Community Supported Art for Montréal.
That’s a fantastic idea... For that amount of money, you can’t lose. I’m sure it gives the young artists who participate, and the more established artists who participate, so much confidence to know that somebody pays attention to their work
— René Blouin (Owner, Galerie René Blouin) | CBC Daybreak Show (Aug 7, 2015)

We bet you've heard about Community Supported Agriculture - where members of a community buy shares in a farm's production and receive wonderful baskets of fruits and veggies all year long?  Well, Community Supported Art is just the same. Here at Partage Montréal CSA, we have a curator rather than a farmer, and the local artists and their unique creations are the crop.  We believe that a strong and healthy local arts community is as important as good, healthy, and local fruits and vegetables.  

Give Partage Montréal a try - we're certain that you'll be pleasantly surprised!


Partage Montreal Season 3 Collection

Partage Montreal Season 2 Collection curator: Susannah Wesley

The saying goes, ‘every picture tells a story’. In Leisure, my collaborative practice with Meredith Carruthers, the images we gravitate toward (historical art works, archival images, or snapshots) start visual conversations that sometimes turn into artworks and other times simply provide a space for thought and experimentation. For this edition of Partage, I will select an image and send it to each invited artist. In turn, they can react to the image as they choose - disregard it, work with it, or against. Six very different artworks will emerge, each potentially linked to a single image.

Bio:

Susannah Wesley is an artist based in Montreal. Since 2004 she has been working collaboratively with Meredith Carruthers under the name ‘Leisure’. Recent solo exhibitions include, Arranging Time/Chorégraphie Temporelle at ESP (Toronto, 2015) and Dualité/Dualité at Artexte (Montreal, 2015), as well as the group exhibition The Let Down Reflex at The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (NYC, 2016). Wesley received an MA in Art History from Concordia in 2008 and an MFA from the Glasgow School of Art in 2002. Previously she was a member of the notorious ‘Leeds 13’ art collective in the UK.
