Christine Fellows & Philippe Mailhot
Winnipeg singer/songwriter Christine Fellows joins with Museum Director Philippe Mailhot to share their respective observations on Fellows’ 6-month Winnipeg Arts Council-funded residency and commission. The commission, a song cycle and multidisciplinary performance series entitled Reliquary/Reliquaire, was presented in the Museum chapel to packed houses in September, 2009. Fellows and Mailhot’s presentation will be followed by a screening of an excerpt of the Reliquary/Reliquaire DVD, which serves as the legacy of this unique community collaboration.
