BAnQ ( Bibliothèque et Archives Nationales du Québec ), 2275 rue Holt, métro Rosemont

Picking, pressing, drying, gluing: come and explore artistic practices in printed arts similar to the making of a herbarium, as well as heritage documents on the subject of botany. The presentation will be followed by a visit to the Special Collections storeroom, where some of the most valuable documents are kept. A unique opportunity to discover the Bibliothèque Nationale (Rosemont site), which is in a building built to store tobacco leaves, and which now houses all of Quebec’s published heritage.
