Recap on the discussion "Art and Horror"

Montréal, Tuesday, May 17, 2016 — May 12th, we organized a discussion with the help of Amnistie internationale Canada francophone (AICF) bringing together artists and activists to debate the issue of presenting horror in art.

The discussion, moderated by the filmmaker Patricio Henriquez, gave voice to Pauline Vaillancourt (Stage Director of the opera), Kristin Norderval (Composer and Soloist), Patricia Isasa (Human rights activist in Argentina) and Gilles Sabourin (Activist and Vice-President of the AICF).

The artist Dominique Blain, who presented a video installation titled Émergence, also contributed to the discussion by offering her point of view.
