Temporary Exhibit

In the Yadia’wish room (the Turtle room), overlooking the river, the Museum presents a continually updated calendar of exhibits found here and in other institutions. Whether artistic or ethnological in nature, these exhibits allow visitors to further their knowledge of specific aspects of Wendat culture, discover other Amerindian cultures, or appreciate the genius and creativity of Aboriginal artists of yesterday and today.

CURRENT EXHIBIT (May 18th to October 9th, 2017)

Microcosme

An initiative of the Métiers d'art / Lower St. Lawrence Corporation, this exhibition was created with the vision to bring people together, and has two components at heart: Creation and Sharing. The creation component consisted of pairing seven Lower St. Lawrence region artists with seven Aboriginal artists from different First Nations of Quebec.  Artists were invited to create a two-part piece of work. First, everyone created a miniature work of art which was given to their respective partner. This piece was included into the final work of each artist. The sharing component is currently underway, thanks to the exhibition.
