Vernissage photos!

So we had our exhibition vernissage last night and it went wonderfully! We took some great shots so I thought I would share them with you here.  Thank you so much to the Department of Art History at Concordia for supporting this exhibition and our research endeavors!

 Jessie, a member of our group who has written about the Maguire Meadow produced a map outlining the island of Montreal and placed each of our sites on that map.
 We showed each intervention on a piece of white vellum and each had a pile of "stuff" that referenced our project.  A last minute decision was also made to allow people to write on the ends of the vellum however we will see how this goes :)

 One of the many group photos we took that night, we are sitting in front of our respective interventions.


 Both the Art History Graduate Program Director: Dr. Johanne Sloan, and the Chair of Art History: Dr. Loren Lerner were in attendance

 We had a bit of live entertainment provided by Patrick Lehman, his website is:

And, our final group shot - not including everyone unfortunately but we were all there in spirit.  Thank you so much for enjoying this blog and we will continue to update on our interventions and sites in the future!

Email us if you would like to be a part of this blog, we would love to hear about your own interventions you do in public spaces you live around and would more than love including your own project in our blog!

Keep intervening and situate yourself within your object of research!

The exhibition will run until the end of august so come by the Concordia Art History Department 3rd floor (art history wing) in the EV building to check it out!
