A project by Kim Kielhofner
Hotel Atlas: Collected Stories and Fragments is a multi-video installation that combines still and moving images, as well as objects that the artist has collected over a period of many years from discarded encyclopedias, instruction manuals, beauty guides and digital archives. She arranges and reconfigures this material, proposing connections between seemingly unrelated elements from the gestures of screen stars to taxonomies of natural history to writers working at the borders of speech.
Explore the second part of the artistic and discursive program TERMS focused on the notion of “investment” from a psychoanalytic perspective, now available online.
This publication includes an essay by Alain Deneault, professor of philosophy at Université de Moncton, a series of photographs from 1990 by Montreal-based artist Sorel Cohen, as well as a psychoanalytic-influenced ficto-criticism by art theorist, writer, and psychiatrist Jeanne Randolph.
Mumtalakat | ممتلكات
Meaning possessions in Arabic, Mumtalakat centers on eight interviews between Emma Haraké and local Arabic speakers invited to reflect on their migration experience through a selection of personal objects that accompanied them.
ويرتكز مشروع «ممتلكات» على ثماني مقابلات في التاريخ الشفوي مع مقيمين متحدثين ناطقين باللغة العربية للتفكير في تجربتهم في الهجرة من خلال مجموعة مختارة من الأشياء الشخصية التي رافقتهم.

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.
