The Grande Bibliothèque and the Montréal Archives Centre, major cultural beacons of the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec, present a variety of exhibitions.
To mark the 100th anniversary of HEC Montréal, a circuit tour of the building where the École des hautes études commerciales de Montréal was founded has been designed. Several photographic archives of great interest illustrate the early evolution of this institution, a major influence in Québec’s socioeconomic expansion. The building now houses BAnQ‘s Centre d’archives de Montréal.

Unparalleled stage director, André Brassard was at the very heart of Québec’s theatre world for more than 30 years. This exhibition offers new insight into the body of work of a prolific artist who left his mark on Québec's cultural landscape, starting with the debut of Les Belles-sœurs in 1968.

Starting in the early 1950s, Québec photographer Gabriel Desmarais (Gaby) enjoyed a meteoric rise to success on an international level. For over 30 years, he captured on film the features and personalities of the most renown stars of the day, raising the standards of portraiture to rarely equalled heights.

This important exhibition will appeal to spectators’ senses and emotions even as it pays playful tribute to Michel Tremblay’s impressive life and work. Curated by the Musées de la civilisation, it draws from the audiovisual records and writings of this great Québec playwright and novelist to chronicle the extraordinary power of his work.

Ever since you were a little kid, you’ve asked your parents, your friends, and your brothers and sisters questions, a lot of questions... You’re just trying to understand who you are and the world you are living in. It’s also what philosophers do: they raise questions, think and reflect. The exhibition Penser! Une expérience philo was created specifically for you. You and your family and friends can experience the playful environment of our idea lab, speak out, listen to others and form your own opinion about a host of various topics! Think about it!
