Les archives du futur is part of a vast curatorial project, linking the living arts and feminist thought. This multidisciplinary project takes shape through a collective research process leading to the writing of feminist art histories. This collective work will bring together the voices of women artists and/or LGBTQ+ from different generations in Quebec and elsewhere. Les archives du futur brings together a series of activities involving current and past art communities. Workshops, informal teachings, experiments and discussions will be developed with diverse artists and researchers leading to the collection of embodied, creative and feminist documentary materials. The activities will lead to the creation of a collection of “living archives” that will be activated at events. The project will culminate in the presentation of the group exhibition De chair et d’os, alliances féministes, which will present the “living archive” collection and new works by artists in the field of the performing and visual arts. Les archives du futur is the first research and creation phase of the project, which will take place over two years and involve partnerships with a variety of arts organizations.
Curator: Véronique Hudon
