New energy in the Quebec contemporary art scene

contemporary art 004.jpgBy many accounts, it's an exciting time for contemporary art in Quebec.

Several new spaces have opened recently, thanks to big investments by private collectors.

Among those is the Arsenal contemporary art space -- a massive shipyard that has been converted into exhibition and gallery space. It houses Galerie René Blouin and Galerie Division.

Jeanette takes the pulse of the scene with three major players:

-René Blouin, owner of the gallery of the same name

-Jean-Francois Belisle, director of Arsenal (pictured)

-Jeanie Riddle, director of the gallery Parisian Laundry.
