Galerie Youn has organized this summer’s group under the theme Black Rainbow in conjunction with the many events that punctuate LGBT pride month in Montreal. As a spin on the ubiquitous icon of gay pride (DIVERS/CITÉ), Black Rainbow presents a selection of works from sixteen artists. The show offers diversity: different mediums – from drawings to prints to photos to installations –, different sizes – from small dolls to large paintings –, artists with different social and national backgrounds. Some works are highly sexualized; some offer a new take on well-loved cultural icons. The show blends in with the Mile End’s diverse culture offering.
