"Manufacturing #17", Deda Chicken Processing Plant, Dehui City,
Manufactured Landscapes
There are two vernissages today at the Galerie de l’UQAM: The Disorderliness of Things explores themes of disobedience and countercultural rebellion as critical practice while stopping short of outright militancy. The second show, Transcender l’architecture by Marie-Eve Martel, considers Henry David Thoreau’s hand-built cottage at Walden Pond as a “place of knowledge,” juxtaposed with a prestigious Yale library of rare books. Pavillon Judith-Jasmin (1400 Berri, Local J-R 120), 5:30 p.m.
