EGGSPRESSIONIST ART

Eggspressionist Art is coming back for its fourth edition. For the first time, in collaboration with Station 16 Urban Art Gallery, the public was invited for the creative moment! A dozen emerging and established artists took over its exhibit space to let their imagination run wild.

A tribute to the egg, symbol of spring and renewal shared by cultures worldwide, the migratory exhibit is landing in the Quartier, bringing the spotlight on the poetry of this unique shape.

The brand new brood will nest at the fountain of Square Quartier DIX30, while the works from previous years inhabit its Interior Mall, the hall, near Brasserie T! as well as the GUEST EXPERIENCE SERVICES at 6000 Boul. de Rome.

Inspiration through the ages

Eggspressionist art is a nod to the ritual of painting eggs, practiced for generations around the world as a symbol of rebirth and new life. The practice of decorating eggs goes back 60,000 years in Africa. The oldest discovered examples from Persian and Egyptian cultures are over 5,000 years. The pysanka tradition in Europe dates back at least 1,100 years. Many of these traditions are alive and well today, as evidenced by the Ukrainian Easter egg festival in Lviv, the Nowruz egg festival in Tehran, the Eurasian Garden Spirits in Japan and The Big Egg Hunt in London, New York and Dublin.

From April 17 to May 26
