Artists Animate the Expo 67 Archives

The Post Image Cluster, in collaboration with Hexagram is pleased to presents Artists Animate the Expo 67 Archives. The series of talks highlight artists’ processes of working in/with archives by presenting, discussing, and reflecting on artists’ research-creation processes.

In Search of Expo 67 brings together works by nineteen Québec and Canadian artists inspired by the most innovative, experimental and provocative dimensions of the original event, and its artistic, social and political context. Created in dialogue with the spirit of 1967, these works (sixteen of which are newly commissioned) challenge some of the underlying presumptions of Expo 67 while also highlighting its undeniable inventiveness.
