What do the Château Dufresne, Château Ramezay, Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal, the residence of Sir George-Étienne Cartier and the Guido Molinari Foundation have in common? Their historical mission, of course—but there’s another aspect, quite particular to these museum spaces, that aims to immerse visitors in atmospheres specific to times long past: rooms that reconstitute historic interiors and narratives.
As part of the exhibition Period rooms. 8 art experimentations, a series of urban itineraries will take place between June 15 and July 13. This original educational program devised by VOX will be a chance to (re)visit celebrated people and places from local history while exploring today’s culture through works by contemporary creators.
During these various itineraries—on foot, public transit or chartered bus—participants will join personalized guided tours of the chosen sites and will be invited to share their impressions, engage with some of the artists, or take part in a workshop. Each of these will be an enriching, entertaining opportunity for learning and network!
