Exeko implemented the Métissages Urbains program with the idea to work on social transformation issues. This program facilitates encounters between artists and the community by using creativity and collaboration as a pretext to gather citizens from diverse backgrounds around common and accessible projects.
2915 is the total number of persons who took part in this program of collaborative creation in which professional artists and citizens join forces to produce works in various formats: video, audio, poetry, engraving, photography, painting, collage, installation, diary.
In total, 20 recognized artists from Quebec and elsewhere are taking part to the event: Isabelle Anguita, Jani Bellefleur Kaltush, Soufia Bensaid, Floriane Davin, Stéphane Dionne, Suzanne Doucet, Marie-Pierre Gadoua, Elise Hardy, Emmanuelle Jacques, Emily Laliberté, Catherine Lalonde, Kiliane Olivier, Colleen Lashuk, Caroline Laplante, Aïda Lorrain, Alexandra Pastena, Frederic Peloquin, Lili Sohn, Guillaume Vermette and Anouk Verviers.
The 2915 exhibition demonstrates this process of inclusion. It is therefore meant to be interactive and offers multiple experiences.
OPEN HOURS 3 PM-8PM
