A new exhibition of photos and posters from ACT UP MTL (1990-1993) are on display at the Archives Gaies du Quebec (AGQ) this summer. The exhibition is curated by Mark Andrew Hamilton in collaboration with ACT UP MTL photographer René LeBoeuf and AGQ archivist Simone Beaudry-Pilotte. The exhibition features materials from the Hendricks – LeBoeuf fonds that are held at the AGQ. LeBoeuf took more than 2,000 photos during ACT UP MTL’s short but explosive existence in the early 1990s, a selection of which are featured in this exhibition. Check out the web gallery below for a taste of what you will find when check it out!
