Cultural Days Images du Monde Arabe

Friday, October 18, 1996 - 20:00 - Thursday, October 31, 1996 - 17:00

Organized under the theme of the encounter, the cultural days Images du Monde Arabe are a special time bringing different perspectives on a culture with many facets. They offer the Montreal public, for a third year, a window into the reality of an art and a culture made of contrasts and diversity by inviting a number of avant-garde artists of Arab origin. They were held in three sets of activities:

  • Des images et des mots, Friday, October 18th, maison de la culture Côte-des-Neiges. Evening of poetry and Eastern music with several Quebecers and Canadian artists from Arab origin who have devoted part of their work to offer their own vision of the Arab world;
  • Festival des arts visuels, from October 23rd to 31st. Exhibition of paintings, sculptures and photographs with, amongst others, Joseph Chahfé and Si Mohamed El-Fennene;
  • Journées cinématographiques, from October 24th to 27th, ONF cinema and maison de la culture Côte-des-neiges. Look at the latest film productions that focus on the Arab World (documentary and fiction) and meetings with directors.
