Campagne OPTICA 35 ans
October 4th 2007
Concert bénéfice avec Pierre Lapointe

October 4th 2007, OPTICA is celebrating 35 years of production in contemporary art. Since its foundation in 1972, the centre has been at the forefront in promoting artists that have earned Montreal an international reputation. Recognized on the local, national, and international scenes, OPTICA has an exceptional vantage point on the emergence of a new generation of artists reflecting the vitality of this city’s vibrant culture.

On October 4th, we invite you to join us in celebrating this anniversary and artistic energy at the Monument-National. Become a partner in our forthcoming projects by purchasing one or more tickets to our benefit concert featuring the highly original Pierre Lapointe. Rounding out the evening is an exhibition of works by visual artists embodying the vitality of creative endeavour in Quebec — BGL, Gwenaël Bélanger, Michel de Broin, Manon De Pauw, Pascal Grandmaison, Isabelle Hayeur and Emmanuelle Léonard.



During the VIP cocktail before the show, come meet the distinguished members of our honorary committee: Honorary Chair, Alice Keung, Senior Vice President and CIO, Information Technology, at the National Bank of Canada, Monique Giroux, host on Radio Canada’s Première Chaîne, Pierre-François Ouellette, director of Galerie Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain, and Pascal Grandmaison, artist represented by Galerie René Blouin. Also in attendance will be the artists whose works are presented in the exhibition.

By purchasing a ticket, you automatically make a donation! A donation, in fact, that will be tripled by virtue of the Gouvernement du Québec’s Placements Culture pairing program. Management of endowment funds will be placed in the care of the Foundation of Greater Montreal for a period of ten years. Your donation or attendance of the concert therefore represents a significant gesture toward OPTICA’s future. Help us meet the challenge of ensuring the centre’s continued activity in the production of exhibitions, symposia, and publications.

Your contribution will also help launch the William A. Ewing Visual Arts Research and Residency Program, in honour of OPTICA’s founding director. This annual program, which will award recipients a $25,000 grant, also includes an educational component addressing young artists and the public alike. Be among the first contributors to an innovative program fostering research and creative work in contemporary art!
