‘A Very Bad Dream’ by Eric Chan – at Galerie Youn

 

Like many other activities, things slow down a little in the Arts scene around this time of year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find something great to do every day of the week. While there are only a few vernissages taking place this week, there are lots of shows closing so now is the time to catch them while you can!

 

'Currents' by Erin Loree at Galerie Youn

Tonight’s big event is the vernissage for Galerie Youn’s holiday group show Glow, which features new works by 30 emerging artists who were discovered this year across the international art fair circuit.

A new window installation will be created for the exhibit by Commute Design Agency. 5226 St-Laurent, Tuesday, Dec. 16, 5–8 p.m.

 

On Wednesday, take advantage of a guided tour of the Biennale exhibits at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (MAC), hosted by curator Mark Lanctôt. 185 Ste-Catherine W., Wednesday, Dec. 17, 7–8 p.m. Free with Biennale Passeport or regular MAC admission rates without.
