Fugitifs!: Musees national des beaux-arts du Quebec, Quebec City, Canada




The MNBAQ presents the Fugitifs! exhibition, designed and orchestrated by historian and hip-hop artist Webster. Nine illustrators create the faces of 13 slaves described in advertisements published in La Gazette de Quebec and La Gazette de Montreal. The portraits are integrated into the gallery of portraits of city dignitaries presented in the 350 Years of Artistic Practices in Quebec exhibition, thus restoring a human face to individuals who were dehumanized by slavery.

The exhibition is presented in conjunction with the Culture visuelle et memoire de l'esclavage au Quebec conference.
