PERF @ AXENÉO7

Attended the opening reception for AXENÉO7‘s PERF.
It is their first annual performance art event. Artists from Cameroon, Canada, France and Palestine will congregate in the Gatineau region to showcase some of the world’s most provocative and engaging live work.

Local talents Aymara Alvarado (Gatineau) and Matt Miwa (Ottawa) will join internationally acclaimed performers Raeda Saadeh (Jerusalem, Palestine) and Jean Jacques Etame (Yaoundé, Cameroon) for a performance art event like never before seen in the National Capital Region.

Special events include the launch of Desire Change: Contemporary Feminist Art in Canada and a special intervention by Nicolas Rivard — La fatigue culturelle (Montreal).

Opening night had performances by Emmanuelle Gibello and Matt Miwa.
There was also a demonstration by Jonathan Sitthiphonh.
Really liked Hazel Meyer’s art installation called Muscle Panic.
