The ArtLab’s POP-UP exhibition series presents the traces of research and creative projects carried out by Bishop’s University’s student body and faculty, as well as by other groups and members of the Sherbrooke community. Following the principles of community-based museology and micromuseology, these ephemeral art events are often collective, participatory and of an experimental nature.

POP-UP EXHIBITION #2 | Cultures croisées 2020-21 : l’art, la terre, et les racines
September 9 to October 9, 2021.
Chantal Lafond, Faustine Gruninger and Marie-Pier Ranger (students in Fine Arts) et Regine Neumann (professor in Fine Arts).
POP-UP EXHIBITION #1 | Second Sight
March 31 to April 17, 2021
Allister Aitken, Steve Breton, Lara Dion, Francine Ethier, Nicholas Gibbs, Chantal Lafond and Lily Rousseau.
This first POP-UP exhibition presents a series of sketchbook, each representing the creative process of an artist participating in this year’s Fine Arts Graduating Student’s Exhibition. These pages bring you into the artists thoughts in imagery and calculations, moving from ideas and concepts to finally arrive to the results displayed in the exhibition Intuition.
Their own intuitions were tested on paper through experimentations and thoughtful creations. Observe how they followed their gut feelings and devel- opped their conscious thoughts in the process of making the artworks present- ed inside the gallery.
