Project ArmHer is part of the art exhibit, Témoigner pour agir, opening Wednesday, November 29th at Maison de la culture Frontenac (2550, rue Ontario Est) in Montréal. Témoigner pour agir runs until January 21st, 2018.
From Testimonial Cultures:
“With this exhibition, there is the opportunity to discover the stories of people self-identifying as gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, trans, intersex, and of persons living with HIV or that have sex work experience… Témoigner pour Agir has developped an ethical discourse that highlights the aesthetic, historical and political issues, and challenges, that arise when testimonials about sexuality, body and gender expression, sex work and HIV-positive status are delivered publicly.
The artworks, from both professional artists and community art projects, present narratives that are intimate and contemporary, which reflect a collective struggle and a call for solidarity.”
