Architecture + Design Film Series:
The Gardener

Stream here March 17-21
Directed by Sebastien Chabot
2016, USA, 88 Minutes

The Gardener is a film that reflects upon the meaning of gardening and its impact on our lives. Shortly before his passing at the age of 86, influential gardener and plantsman Frank Cabot recounts his personal quest for perfection at Les Quatre Vents, his twenty-acre English style garden and summer estate nestled amongst the rolling hills of Charlevoix County, Quebec. Created over 75 years and three generations, it is an enchanted place of beauty and surprise, a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century. Through the words of Cabot and his family, and with the participation of gardening experts and writers, the film looks back at this remarkable man’s personal story and the artistic philosophy that gave birth to one of the greatest gardens in the world.

Virtual Artist Talk: Meg Lipke: In the Making

Thursday, March 25, 2:00
Register here

BCA presents an interactive, online program with contemporary painter Meg Lipke and her current solo exhibition, In the Making, now on view at the BCA Center. Challenging conventional notions of painting, Lipke’s colorful, shaped abstractions are cut, stained, painted, and sewn together to create work that projects from the wall, or rests upon the floor. For her talk, the artist discusses the evolution of her painting practice over the last few years as seen in works drawn from her show.
