|MIAQ moves to Méduse|
|Quebec City, June 19 2013 – The team of Manifestation internationale d’art de Québec (MIAQ) is happy to announce the moving of its offices to the Méduse Cooperative as of July 31 2013. This change will be accompanied by a rebranding, to be presented in the fall.
The organization returns to its place of origin, since MIAQ first began at Méduse in 2002. Mériol Lehmann, chairman of the board of directors of the Méduse Cooperative, is delighted to welcome MIAQ as a new permanent member-organization: "Through the years, MIAQ has created strong bonds and artistic affinities with the Méduse organizations. Thus, it is with enthusiasm that we look forward to the arrival of this team which will benefit from a work-oriented and stimulating environment, favourable to exchanges and future collaborations". Next spring, MIAQ will present the 7th edition of the Manif d’art, an international biennial of contemporary art which gathers together nearly 30 regional cultural organizations.
Manifestation internationale d’art de Québec is a non-profit organization and a recognized charity organization. Its primary mandate is to promote investigative and experimental art by showcasing cutting-edge major trends in visual art from Québec, Canada and abroad. Addressing a varied public, the organization establishes contexts for non-conventional creation and exhibition, thereby fostering enquiry into fresh issues within contemporary art.
Méduse is a cooperative for art, cultural and community based producers and distributors that opened its doors in 1995. Located in Quebec’s Saint-Roch neighbourhood, the 4,000 square-metre building houses nine non-profit organizations that all play an active role at the forefront of their respective fields. These are : Antitube, l’Atelier de la mezzanine, Avatar, la Bande Vidéo, Engramme, l’Œil de Poisson, les Productions Recto-Verso, Spirafilm et VU.
