As Montreal celebrates its 375th anniversary, we require an Emergency Landing. The promotional material being put forward by The Society for the Celebration of Montreal's 375th Anniversary promotes a monochromatic white city whose festive atmosphere erases its ongoing history of colonial violence. Montreal Monochrome V: Emergency Landing aims to halt the course of this false narrative.

Montreal Monochrome is an annual event which aims to address the mis- and under-representation and systemic oppression of marginalized groups in Montreal’s contemporary art milieu. The event works toward imagining and nurturing new and existing bonds, solidarities and friendships between Indigenous artists, thinkers and cultural workers and their racialized allies. This edition aspires to explore Montreal’s urban landscape and its many (marked and unmarked) sites of violence and resistance through a series of creative projects, workshops, discussions, performances and field trips which prioritize Indigenous and racialized voices. The interventions – in and outside of articule’s walls – aim to question the concepts of time, territory and land(ing). 

This is an invitation to examine the city’s current colonial structure, to invent together the possibilities of decolonial futures and to explore how the present and the future can be indigenously determined. In considering new spaces of landing, we examine the responsibilities implicated in every migratory experience.


articule’s Fabulous Committee’s mandate is to develop anti-oppression strategies to make the centre more inclusive and culturally diverse. This includes the artists we present through our programming as well as our internal structure (members, board, staff).
