Fugues se Souvient:
30 Years of Homosexualtiy in Quebec
Adults $8:00, Student, Senior & Child $6.00
A testimony to the evolution of the GLBT community within
Quebecois society, the exhibition Fugues se souvient covers notable
moments from the last thirty years.
Against a backdrop of almost 400 magazine covers, the
visitor will traverse pivotal stages of social change by encountering
themes that include HIV/AIDS, the recognition of same sex couples, the
birth and evolution of the Village, the pink economy, gender identity,
male aesthetics, etc. From marginality to equality, Fugues remembers.
Founded in 1980 and incorporated in 1982, the Écomusée
du fier monde is both a Montréal working class and industrial
history museum and a community museum. Recognized and supported
by the ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec
and by the Conseil des arts de Montréal, the Écomusée
emphasizes the history and heritage of the Centre-Sud in Montréal.
As a microcosm of the Industrial Revolution in Québec in
the second half of the 19th century, this neighbourhood witnessed
firsthand the impact of industry on labour as well as on the living
conditions of working class families.
The Écomusée du fier monde develops
its museum practice based on popular education and establishes participatory
projects in close collaboration with the neighbourhood’s citizens,
institutions and organizations. Furthermore, it is engaged in the
issues that concern present and future development of its surroundings.
