Since the opening of its exhibition space in 2012, at the 2-22 building in the heart of Montreal’s Quartier des Spectacles, Artexte has presented a multitude of exhibitions in relation to the documentation of contemporary art, print and art publishing, most of which have been produced through partnerships. In the spirit of artistic collectivity, Artexte collaborates with artists, researchers in residence and curators, both individuals and collectives, to present their work in relation to Artexte’s permanent collection.
