To illustrate this point, we have chosen original and unique works that stand out for their materiality, the quality of their execution and the subjects they address.

From June 9, 2023, as part of the Hors les Murs program of the Révélations Grand Palais show, the gallery LA Joaillerie by Mazlo is in Quebec time by welcoming the Noel Guyomarc'h Gallery and 9 of its artists. An exhibition under the curated by Noel Guyomarc'h and Stéphane Blackburn.

A whimsical play on words, between the artist's hand and "la Main", the name given to the boulevard St-Laurent on which the Noel Guyomac'h gallery is based! Short for Main Street in English, this street that divides the city of Montreal is a meeting place for the French-speaking, English-speaking and immigrant communities. Dynamic and lively, it's home to unusual boutiques, cosmopolitan restaurants, bars and nightclubs, as well as numerous artists' studios and art galleries!
