We will no longer reopen on October 7th as planned. We have to close down yet again following directives from the government in order to counter the pandemic. We are in the process of installing Going To, Making Do, Passing Just the Same and it will be ready when we reopen, we hope, later this fall. In the meantime we will continue to work on site and at home to offer you online programming that resonates with the issues and approaches developed in Edith Brunette and François Lemieux’s project.
Landscape of Hope: Collective reflection. Improvisation. Transformation. Social pedagogy
Join us for the second part of a two-part session with social pedagogy collective Project Someone on their project Landscape of Hope, as part of the online program, Radiant Power.
Launch at the end of October
Terms is a new semiannual online discursive and artistic program that will individually unpack, one at a time, a series of broad and polysemous terms that are employed today to address a range of sociopolitical issues in contemporary society. Terms will look at how these widely circulated keywords echo within different forms of research, writing and works of art. The term “vulnerability” will launch the series this fall with Concordia doctoral candidate in Geography, Planning and Environmental Studies, Mostafa Henaway. In January, a second iteration of the term will be presented.
Extended until 2021
August 17, 2020 – January 5, 2021

STATUS FOR ALL!
The Gallery’s programming is free and open for all, in absence of fees we encourage you to make a one-time or recurrent donation to Solidarity Across Borders, a network of migrants and their allies confronting injustice within the immigration and refugee system through education, support, and political mobilization.
Your contribution will go to their mutual aid fund. Distributed to Montrealers without permanent immigration status to help pay for rent, food, medication and basic utilities, donations to the fund are one way to offer material support to their struggle and the larger movement for complete and immediate regularization of immigration status.
Edith Brunette and François Lemieux
This project was made possible by the support of the Leonard & Bina Ellen Program in Support of Artistic Production.
This project by artists Edith Brunette and François Lemieux seeks to outline, collectively, and through a series of exploratory gestures, a few proposals on the question of inhabiting as put forward from their multiple and tenuous attachments to the land. How does one reconnect with the earth, with the powers that lie dormant between it and us, and with this territory that has been damaged by our colonialist and capitalist ways of living and dying? How can we pay better attention to what binds us together in order to thwart our economy’s undesirable practices, temporalities, and ways of being?
