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).


L’art, la terre et les racines is an artistic residency project initiated by the Maison des Arts St-Laurent in Compton. The project aims to initiate a dialogue between four artists, established or immigrants from the region, and four agricultural producers from the Coaticook region who have welcomed them on their farm for a year.
This POP-UP exhibition presents traces of the creative process of a collective formed by students and a professor of Fine Arts from Bishop’s University, who undertook a residency with the Ferme les Broussailles, located in Martinville. The works created during this residency are grouped in an exhibition presented at the Maison des Arts St-Laurent from September 24 to October 11, 2021.


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.
