The McGill Art History & Communications Studies Graduate Student Association (AHCS GSA) invites you to turn a critical eye on Montreal’s 375th anniversary.
While No One Was Looking presents an art exhibition, magazine, artist/scholar panel discussion, film screening of The Saver at Le Salon 1861 , and mini on-campus exhibit, that commemorate Montreal as a city of Indigenous peoples, peoples of colour, and immigrants. The project aims to make space for dialogue and encounter around anti-colonial concepts of place and agency, foreground marginalized experiences and histories, and decenter dominant celebrations of colonialism.
The exhibition vernissage and magazine release will take place on Friday, April 28, 2017 from 7 – 11 pm at MainLine Gallery, an accessible venue on the corner of St. Laurent and Napoléon. The exhibition will remain free and open to the public for two weeks; complimentary copies of the magazine will be available.
