Launch tour

SATELLITE, a decade of transcontinental explorations

August 6, 2022 - August 25, 2022
The Montreal launch of SATELLITE takes place at Vinet Park (Little Burgundy) on August 25th, 5pm. Everyone is welcome! See below for other dates and locations.

The publication SATELLITE retraces the first trajectories of a program of cross-border artistic explorations initiated in 2011, outside of our Montreal anchor territory. More than a retrospective visual panorama and a presentation of ephemeral works produced in three very different urban contexts (Detroit, Tijuana, Mexico City), the book proposes a series of recent observations in which the artists involved and their allied hosts revive deep memories, trace the paths of thought and experience, reveal the traces left in their creative practices and intellectual reflections, and even reveal the repercussions on their career or artistic mission. SATELLITE is a trilingual publication (English, Spanish, French).

La Quiñonera (Mexico City), Espacio Cultural Observatorio (Tijuana), 27th Letter Books (Detroit) and DARE-DARE (Montreal) are pleased to host a special presentation of SATELLITE with several of the anthology's authors and artists. These will be special events during which Martin Dufrasne, DARE-DARE's art program coordinator, will review the ten-year SATELLITE initiative.

The book will be available for purchase at a special introductory price.
