Formed on the basis of promoting the next generation of artists in Montreal, Artch is the combined effort of Art Souterrain, Jack Marketing and the Carrefour jeunesse-emploi Montréal Center-Ville that started in 2018.
The full list of artists and their bios can be found on Artch's Instagram page, with interview questions on their formative experiences as artists, where they see themselves in 10 years, where they've held exhibitions, how they work with their mediums, and more.
Given the effect the pandemic's had on artistic communities both here and abroad, the time's never been better for Montrealers to get out and support the work of others in the beginning and developing stages of their careers.
