Surprisingly well done
Jul. 2019
We popped in here one afternoon when we had some time between other activities & dinner. I found it quite interesting, more so than I expected. It's in 2 different buildings, so don't miss that. The Yoko Ono exhibit was there when we visited, & I thought it was exceptional, very thought-provling.

Contemporary Art in Old Montreal
Nov. 2018 • Friends
Great multi level space in two old office buildings lovingly restored and adapted. Current show is Jasmina Cibic. Mesmerizing multi media show based on saving architecture that has lost its functions, is out of style or has some controversial political messaging, Exceptionally well done and ties into a complete narrative. Really well curated. Free but do make a donation.

A hidden gem of contemporary art
Jun. 2017 • Solo
DHC Foundation is an incredible contemporary art gallery tucked into Old Montreal with exhibitions at the forefront of the art world. Tours and workshops are available or you can just walk in - for free. The staff are very helpful.

Contemporary art enclave
Jul. 2016
This is a hidden gem if you appreciate contemporary art. DHC Art has a building with 4 floors plus an annex for exhibition space in Old Montreal. They had experiential art and videos by artist Joan Jonas when we visited. Her art took over all the exhibition space. This was the kind of art you could walk through or sit and watch a video. As an art school grad who is open minded, I appreciated this show. However if you like your art traditional like the usual paintings or sculpture, you may think this is too out there.

Interesting space for art and free
Jul. 2016 • Solo
I went on a Sunday after Sunday mass at Notre Dame (which I also advised to attend) . The art gallery is divided in 2 buildings, one has 4 floors and the other 6 rooms and a basement. I went to see the Jonas installation, it was weird but also interesting , but what I inked the most was the space itself, for sure I reccomend this art gallery as Inunderstand they are always showing well known artists.

If you like Art Galleries then don't miss this small & interesting gallery. It's located in Saint -Jean Street in Old Montreal. It's housed in a lovely historical building mostly exhibiting modern contemporary artworks.

A first rate free modern art experience
Nov. 2015 • Friends
WOW - a kind of free museum combo gallery which offer art but doesn't sell it...only a private foundation could do this and the result is serious fun and wonderful. Truly awesome - an eyeopener. We did the Brazil show and had the tour... very fine work, moving, captivating, very well presented. The guides want us to experience and interact. This is goo for art and for us!
