Archive Collective is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition, “The Awakening,” opening on June 21 in Montreal.


Archive Contemporary’s inaugural exhibition, coinciding with the summer solstice, brings together nine artists and photographers channelling movement, emergence and temporality through their work. Using the idea of magical realism as a starting point, The Awakening explores the tension between order and chaos, reality and artifice, natural and supernatural. These stirring and energetic pieces address the interior mysteries of the natural world, presenting familiar life in an unfamiliar way and reminding us of the inherent enigmas of our lived environment.
