Simon Davies’ exhibit Something’s a Jar

September 27th, 2023

Simon Davies (retired faculty, Cinema | Communications) has co-curated an art exhibition, along with his wife, Carmen, which is currently running (Sept. 15-Nov. 4, 2023) at the Maison de la culture Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (3755 Botrel Ave.), corner of Côte-Saint-Antoine.

Simon described the project:

I made an open call to a number of friends and associates, with the idea being that we could gather, around an art exhibit, to reunite the community after Covid restrictions were lifted. That was awhile ago, as you can see, but finally we have opened.

Participants were asked to find a jar, remove the labels, and install something in the jar that had a reference to their 'memories, dreams and reflections'.

The only rules were; no liquids, nothing outside the jar, and it had to be presented lid down. This last rule was important since, by making this intervention, it transformed the jar into a vessel. I also wanted to make a reference and homage to the Dada movement, that took 'ready mades', mass manufactured items, that could be transformed by interventions. The most famous of these would probably be "The Fountain" (1917) by Marcel Duchamp. As you probably know, it was a urinal that he turned on its back and signed it R. Mutt. It was scandalous, but made history.

We ended up with 66 jars, a number of them made by former Dawson personnel.

Dawson alumna play The Covenant on until Dec. 3

November 16th, 2022

Dawson Alumna Alice Abracen's award-winning play, The Covenant, treads a heart-wrenching line through despair and dark humour. Beautifully crafted, the audience is transported to a heinous, immoral time in history that sadly rings too close to current and conceivable atrocities. Added to the mix is the out of control feeling of today’s fake news in override; how more than ever the spread of half-truths and lies gathers wide acceptance. Yet, at its core, the play is a love story. The Covenant has every audience member fully engaged and questioning, ‘what would I do if it was me’.

The Covenant will be playing at the Segal Centre for the Performing Arts from Nov. 15 - Dec. 3. Click on Read More to see the trailer.
