As part of the centennial celebrations to honour the artist Jean Paul Riopelle, which will take place in 2023, the Biosphère/Montréal Space for Life and LOJIQ - Les Offices jeunesse internationaux du Québec, in collaboration with GSI Musique, the Centre de la francophonie des Amériques and the Riopelle Foundation, are inviting twelve artists from the international Francophonie to participate in the exhibition Migrations, which will run from June 3, 2023 to May 5, 2024 at the Biosphère.

The theme of migration patterns, which echoes Riopelle's fascination with wild geese, a migratory symbol par excellence, is central to this new exhibition. Artists can also draw inspiration from the migration patterns of humans, animals and plants, amplified by climate change, their interdependence, and the fragile balance that needs to be preserved or restored.
