An exhibition catalogue with roots in Acadia of the lands and the forest


Did you know that preparing the exhibition catalogue for the Témiscouata Museum’s permanent exhibition, “Enracinés”, was the fruit of a collaboration between the museum, the Témiscouata Historical and Archaeological Society, the Colline Art Gallery and the Madawaska Historical Society in Edmundston? The publication was released in July 2015 following the exhibition and the inauguration of the museum’s new premises during festivities for the Congrès mondial acadien 2014.

The 76-page illustrated catalogue is part of the Revue de la Société historique du Madawaska’s publication series and is in two parts. One focuses on the Témiscouata Museum’s exhibition and looks at forests from economic, social and cultural angles. The history of the people of the forest is told through the voices of those who have lived it. The other part focuses on an exhibition of four contemporary artists presented at the Madawaska Historical Museum. Joël Boudreau, Luc A. Charrette, Gabrielle Gendron and Réjean Toussaint were all invited to create an artwork that illustrated their relation with the land.

It is together that we succeed here!
