Exhibition presented by Marion Arbona, Renaud Plante and Nicolas Trost


On view from September 18 to December 11


Do you know the covers of the New Yorker? These drawings inviting you to a trip, a social criticism, a quirky perception of the city and her inhabitants? The exhibition The Montrealer reinterprets this concept and pays a tribute to the New Yorker and but also to the beautiful Montreal. Come and (re)discover the city trough the vision of 52 illustrators and 10 Quebecois authors. Each cover tells a story, each detail explores Montreal in her most touching everyday life, her crisis, her streets, her winter and her little secret places.


Whether you know Montreal or not, this exhibition will move you, by the delicacy and diversity of the drawings and by the crossed visions on a multicultural, magical and exciting city. 


Digged up from the archives, discover the original covers from the real Montrealer, as published in the 30s, then continue the journey with the Parisianer, the Tokyoiter and the Shanghairen presented in the gallery Pierre Léon of Alliance Francaise Toronto. An exhibition which will make you want to explore the world and rediscover the city!
