The artist and theorist Melvin Charney, who died earlier this year, made significant contributions to the CCA and the city of Montreal as a whole. Throughout a long and varied career, Charney championed the public role of the architect in the wider built environment, enforcing the idea that the street is the primary resource of the city. The CCA is celebrating Charney’s life by presenting Les Maisons de la rue Sherbrooke, a work that exemplifies his approach. The project was Charney’s personal contribution to an art event to celebrate the city during the Olympic Games held in Montreal in 1976.
Curated by Martien de Vletter and Louise Désy, CCA.
