Halloween is right around the corner so why not get into the spooky spirit at the Humanorium.
This fair celebrates the strange and unusual and is a nod to the travelling carnivals of the 19th and 20th century.
But this carnival comes with a twist as all of its attractions are created by contemporary artists.
Take a ride on the shopping-cart carousel, check out cabinets of curiosities packed with assorted sculptures, photographs and soundscapes. And don’t miss the bone-chilling Museum of Death. It’s part travelling exhibit, part freak show and a perfect event to check out as the Halloween season kicks off!
Humanorium will feature works from the following artists:
- Le Carrousel, BGL (Quebec, CA
- Le Musée de la mort, Jack Burman (Toronto, CA)
- Le Treak show, Joan Fontcuberta (Barcelona, SP)
- La Chambre des curiosités 1, Djino Cantin (Quebec, CA)
- La Chambre des curiosités 2, Louis Fortier (Montreal, CA)
- Le Petit acousmonium, Érick d’Orion (Montreal, CA)
- Le Stand de tir, Marc Séguin (Montreal, CA)
- Sirenomena, Dgino Cantin (Québec, CA)
- Zoltar le cadavre exquis, Théâtre Rude Ingénierie (Quebec, CA)
- La Machine à vue, Eruoma Awashish and Nicolas Lévesque (Roberval / Saguenay, CA)
