Event Artch 2019


About

Artch is an initiative whose mission is to identify, educate and disseminate the work of emerging Quebec artists in contemporary art.

The public will be part of an immersive experience during the event, enjoying a dozen free mediation activities created for all ages.

Artch is the true meeting spot for emergent contemporary art, taking place September 12th to 15th 2019, right in the centre of downtown Montreal, at the Square Dorchester. Present there will be 23 artists under 35 years old, selected by a prestigious jury in visual arts, supported par the Conseil des arts de Montréal. They will be exhibiting and selling their artworks amongst structures specially conceived for their pieces, allying design, urbanism and architecture.

The members of our jury:

Anne-Marie Ninacs
Hugues Charbonneau
Eunice Belidor
Catherine Barnabé

  • Entrepreneurial art training from May 27 to June 13, 2019
