Papier15 and Gallery Hop Montreal

Mark your calendars for these two interconnected events:

1. Papier15: Contemporary Art Fair of Works on Paper
Montreal’s Papier is one of the only art fairs in North America to put a unique emphasis on paper. For its eighth year, Papier hosts 40 galleries and 400 artists from across the country. Papier remains accessible, both to beginner collectors and to the general public: admission is free, as are the fair’s talks, tours and catalogue.
Complexe de Gaspé, 5445 av. de Gaspé, 10th and 11th floors
Friday, April 24, noon – 9 pm
Saturday, April 25, 11 am – 7 pm
Sunday, April 26, 11 am – 6 pm.
The de Gaspé hub is home to six artist-run centres and hundreds of artists’ studios. Mile End is now a burgeoning venue for contemporary Canadian art, with the highest density of artists and cultural workers in the country.

2. Gallery Hop Montreal: Art. Talks. Tours.
Saturday, April 25, 2015
This year’s Gallery Hop Montreal is taking place in conjunction with Papier15. The Canadian Art Foundation will have a booth at Papier15 where you can learn about all of the MTL Hop events, and many Hop tours and talks will start at the fair. The two major gallery tours offered, in either English or French, are of the Belgo Building and Griffintown/Old Montreal. Many other galleries are participating, and you can find a list of them with their addresses by going to the event’s website.
