For the entirety of the 2020-2021 season, Galerie de l’UQAM will present QUADrature, a virtual project in five acts, curated successively by Diane Gistal, Ariane De Blois, the Musée d’art actuel / Département des invisibles and Bénédicte Ramade. Montréal design studio LOKI has been tasked with providing the look-and-feel, with their holistic approach to graphic design, cultural production and social change.

We start off with Respiration, an exhibition that delves into the political significance of breathing for people of African descent, more specifically in the Québec context.
