HISTOIRE(S) DE TERRITOIRE(S)

Information on the activity

January 18, 2024 to March 9, 2024

From January 18 to March 9, 2024.

The exhibition "Histoire(s) de territoire(s)" features works by Jessica Houston (Montreal) and Laurence Butet-Roch (Toronto). Both artists are deeply interested in environmental justice and the construction of narratives through the prism of colonial history and territorial violations. In particular, they examine the responsibility of visual documentation rooted in collective memory, and propose a dialogue between archive and contemporary image in order to revise unilateral narratives. Questioning their own legitimacy in this process of re-actualization, each considers it essential to inscribe their approach in a collaborative and consultative process necessary for thinking about future readings, in the light of new imaginaries.
