Residency – Est Nord Est, Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, QC  


For over twenty years, Est-Nord-Est has been welcoming and supporting artists from Canada but also all over the world. Last year, Est-Nord-Est added a new residency for Canadian contemporary art curators and authors because we are convinced of the importance of cross-pollination between the words and the artwork.

With this in mind, we would like to invite you, artists and curators/authors, to submit an application for a 2014 residency. Our application process is online on our Website at the following URL :

O’Born Contemporary Emerging Artist Exhibition


O’Born Contemporary is pleased present its third annual exhibition of emerging artists in January 2014. Works in all mediums will be accepted, provided they address the theme of Romanticism in today’s secular context. Please use the text below for guidance on this theme. Selected works will be exhibited at O’Born Contemporary with a prize awarded for best-in-show.

Romanticism Now

Anachronisms are ubiquitous in contemporary society—vintage goods are in high demand, musical trends support the recirculation of old bands that are then re-cast into history’s pool of dismissed creative out-put, and, though never identical in aesthetic, Avant Garde art movements emerge at least once per decade, placing the tenets of Dada in the context of Fluxus, and those of Fluxus in the context of today’s Anti-art progenitors.

Remarkably, the political disruption and technological race occupying the world’s attention in our current state has disguised the resurfacing of another artistic movement – one that is so philosophically and intellectually subtle, it might go unnoticed. Romanticism in the 21st century has emerged not only in reaction to the technological revolution, but further, due to a need for wonder in the stark light of today’s political realities. Do symbolic and, further, geographically symbolic, narratives still have relevance within secular discourses today? Perhaps because technological advancement has caught up with our own imaginings of the virtual, art has returned to ruminating on antique subjects such as physical endurance; the crossover between histories and geographies; melancholy and the solitary; the terror of the sublime, and Arcadian landscapes.
