A busy spring!

Arcmtl is presenting at a free, open to the public conference on Collection Thinking on Thursday June 14, 1:30 pm, with director Louis Rastelli on a panel about Collection and Communities, at the Concordia Richler Library, on the sixth floor of the J.W. McConnell library building.

Arcmtl had a great time working with the Chromatic Festival once again this year, where we installed one of our Distroboto machines and hosted as part ofChromatic Pro a zine creation workshop integrating elements of augmented reality. Lastly, Expozine and the magazine Grilled Cheese held a zine workshop for kids as part of Chromatic Kids.

We also mounted an exhibit of comic art featuring legendary Montreal comic artist and longtime Arcmtl colleague Siris at Espace Lafontaine, 3933 Ave. du Parc-La Fontaine, as part of the seventh annualFestival de B.D. de Montréal during May 2018.

Arcmtl had a very busy 2017! You can see photos on our image blog, such as from our Possibles project and book launch in April, our Grande Print Art Fair in May, our Expo 67: Avant Garde! exhibit in May at the Cinémathèque Québecoise and in June at Casa del Popolo, our poster exhibit at the 77 Montreal punk music festival in July, the Kermesse littéraire du Plateau in August and Expozine in November.
