Modern leisures and liberties: reflections on the Summer Holidays! exhibition

The McCord’s Inside Stories

The Museum has close to one hundred albums compiled by amateur photographers who captured their family vacation souvenirs with Kodak cameras. These everyday images of children, friends, big events and trips are often described as candid, common, or even run-of-the-mill, yet they provide a rich trove of unique information.

With a focus on snapshots selected for the Summer Holidays! exhibition, this lecture provides a better understanding of the documentary potential of vernacular photography and describes the upheavals from 1900 to 1940 that changed Quebec society.

With Eugénie Marcil, Archivist, Collections and Research.

The lectures from the series Tea at the McCord focus on the Museum’s collections and exhibitions.
The presentation will be in French followed by a bilingual question period.
Tea and biscuits are served.

Location:  J. Armand Bombardier Theatre at the McCord Museum
