until June 25, 2017

For its second year of operation, the Atelier/Gallery imagined et directed by visual artist Marc Gosselin, opens its doors to de new artists. The Archipel event represents this new activity  of the gallery and its ambition to fit into the local landscape. The will  of Marc Gosselin is to give artists from the Hochelaga district, and more broadly to Montreal artists, the possibility of showing their work to the public. The initiative is free, both for the artists and for the visitors.

For 6 months now, six artists have gathered around Marc Gosselin and formed this collective of multidisciplinary artists. From isolated islands are born the archipelagos, the name "Archipelago" then represents the heterogeneity of its inspirations and the diversity  of practices.

A vernissage and performances will be offered on Thursday, June 8, 2017 from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. After this time, The Archipel exhibition will be on until June 25.
