Galerie Les Territoires, a non-profit organization, is an artistic local where diffusion and artistic analysis of emerging art and its practices are combined. The gallery’s objective is to allow emerging artists to develop their careers on the institutional scene, to facilitate their integration on the art market and to provide support in their different artistic practices. Les Territoires aims to disseminate art on the national and international scale and to diversify the Montreal contemporary art scene.
PRESENTATION OF THE ORGANIZATION
Les Territoires gallery was founded in 2008 by young artists and directors who wanted to improve the situation of emerging artists in Montreal. It is now recognized as the only gallery in Quebec to specifically support contemporary artists early in their careers. For six years now, our goal is to foster innovative practices, while allowing young artists to develop a sustainable and rewarding career. Our exhibition programs support artists in their different artistic manifestations, increase their visibility on the institutional stage and integrate the market and the world of contemporary art. Our activities create a space dedicated to emerging artists and contribute to the sharing of artistic experience with diverse audiences.
