(izložba je otvorena do 15.06.2017, svaki dan između 12 i 19h)

CRVENA i Galerija Bordac  sa zadovoljstvom predstavljaju video izložbu i program performansa galerije La Centrale iz Montreala: La Centrale – Hors Les Murs.

Kroz video izložbu koja se otvara 20.05.2017 i noć perfomansa 25.05. 2017 u Galeriji Brodac u Sarajevu, umjetnice Caroline St-Laurent, Emma-Kate Guimond, Noemi McComber, Sonja Zlatanova i Virginie Jourdain će predstaviti aktivnosti, istoriju i misiju galerije La Centrale.

La Centrale – Hors Les Murs označava početak suradnje imeđu Udruženja za kulturu i umjetnost CRVENA iz Sarajeva i Montrealske galerije La Central, koja će se odvijati kroz bijenalne rezidencijalne razmjene, a čiji će fokus biti na feminističkim performativnim umjetničkim praksama. La Centrale i CRVENA, organizacije bliske po filozofiji, ciljevima organiziranja i angažmanu, će iskoristiti boravak predstavnica La Centrale u Sarajevu da bi potpisale sporazum o suradnji, koji će od 2017. godine omogućiti bosanskohercegovačkim umjetnicama rezidencijalni boravak i izložbu u Montrealu, kao i boravak quebeških umjetnica u Sarajevu svake dvije godine. Tijekom boravka u Sarajevu La Centrale će se pobliže upoznati sa radom CRVENE i radom njezinih članica, kao i aktivnostima srodnih kulturnih aktera u Sarajevu i regiji.

La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse je galerija osnovana 1973. kao jedna od prvih samo-organiziranih umjetničkih centara u Kanadskoj državi Quebec. Misija La Centrale se nadograđuje na tradiciju feminističke umjetnosti – kao platforma za suvremenu umjetnost sa uporištem u feminističkoj i rodnoj teoriji kao i u među-kulturalnim i trans-disciplinarnim praksama.

Udruženje za kulturu i umjetnost CRVENA je osnovano 8. marta 2010. kao asocijacija više od 40 članova okupljenih oko načela i kritičkog potencijala feminističke politike, te umjetnosti i aktivizma kao estetskih, društvenih i političkih alata s potencijalom za društvenu mobilizaciju i transformaciju. CRVENA djeluje interdisciplinarno, kao laboratorij za istraživanje, razmišljanje, učenje, stvaranje i razmjenu novih znanja, i nada se pokrenuti artist-in-residence program kao dodatnu programsku aktivnost.

Galerija BRODAC  je neovisni galerijski prostor osnovan 2016. sa ciljem davanja vidljivosti mladim likovnim umjetnicima i borbe protiv socio-ekonomske i poltičke opresije, kao i apatije mladih. Grupa volontera okupljena oko galerije nastoji svojim aktivnostima promovirati suvremenu umjetnost u zemlji i inozemstvu i kroz djelovanje u kuturi poboljšati kavalitetu života svih građana.

CRVENA and Gallery Brodac have the pleasure of presenting the video exhibition and program of performances La Centrale – Hors Les Murs, featuring work by the members of the gallery La Centrale from Montreal.

The artists Caroline St-Laurent, Emma-Kate Guimond, Noemi McComber, Sonja Zlatanova and Virginie Jourdain will present the activities of La Centrale along with an exhibition of videos that opens on 20.05.2017, and a series of performances starting at 19h on 25.05. 2017. Both events will take place at Gallery Brodac, Sarajevo

La Centrale – Hors Les Murs marks the beginning of a collaboration between the Association for Culture and Art CRVENA and the Montreal gallery La Centrale, a bi-annual residency exchange between the two organizations, focused on feminist performative artistic practices. La Centrale and CRVENA are organizations which have a common philosophy and vision in organizing and engagement. La Centrale’s visit to Sarajevo will be the opportunity to sign a cooperation agreement which will, as of 2017, provide Bosnian-Herzegovinian artists a residency and exhibition in Montreal, but also bring Quebecois artists to Sarajevo every two years. During their stay, La Centrale members will gain an insight into the work o CRVENA and its members, but also the work of kindred cultural organizations and individuals in Sarajevo and the region.

Founded in 1973, La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse is one of Quebec’s oldest artist-run centers. La Centrale expands on history of feminist art practices and aims to provide a platform for contemporary art that is informed by feminist and gender theory, as well as intercultural and trans-disciplinary practices.

The Association for Culture and Art CRVENA was founded on the 8th of March, 2010 in Sarajevo as an association of over 40 members, gathered around the principles and critical potential of feminist politics, art and activism as aesthetic, social and political tools with high potential for mobilization and social transformation. CRVENA is an interdisciplinary organization, operating as a laboratory for research, thinking, learning, sharing and producing knowledge, with hopes of adding an artist in residence program as one of its activities.

Gallery BRODAC is an independent gallery space established in 2016, in Sarajevo with the aim of providing visibility to young visual artists, as well as fighting social-economic, political oppression and youth indifference. The group of enthusiasts and volunteer groups around the gallery have a mission to promote and enhance contemporary art and cultural scenes in the country and internationally, in order to bring about a positive change in society.
