Fall 2016 Program

The Galerie de l'UQAM unveils its programming for fall 2016. To open the season, the public will be able to view the work of Yann Pocreau, artist in residence at the Galerie this summer. His project addressing the links between art, architecture, health and light will be presented in parallel with the exhibition Away from Keyboard by Lieven Meyer, focusing on reconfigurations of classical sculpture in the Web 2.0 era. Then, as part of La Biennale de Montréal, the Galerie will host works by Luis Jacob and the Thirteen Black Cats collective.


Starting in September, the Casino Luxembourg will be the last stop on the tour of the exhibition Aude Moreau, The Political Nightfall, while the virtual exhibition The Painting Project continues in the Virtual Museum of Canada.  + more information
