Mémoire de l'avenir 2023 - An intergenerational urban poster exhibition

Memories that lull us to sleep (2023)



Emplacements Mémoire de l'avenir 2023

Art Urbain Montréal and Art Souterrain present their exhibition for summer 2023: Mémoire de l’avenir – Memories that lull us to sleep. This urban poster exhibition project was born out of a desire to create relationships between different generations of Quebec artists.

The exhibition, curated by Camille Larivée, is made up of 3 pairs, each comprising of an emerging artist and an established artist. These encounters allow us to immerse ourselves in Quebec art, in our everyday lives, and to reflect on the progression of certain themes in today’s artistic imagination.

From July to September, we invite you to take a stroll through the streets of Montréal · Tiohtià:ke and catch a glimpse of these reproductions of artworks displayed on the palisades of Publicité Sauvage. By scanning the QR codes on them, you can learn more about the artists, the curatorial vision and access the podcasts created for this project.

Art direction, graphic design and realization: Taís da Costa

Cultural mediation component

During the summer of 2023, mediators/artists Rosalie DesRochers and Marie-Denise Douyon led cultural mediation and creation workshops with young participants in the Services des Loisirs Angus-Bourbonnière (SLAB) day camp in Rosemont. These workshops are intrinsically linked to the works of the 2023 edition. We are happy to renew this collaboration which allows us to apply our aim of intergenerational sharing.
