Mapping the automatists

 

INTRODUCTION

Artists in alphabetical order

It is through the places where they studied, worked, and exhibited that we invite you to meet the artists of the Automatists group in Montreal between 1939 and 1955.

 

Their contribution is immense in the fields of visual arts, dance, literature, theater, design and psychoanalysis in Quebec and Canada.

 

We invite you to discover no less than 50 locations to visit where these artists have been active privately and publicly.
