Exhibition on Muslim Youth at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts

Short-film by Mercedeh Baroque, "Art of Inclusion" Exhibition.

The educative exhibition The Art of Inclusion: Muslim Youth take the Lead is being presented free to the public at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, from November 7, 2016, to January 8, 2017. The fruit of  a partnership between the Michaëlle Jean Foundation, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA), and the Institute for Research and Education on Race Relations, the feature focuses on rendering the rich diversity embodied by the Muslim youth of Quebec, by offering an unprecedented opportunity for the public to discover, for the first time in a museum setting, the world through their own eyes. Project partners selected ten artists, offering each a unique chance to express, through their own artwork, strong attachment to Quebec and Canada and to suggest ways to enhance their integration into all spheres of our society. The initiative is part of the 4th Wall: Make the Invisible Visible exhibition series, organized in partnership with major Canadian museums and art galleries. It offers exhibition space in a museum and bursaries to youth from marginalized backgrounds, so they can produce artwork, which express their experiences, ideas and challenges.
