PLATFORM in Munich and Darling Foundry in Montreal aim to strengthen the artistic and cultural links between the two states, Bavaria and Quebec. Following the first exchange in March 2015, where curator Dominique Sirois-Rouleau and artist Philippe Hamelin participated in an intense exploration of Munich, it is the Darling Foundry's turn to welcome a curator and an artist for a week in Montreal. The purpose of this exchange is to provide an overview of the Montreal art scene.
This project is supported by the Bavarian State Chancellery as part of their cooperation agreement with LOJIQ.
