CONNECT4, is an artist run pop up exhibition featuring the works of Mathieu Connery, Labrona, Kevin Ledo and Alex Scaner. Four of Montreal’s most beloved street artists will be coming together for a ten day exhibit that runs from June 9th to 19th, with an opening reception on June 15th.
The exhibition is working in conjunction with this year’s edition of MURAL Festival. All four artists are well known for their contributions to past editions of the MURAL festival, but more so for their years of work in the city and beyond, and for their long standing devotion to the Montreal’s street art and/or graffiti scenes.
This is a rare and not to be missed chance to see a substantial collection of studio work by each of these artists who are more known for what they produce on the streets. It is a opportunity to get to see a more reﬁned and mature side to their work.
CONNECT4 June 9th to 19th, 11h-21h
Opening: June 15th, 18h-22h on 4440 Boul. Saint Laurent, Montreal
