Engaged in current and breaking artistic enquiry, l’Œil de Poisson (Fish eye) is actively committed to topical issues within contemporary art, the centre encompasses a full spectrum of visual arts and features a professional infrastructure able to respond to the varied interests of its members and the community.

Highly involved in multimedia and inter/multidisciplinarity, the centre promotes experimental art and breakthrough practices, thereby stimulating transfers and mergers between disciplines. Part of Méduse since 1995 — a complex housing 10 production and/or exhibition venues — l’Œil de Poisson offers artists and the public an outstanding location for exchange, generating the type of energy that is essential to creative development.

The preeminent feature of l’Œil de Poisson’s mandate remains its commitment to its immediate cultural environment.

Simultaneously engaged in exhibition and production, the centre seeks to respond to the multiple concerns and avenues of contemporary art through widely diverse activities in its gallery and its production workshops.

Whether through exhibitions; the production or presentation of live events; collaborative projects involving in-house production facilities; artist residencies; local, provincial, national or international exchanges; and publishing, the centre relies on multiple fields of interest to bear witness to the practices and investigations of art being made here, now.

The centre encourages unusual and contextual exhibitions, first-run multidisciplinary projects or events, and original enquiry.

Workshop residencies are offered to artists selected as part of the annual programming. Possibility of a residency, by selection, to support an artist’s practice or a specific project: submit project and visual support. Following acceptance of a residency project, it may be possible to use l’Œil de Poisson workshop facilities free of charge. Additional production studios within the Méduse complex may be rented, pending availability.
