Promiscuous Infrastructures (Phase II) aims to visualise/materialise Artivistic’s research practice and create an inviting space for others to reflect and participate. The exhibition/installation is based around four separate, but promiscuous spaces; a central print workshop for making zines, a research library, a meeting space, and a dining room. The typo/graphic message in Skol’s entranceway (pictured above) subtly describes the political context of the project.


There is no model, only memory (and those we hold dear)



Love letters to Montréal. See full post here.


The print workshop.



The library.


The soundtrack: Wu-Tang’s C.R.E.A.M. Accompanied by gold letterpress prints by Kiva.





The walls are adorned with typographic statements and photos by Thien, documenting the too-often unvalorized work of radical organising.




The public is invited to create their own zine from a wide selection of texts and images.



The Awesomest Foundation is offering a randomly drawn $500 prize for project proposals.


The meeting space.


An indexical cartography of Montreal-based organisations and collectives.



Some things we’re working on.

The exhibition runs until April 14th at Skol, complemented by a series of informal workshops, discussions and performances—visit artivistic.org for details.
