Montreal: WLTWSAETLV

WE LEFT THE WARM STABLE AND ENTERED THE LATEX VOID (WLTWSAETLV) is an artist residency, lecture series and project space located in François Lemieux’s Montréal apartment.

We love the format – it’s somewhat like VoCA, except for the ‘last only 20 months’ bit.

  • It is run collaboratively by exhibiting artists.
  • It presents talks, interviews and workshops.
  • It has no program.
  • It has no board of directors.
  • It has no government funding.
  • It lasts for only 20 months.
  • Its activities question current conditions of visual arts production and presentation in Québec.

Click HERE for more (somewhat cryptic) information on current and upcoming artists, including the German artist Michael Pohl, who, like Lemieux, operates an independent exhibition space, CLUB69, from his apartment in Munster, Germany.

If you’re in Montreal this Saturday, you can swing by to hear more at the Leonard and Bina Ellen Gallery this Saturday. While you’re there, definitely check out Magnetic Norths, a project by artist Charles Stankievech.

Then, on March 8, a show by Montreal painter Justin Stephens opens.
The exhibition release warns that “Sometimes Justin Stephens paintings look like an exercise in how to
clean a paintbrush.” Should be good.
