Galerie d'art Optica

  • Collectivité
  • 1972-

La Galerie d'art Optica a été officiellement fondée en janvier 1972, par William E. Ewing lorsque des pressions d'artistes l'ont convaincu du besoin urgent d'un centre de diffusion de la photographie. Initiallement nommée Galeries photographiques du Centaur, elle logeait au sein même du théâtre, dans le Vieux-Montréal. Son mandat était la diffusion de l'art contemporain.

Après des rénovations en 1974, la galerie changea son nom pour Optica. Après des débuts exclusivement consacrés à la photographie, le centre ne tarda pas à amorcer, avec l'exposition Camerart (Decembre 1974 - Janvier 1975), une ouverture vers les autres disciplines. La galerie se consacra désormais la moitié de ses activités à la photo, et l'autre à d'autres courants d'art.

Pendant la saison 1976-1977, des changements de politiques internes permettent à la galerie d'ouvrir ses portes à l'art conceptuel, aux performances, à la peinture et à la sculpture. En 1977, la galerie ajoute à son nom «un centre au service de l'art contemporain». Durant la même période, sa programmation est aussi modifiée et une section de cinéma expérimental y fait son apparition.

Le centre est dirigé par un Conseil d'administration composé de quinze membres provenant majoritairement du milieu culturel. Ceux-ci sont appelés à participer de façon active, aux projets de la galerie et à s'impliquer auprès des associations dont la galerie fait partie, c'est-à dire le Regroupement des centres d'artistes autogérés du Québec, le Regroupement d'artistes des centres alternatifs et la Société des Musées Québécois.

La Galerie est maintenant subventionnée par les conseils des Arts (du Canada, du Québec et de la Communauté urbaine de Montréal).

  • 1945 -

Victor Teboul, écrivain, journaliste et enseignant, est né le 9 mai 1945 à Alexandrie, en Égypte. En 1956, avec ses parents et sa sœur Flora, il quitte ce pays pour la France à la suite de la guerre de Suez lorsque de nombreuses familles juives sont expulsées d’Égypte. Sa famille,
comme quelques centaines de réfugiés juifs, est hébergée au couvent de Notre-Dame-de-l'Osier dans l'Isère, avant de gagner la région parisienne où Victor Teboul fréquente de 1958 à 1962 l’école privée The English School of Paris située à Andrésy en Seine-et-Oise. Il poursuit ensuite à Paris ses études à l’École supérieure de journalisme (1962-1963).

La famille Teboul immigre au Québec en 1963. Victor s’inscrit à l’école de journalisme, Studio 5316, à Montréal. En 1965, il poursuit ses études d’abord au Sir George Williams High School, puis en 1966 à l’Université Sir George Williams (aujourd'hui Université Concordia) où il obtient un B.A. en 1969. Il s’inscrit la même année à l’Université McGill où il obtient en 1971 un diplôme de maîtrise en lettres françaises et québécoises et où il est chargé de cours de 1971 à 1973. Il est ensuite professeur invité au Collège universitaire de Hearst, affilié à l'Université Laurentienne, aux sessions d'été de 1974, 1975 et 1976 ; il y enseigne la littérature québécoise et les communications. Durant les 30 années suivantes, soit de 1977 à 2007, il enseigne la littérature au Cégep Lionel-Groulx de Sainte-Thérèse. Tout en menant sa carrière d’enseignant, il poursuit sa spécialisation en littérature québécoise à l’Université de Montréal où il complète en 1982 une thèse de doctorat sur l’hebdomadaire libéral Le Jour, fondé en 1937 par Jean-Charles Harvey. Il est également chargé de cours en histoire à l’Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) entre 1989 et 1997.

À la fin des années 1960 et au début des années 1970, Victor Teboul est journaliste-pigiste auprès du Nouveau Samedi, de La Patrie et de la revue L'Actualité. Il collabore aussi au magazine Perspectives et au mensuel Nouveau Monde, premier magazine juif de langue française publié au Québec, dont il devient le rédacteur en chef en 1972.

Comme écrivain, Victor Teboul publie en 1977 Mythe et images du Juif au Québec (Éditions Lagrave), un essai qui provoqua un débat public puisqu’il remettait en question la représentation des Juifs et d'Israël dans la littérature québécoise et les médias. En 1984, il publie sa thèse de doctorat sous le titre : Le Jour : Émergence du libéralisme moderne au Québec (HMH Hurtubise). Plus tard, en 1999, il publie son premier roman Que Dieu vous garde de l'homme silencieux quand il se met soudain à parler (Les Intouchables), où est décrite l’intégration d’un jeune Juif sépharade dans la société québécoise. Suivront par la suite d’autres romans et essais tels que La lente découverte de l’étrangeté (Les Intouchables, 2002), et Les Juifs du Québec : in Canada we trust : réflexion sur l’identité québécoise (L’ABC de l’édition, 2016). De 1981 à 1986, Victor Teboul dirige la revue Jonathan, publication mensuelle qu'il a fondée au sein du Comité Canada-Israël, organisme dont il est le directeur régional. Cette revue visait à faire connaître le pluralisme de la communauté juive et de la société israélienne. Dans le cadre de ses fonctions de conseiller en communications au ministère des Communautés culturelles et de l’Immigration du Québec, poste qu’il occupe de 1989 à 1991, il réalise la publication «Une femme, un vote» parue à l’occasion du 50e anniversaire de l’obtention du droit de vote par les femmes québécoises.

En 1979 et 1980, Victor Teboul participe activement à la conception et réalisation d’une série d’émissions sur la communauté juive intitulée « En tant que Juifs » diffusées dans le cadre du programme « Planète » de Radio-Québec dont il est l’animateur et le recherchiste. En décembre 1981, il réalise une entrevue diffusée en mai 1982 à la radio de Radio-Canada, avec René Lévesque, alors premier ministre du Québec, portant sur les rapports entre Juifs et Québécois. L’entrevue fait partie d’une série de 14 émissions sur la Communauté juive du Québec, dont Victor Teboul est l’auteur, qui a été diffusée sur la chaîne culturelle de la radio de Radio-Canada en 1982. L’intégralité de l’entrevue avec René Lévesque est publiée en 2001 dans René Lévesque et la communauté juive (Les Intouchables). Victor Teboul est également l'auteur d’autres séries radiophoniques diffusées sur la chaîne culturelle de Radio-Canada, notamment d’une série sur le 40e anniversaire de l’État d’Israël, diffusée en 1988, et d’une autre sur la diversité intitulée «Le Québec au Pluriel» diffusée en 1989. Il est enfin l’auteur d’une série de 8 émissions radiophoniques sur le libéralisme au Québec, diffusée à la radio de Radio-Canada en 1988, inspiré de son ouvrage Le Jour : Émergence du libéralisme moderne au Québec.

De 1983 à 1987, il est membre du Conseil supérieur de l’éducation et de 1987 à 1989 du Conseil de presse.
