The Photobook Club: Territory

The Photobook Club – Montreal is holding a discussion workshop at the McCord Museum on the representation, use and appropriation of territory in photobooks and on the photographic practices of artists of yesterday and today.

The proposed discussion, referencing Cree artist Kent Monkman’s exhibition Shame and Prejudice – A Story of Resilience, will look at Indigenous and environmental questions and focus in particular on the notion of territory throughout Canada, but also in the Americas in general.

The Photobook Club invites workshop participants to bring in photobooks on the topic from their personal collections and to contribute to the discussion by sharing their views with the group.

An initiative of Jean-François Hamelin, Josée Schryer and Thomas Bouquin.

Free activity, reservation mandatory via Eventbrite 
The presentation will be given in French, but participants are welcome to speak French or English.

Location: J. Armand Bombardier Theatre, McCord Museum
