  • 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.

    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.

    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.
