The Salon 1861 and Laboratory of Urban Culture

Benefiting from a rich history and the contributions of many artists who have lived in the neighborhood over the years, the QI territory continues to welcome many key players on the Montreal culture scene, with space for arts venues, galleries and studios. The QI’s Laboratory of Urban Culture will marry this effervescent spirit with academic expertise in the arts to create opportunities for exchange between artists, professors, students and local residents. The Laboratory will be installed in the Salon 1861 with a full range collaborative research projects, exhibits, events, artists’ workshops and community organizations available to the community.

Led by: Will Straw, Professor, Department of Art History and Communications Studies, McGill and Natalie Voland, CEO QuoVadis.
