Montreal Shows 1965 – 1975: Art Pop 2015, Exhibit Gallery
Here is a gallery of images taken of the huge exhibit Archive Montreal mounted for the Art Pop component of the 2015 Pop Montreal International Music Festival in Montreal.
The exhibit took place, fittingly enough, in the former École des Beaux Arts on St-Urbain just north of Sherbrooke, where a great many artists, writers and musicians from the music and arts scene of the 1960s and 1970s attended school at the time.
The exhibit was curated by Archive Montreal, in particular administrator Louis Rastelli and archival researcher Alex Taylor.
Many thanks to the various donors of materials and resources for the exhibit: Erik Slutsky, Endré Farkas, Gaetan Dostie, Harriet Eisenkraft, Francois Dallegret, Alain Simard, Garth Gilker, Alex Taylor, Michael Nemes, Alan Youster and Sébastien Desrosiers. Original photographs, which in most cases were printed from negatives for the first time for this exhibit, were kindly provided by the photographers Errol Gagné, Michael Nemes, Ron Petronko and Jeremy Taylor.
Web galleries featuring specific collections and photo galleries included in the exhibit will be posted at our project website, mtlundergroundorigins.ca , where one can also read blog posts and interviews with various artists, writers and Montrealers active in the city’s cultural scene in the 1960s – 1970s.
This gallery comprises photographs taken by Christina Love Higham and Louis Rastelli, all copyrights 2015.
