In anticipation of the next “official” Viva! Action Art event planned for 2009, six artist-run centres from the Montréal region are staging a “Mini” Viva!. Loosely organised around performative projects taking place this spring at La Centrale, Dare-Dare, articule, Skol, Praxis and Clark, this edition of Viva! derives its theme from a performance and workshop entitled Performance & Activism in Everyday Life presented by La Centrale, which aims to provide a space for the sharing of tactics and stories amongst peer artists. Viva!, in many respects, shares this collaborative spirit by providing a space for like-minded centres to share dissemination tactics for art practices that might not be as visible. Artists featured include Kerri Reid as well as the launch of Livraison #9, As if all were well with Stephen Wright et al. (Skol), Andrew Chartier (Praxis), Andrea Cavagnaro (Dare-Dare), The Black Market Type & Print Shop (curator: Joseph Del Pesco) and Michael Toppings (articule), Cheryl L’Hirondelle, Lori Blondeau & Adrian Stimson (La Centrale – curator: Joanne Bristol), an exhibition organised by Ayesha Hameed, Nahed Mansour, Tatiana Gomez and Leila Pourtavaf (La Centrale), and an open studio event with nearly 100 artists (Clark).
