“Ici et ailleurs, de nouvelles regions du monde” gives a voice to artists, curators and critics working in Quebec and the “Global South” zone (Africa, South and Central America, Asia). It examines new currents in the art world and the new cultural references emerging in a globalized world.

An initiative of Dominique Fontaine, this is the first in a series of events exploring artistic exchanges between Quebec and the countries of the Global South. Artists Steve Bates and Romeo Gongora will share their residency experiences in countries not generally considered prime destinations for most Quebec artists. Steve Bates is back from a residency at the Waaw Centre for Art and Design in Saint-Louis du Sénégal and Romeo Gongora recently participated in the first international workshop held at the Kin Art Studio in Kinshasa (DRC). They will present some of the work created while in residence.

The lectures will be offered in French and English, depending on guest:

Steve Bates (English), Dominique Fontaine (French), Romeo Gongora (French)

Sunday, February 10:
Steve Bates Lecture
Winnipeg Art Gallery

2:00 pm

Steve Bates will be giving a contextualizing lecture on Janet Cardiff's 40 Part Motet which will be on exhibition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery from February 1, 2013 to April 28, 2013.


Janet Cardiff, Forty-Part Motet, 2001.

Taking Janet Cardiff’s 40 Part Motet as a starting point, Steve Bates will place this work within the larger scope of sound art and its related technologies. Working from the idea that sound art exists not as a separate genre from visual art, but within its canon, as well as looking at it’s shared and separate history from music, this talk will outline sound art’s history of voice, technology and acoustic space.

40 Part Motet utilizes electro-magnetic technology and voice that is disembodied, displaced, and distributed through space; all tropes of sound art and the technologies of recorded sound. To stand inside 40 Part Motet is to experience Thomas Tallis’ Spem in Alium in a sort of exploded acoustic space where the listener’s experience is distorted in scale and location revealing a new psychoacoustic space spread over time.
