Painting in Canada

Virtual exhibition produced by the Galerie de l'UQAM and the Virtual Museum of Canada, with UQAM's Audiovisual and Multimedia Production Service.


Montreal Museums Day 2017

For a second year, the Galerie de l’UQAM is proud to take part in Montreal Museum Day on Sunday, May 28. On this occasion, the Galerie de l'UQAM is calling for an awakening of consciousness through three projects: a work by the Guerrilla Girls as well as the exhibitions of Gilberto Esparza and Charles-Antoine Blais Métivier. These artists, in their own way, analyze the contemporary world and propose new alternatives to rethink its structures and practices. At the Galerie, many mediators will allow the public, in a convivial atmosphere, to appreciate the richness and the complexity of the works presented.
