Since travelling to the Arctic to swim under giant glaciers and hang out with polar bears is out of the question for most people, the Éloize Expo has brought the Arctic to Montreal.
A new immersive exhibit called Sous Les Glaces (Below the Ice) will give you the experience of tagging along with filmmaker Mario Cyr as he explores the vast reaches of the Arctic and takes you under the frozen ocean to explore what's happening below the world's most awe-inspiring glaciers.
Jalen Frizzell has been tattooing since 2015 and is influenced by "blaxploitation movie posters of the 70s era, and the dynamics of life, death, and dreams."
Frizzell told MTL Blog that her "Jamaican-Canadian roots have motivated her to center black people in her practice. Exploring different methods of depicting black hair textures with different applications of tattoo needles is one way she presents this - as well as continuously exploring black facial features through the lens of traditional tattoo drawing styles."
Rali is the owner of XYZ Tattoo Studio and first began tattooing in 2017.
She told us that her love of "traditional hand-drawn illustrations and a graphic approach to my designs as well as my black and red colour palette are the elements that define my signature style today."
Rian Desourdie is an artist at Studio Artease in Verdun and specializes in watercolour-style tattoos.
"I love designing colourful tattoos where I can play around with artistic styles [...] and take pride in tattooing them in a way that will age well, balancing strong black linework and vibrant colour work," said Desourdie.
Jones told MTL Blog "I've been apprenticing for the last 2 years and I specialize in black and grey illustrative and traditional-inspired tattoos. I am currently working on opening a private studio with my mentor that will be a safe, inclusive place for all Montrealers to come and get tattooed!"
A new exhibit at Quebec City's Museum of Civilization, in partnership with Netflix, is immersing visitors in the world of special-effects filmmaking. It gives Quebecers a behind-the-scenes look at making the movies we know and love.
The "Special Effects!" exhibit is divided according to "the major stages in the creation of a film or television production: the office, the set and the studio," each with several interactive features.
