FRO 2014: Opening night and the 4th wall exhibition launch Get you tickets Join the event on Facebook   The 4th Wall: Make the Invisible Visible is a project of the Michaëlle Jean Foundation, with the collaboration of several prestigious museums, supported by TD Bank Group and the FRO foundation. The goal is to give a voice to and a national profile to young creators, often excluded from society, by opening the doors of our major cultural institutions and by helping them to reach a wide audience. What is the 4th Wall? In theatre, the 4th wall is an imaginary screen that creates a virtual separation between actor and spectator. Painting and the visual arts in general establish, between artwork and the public, a similar device that requires a frontal reading, evidence that might be an illusion of transparency: that which Magritte called the betrayal of images, when he painted a hyperrealist pipe and wrote on the same painting, “This is not a pipe.” A Provocative Undertaking There are therefore many ways to cross the 4th wall and to make the invisible visible. The Michaëlle Jean Foundation chose to invite young creators to break down the invisible walls that create solitudes between individuals and communities across Canada. In that spirit, the Foundation is offering museum space and bursaries to youth from disadvantaged backgrounds, often cut off from museums, so that they can produce original art that conveys their experiences, ideas and challenges. On display for the public to see, their work provokes debate and builds solutions. A National Conversation Public forums, networking and virtual exchanges will also be organized to ignite and sustain national dialogue on the social issues raised by the exhibitions. The results will undoubtedly confront clichés and challenge received ideas, while reminding us of universal values like justice, beauty, liberty, spirituality and the march of history. From there will emerge the ideal of a more cohesive, solidarity-based society, liberated from the shackles of inequality and injustice. 4th Wall Exhibitions Near You Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal, from February 5 to March 30, on the occasion of Black History Month and FRO Festival 2014.
