La troisième langue / The Third Tongue

La troisième langue / The Third Tongue

Thursday, October 4, 6:30pm at the Bachir/Yerex Presentation Space, 401 Richmond St. West, suite 440

Co-presented with Le Labo. Curated by Carolina Reis.

« La troisième langue / The Third Tongue » is a media arts event that will start with this screening of several short films, followed by an exhibition in October, and concluding with a panel discussion about the topic of the third tongue in December.

A third tongue is a language that emerges from the coexistence of two languages. This language can only be spoken and understood by individuals living in that particular bilingual context because they have, at least, partial knowledge of both originating languages. This curatorial project, commissioned by Le Labo, stems from extensive research about the production practices of Francophone Media Artists, especially those living in linguistic minority contexts. The intention of this research was to put aside notions of artistic expression and go beyond strict categorizations of artistic discipline as a way to address questions about identity and Francophone art.

ARTISTS: Lise Beaudry, Louise Bourque, Daniel Cockburn, Marie Dauverné, Jean-Marc Larivière, Maria Legault et Nadine Valcin
LOCATION: Bachir/Yerex Presentation Space, 401 Richmond Street West, Suite 440
