Exhibition from May 4 to May 26, 2019
Opening: Saturday, May 4 at 2 pm
Meeting with the curators: Sunday, May 5 at 2 pm

Musée des maîtres et artisans du Québec, in collaboration with the Festival Accès Asie, Productions Feux Sacré, and Teesri Duniya Theater, is delighted to present this double exhibition, Exil – Peuples d’ici et d’ailleurs and Bridges of Hope. The public is cordially invited to attend the opening on Saturday, May 4th, from 2 pm to 4 pm at the Musée des maîtres et artisans du Québec.

Exil – Peuples d’ici et d’ailleurs is curated by Hanieh Ziaei and Nadine St-Louis and brings together artists Eruoma Awashish, Chadi Ayoub, and Kamal. The artists explore the theme of exile as a moment of transition and change, both individual and collective, through different mediums: installations, sculptures, drawings, and photographs.

Bridges of Hope examines the notion of exile, diaspora, and cross-cultural experiences through visual and photographic works by South Asian artists Anita Rau Badami, Jayanta Guha, and Jaswant Guzder, also the curator of this exhibition.

Following the exhibitions, a meeting with the curators will take place on Sunday, May 5th at 2 pm at the Musée and will return to the theme of exile and the territory.
