Hochelaga-Maisonneuve – Evolving Montreal

Joannie Lafrenière

Photographer and film director Joannie Lafrenière offers a colourful, sensitive portrait of the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighbourhood as she takes viewers on an immersive photographic and cinematographic journey. The exhibition documents places but also the relationships people have with a neighbourhood that has undergone many transformations over time.

Joannie Lafrenière, a proud resident of Hochelaga for some 15 years, is known for her humour-inflected and human-centred artistic practice.

Evolving Montreal

With this exhibition, the McCord Museum continues its program of photographic commissions titled Evolving Montreal. To document Montreal’s ongoing urban transformation, the Museum is commissioning well-known local photographers to explore the changes occurring in a neighbourhood of their choice.

This program started with the exhibition Griffintown by Robert Ralker that was on display in 2020.
