En Masse x Fine Arts Montreal

22 May


Thanks to The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Fred Canon and En Masse for the video.

In October 2011, En Masse has been invited to take part to the very popular Big Bang, among the likes of Wadji Mouawad, Denys Arcand and Pierre Lapointe. Once the show was over in January, the whole room disappeared under the coats of white paint. You can see pictures of the event on our website and can get poster and catalog of the show through Galerie Pangée in Montreal.

En Masse x New York City

23 Mar


Thanks to Fred Canon and En Masse for the video.

March 2012, En Masse hit the road again, and this time the destination was the Big Apple for the New York City’s annual Armory Arts Week. Armory Week is a cornerstone of the visual arts community’s annual calendar, and we were thrilled to be able to strut our stuff there, earn new fans and find new friends to play with on the wall and on Johnny Leo’s van.

En Masse x San Diego

Thanks to Fred Caron and En Masse for the video!

Fred writes… “In September 2011, a series of chance encounters led us on our first international adventure. En Masse traveled down the hot, dusty road to California for the sun-drenched, palm-shaded beachfront property of San Diego and its official Contemporary Art Fair. Ann Bertchold and her partner, the acting directors of the SDAF, invited us to create a work in a 12’x12’x12’ kiosk. This little box became a home away from home for four days of black-and-white drawing bad-assery. I can’t tell you what an absolute pleasure it was to work meet a couple of seriously stand-up citizens!”

En Masse x Miami x Part 2

Thanks to Fred Caron and En Masse for the video!

Fred writes… “At the end of November, the En Masse Art Initiative flew down to Miami to take part of the Miami Art Basel events. With the help of Sodec Quebec and Galerie Pangée, EM teamed up with Scope Art Fair, Fountain Art Fair, Safewalls, Primary Flight and the Found store to create multiple work of art. During 10 days, the team grew exponentially, adding members from all around the globe; Tel-Aviv, Montreal, Brooklyn, Woodstock, Staten Island, San Fransico, San Diego, Miami etc. By the time we came back, EM had paint two 8′x8′ letter shaped canvases, two 4′x8′ bottle shaped canvases, one 12′x8′ wood panel, one 30′x50′ outdoor wall (that’s without the Ian Ross 30′x40′ black and white portion of the building and the dumpster by Werd x Ian Ross), one 12′x12′ outdoor wall, four plywood bubbles, and one cigar box. Thanks to everyone who took part of this major event in EM history. Here’s Part Two of the adventures of En Masse in Miami.

En Masse x Ste Foy

Thanks to Fred Caron and En Masse for the video!

Montreal-based art initiative EN MASSE is best described as an ongoing exercise in irreverent, improvised collaborative drawing — a boundary-blurring cocktail of high and lowbrow culture, pop imagery fragmented like shattered glass in a spontaneous, multi-genre, black-on-white collision.
