Lost Neighbourhoods

Lost NeighbourhoodsThe Lost Neighbourhoods exhibition was presented at the CHM from June 15, 2011 to September 1, 2013. Now, you can discover it as if you were there. Here, we present the exhibition in its entirety in the form of photo-captions by Denis-Carl Robidoux that give you access to all the content of the exhibition, as well as video testimonials, texts and photo archives. The Habitations Jeanne-Mance housing project, the Radio Canada building and the Bonaventure Expressway replaced entire stretches of old neighbourhoods. From an exceptional and little-known municipal collection of photographs of houses, businesses and backyards that were devoured by modernization, the exhibition brings the memory of these lost neighbourhoods and their inhabitants back to life. In collaboration with the citys archives department.

There is a special focus on the time Dr. Bethune spent in Montral, a place where he had many definitive encounters that made him the practitioner, artist and communist activist we know today.
