//At a distance – from within// draws from the allegory of the seed as an entity that creates a sense of rhizomatic placemaking. This relational form of placemaking refers then to the flourishing of communities, practices, and exchanges that come from diverse and multiple diasporas. The exhibition explores the concept of diaspora through the use of texts by diasporic Caribbean writers, such as Stuart Hall, and Édouard Glissant, among others.

Art POP x Projet Tabloïd 
September 20th to October 19th in the urban space.
By focusing on accessibility and cultural democratization, Projet Tabloïde hopes to become a showcase for the work of emerging and professional artists. By taking place directly in the urban space and adopting an ephemeral program, Tabloid seeks to enliven the curiosity of passers-by and to punctuate their wandering with a framework for contemplation. Echoing the traditions of street art and the reappropriation of public space, the images are installed using the wheatpaste technique in an unconventional format. The result is a unique finish that marks the passage of pedestrians while highlighting the work of the creators.

It will feature the work of Holly Chang who is part of the exhibition //At a distance – from within//

Par Nair, her touch (2022), hand embroidery on white wedding veil and white tulle gloves installed with artificial marigold flowers

POP Montreal is thrilled to renew our collaboration with LOVE (Québec) to present //Time Metaphor//, an exhibition of an artwork made during a summer youth leadership camp. LOVE is a non-profit organization which seeks to support youth with programs that teach them about healthy relationships, building emotional intelligence, and that help them overcome the challenges they face. For this year’s LOVE and POP Montreal collaboration, a creative workshop was led by artists Dayna Danger and Megan Kanerahtenha:wi Whyte. The participating artists created a triptych to represent the past, present, and future relationships between humanity and nature across time, as well as the need for compassion towards the environment, oneself, and others.

ART POP x Atelier de chronotopies urbaines  UQAM

Setlists – by Véronique Côté

September 28th to October 1st, 4 pm to 8 pm
Reception, Thursday, September 29th, 6 pm -, 1563 rue Saint Denis
A satellite exhibition will be held at the Rialto Studio from September 28 until October 2, from 5 pm to 8 pm. 

Passionate about music and screen printing, Véronique mobilizes a counter approach to the digital era. Her work promotes the tangible and the objectification of what could be ephemeral, a past moment. Her work on setlists explores our relationship to time experienced individually at a concert. She translates it in a fixed and timeless reconstruction. An encapsulated memory. An artifact of the near future. The setlists presented in these works are stripped of part of their context. They are objects exhibited and presented in an unexpected poetry. This project is presented with the precious collaboration of UQAM’s Atelier de chronotopies urbaines.
