of withering and revival. Belgo Building, 372 Ste-Catherine W., #520, 3-6 p.m.
